CURRENT CME COURSE LISTING (more will be added in the coming months):
Ex-Vivo Lung Perfusion in 2019: From Research to Implementation (1.5 Credits)
This symposium will bring experts in Ex-Vivo Lung Perfusion and donor lung management from all over the world. Current practices, different models, ongoing clinical trials with EVLP and added therapeutics will be discussed. The attendee will increase his or her understanding of the technique, its applications and future directions. A 15-min panel discussion with all speakers will conclude this session.
Re-Focusing the Blurry Vision: Biomarkers of Thoracic Allograft Rejection (1.5 Credits)
The goal of this symposium is to review advances in molecular diagnostic assessments and novel biomarkers in thoracic (both heart and lung) organ transplantation. This will include approaches that are being applied clinically and others that are investigational but that can provide greater insight into the pathophysiology and immunology of allograft rejection.
Medical Management of LVAD Patients: Once the Chest is Closed, the Trouble Begins (1.5 Credits)
This symposium will examine state of the art knowledge on device programming and medical management of LVAD patients. Current controversies such as the utility of platelet function monitoring and invasive hemodynamic testing will be reviewed and debated. A 10-min panel discussion with all speakers will conclude this session.
