After a short overview of the history of the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA) this conversation zones in on some of the hot topics that are being discussed in the field; devices and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machines, as well as trans-esophageal echocardiography and how the practice has evolved. The conversation ends with a discussion about pre-habilitation in a resource stretched environment.

Presented by Desiree Chappell with Sol Aronson and Jamie Ramsey, Medical Director Cardiac ICU at UCF and Gerald Levy, MD at Duke University.
