Intensive Sessions

The Intensives are a two-part series of sessions focused on new and growing areas in cardiovascular practice, and use gaps in competencies and knowledge to develop sessions that will expand an attendee's understanding of the selected topic. These unique programs offer attendees the opportunity to deep dive into a specific area of concentration. This year's intensive topic is Critical Care Cardiology.

Critical Care Cardiology Intensive I: Cardiogenic Shock — Featuring the 54th Annual Louis F. Bishop Keynote

March 4 Noon – 1:15 p.m. CT
La Nouvelle B Interdisciplinary Education Channel

Cardiogenic shock is one of the leading causes of mortality in the Cardiac ICU. It has been studied, classified into stages, but mortality remains high in this condition. This session aims to discuss cardiogenic shock from the perspective of general consultative cardiology and will demonstrate the role of critical care cardiology at the nexus of acute cardiovascular care. Plus, join us for the Bishop Keynote presented by Susanna Price, MD, PhD, "The Evolution of the Cardiac ICU: The Present is not the Past nor can it be the Future?,"  and end with novel devices and innovations to enhance clinical care in the cardiac patient requiring critical care.

Critical Care Cardiology Intensive II: Cardiac Arrest - Global Approaches to Cardiac Arrest Care: Inequities and Solutions

March 4 1:45 – 3 p.m. CT
La Nouvelle B

International differences in clinical practice and evolving guidelines can reveal critical evidence gaps and opportunities for improved care. Cardiac arrest has mortality rates that are as high as 50% and are areas of intense focus for research. However, best clinical practice remains controversial. This session is designed to provide an international perspective on state-of-the-art care and areas of uncertainty in the management of this high-risk condition encountered commonly in and out of the cardiac intensive care unit. Global health and health equity are priorities. Join us to learn about health inequities related to cardiac arrest and solutions to improve global health.
