The Postgraduate Course in Cardiology for Anaesthesiologist-Resuscitators prepares professionals for an in-depth analysis and hands-on management of the most relevant cardiological aspects.
The course covers topics such as electrocardiography and basic echocardiography and thorax ultrasound elements. It also covers aspects such as: pre-operative evaluation of cardiopathic patients who have to undergo non-cardiac surgery, perioperative management of anti-aggregating and anti-coagulating treatments, perioperative management of pacemakers and other devices. Further fields of study are the management of cardiological urgencies/emergencies, to the extent applicable to a resuscitator, diagnosis and management of arrhythmias, and also hemodynamic aspects in the Intensive Care Unit.
The Postgraduate Course in Cardiology for Anaesthesiologist-Resuscitators is held in partnership with the Padua Hospital and the ULSS 3 Serenissima Health Unit.
The course units of the Postgraduate Course in Cardiology for Anaesthesiologist-Resuscitators cover the following aspects:
- ECG interpretation;
- Basic echocardiography and thorax ultrasound execution in urgency/emergency situations and as monitoring tool;
- Perioperative management of cardiopathic patients in non-cardiac surgery;
- Management of the main cardiac emergencies that may require the intervention of a resuscitator;
- Cardiac arrhythmia diagnosis and management;
- Hemodynamic in the ICU.
The course will include stages, project works and a final exam with presentation of a research paper.
The Postgraduate Course in Cardiology for Anaesthesiologist-Resuscitators is intended for anaesthesiologist-resuscitators and increases their independence and professional level in three different areas: diagnostic instruments (ECG and echocardiography), Cardiology during Anaesthesia, Cardiology during Urgent/Emergency Situations and in the ICU.
The Postgraduate Course in Cardiology for Anaesthesiologist-Resuscitators provides specific training on:
- Normal and pathological ECG
- ECG: main pathologies
- ECG: decision-making models for anaesthesiologist-resuscitators
- Ultrasound physics and ultrasound image formation
- Transthoracic echocardiography
- Transoesophageal echocardiography
- Cardiac chamber assessment
- Valves assessment
- Pericardium assessment
“Dynamic ecosystem” approach to hemodynamic in the critical area
- Hypovolemia and fluid responsiveness
- Echocardiography in specific clinical settings
- Perioperative evaluation of cardiopathic patients who have to undergo non-cardiac surgery
- Cardiopathies and anaesthesia
Perioperative management of anti-aggregating and anti-coagulating treatments
- Perioperative management of pacemakers and other devices
- Main cardiac urgencies/emergencies
- Arrhythmia diagnosis and management
HEMODYNAMICS IN THE ICU
- Hemodynamic monitoring in the ICU
The general merit ranking for the a.y. 2023/24 will be published here according to the timing set by the Call.
Yes, every student will choose a topic they want to elaborate on, and will draft a final Master’s research paper individually, with the help of an advisor professor identified by the University Department, which will be presented in September 2024 before a Committee.
Yes, a Public Institution can enrol one of its employees. In this case, please contact the Course’s Administrative Office to know more about the procedure to follow and finalize the enrolment.
The course units include a theoretical section (with video-lessons that can be taken on the dedicated Moodle space, asynchronously), and a hands-on section, held once a month, on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and afternoon, at the UOC of Anaesthesia and Resuscitation and at the UOC of Cardiology of the ULSS 3 Venice, Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo, Castello 6777, Venice.
