Congratulations to our fellows at the SCA/ICCVA 2015 Conference!

We congratulate four of our very own cardiothoracic anesthesia fellows: Rob Covington, Jonathan Hadaway, Jason Drennan, and Daniel Hernandez for presenting their research projects at the SCA/ICCVA 2015 Conference.

The 37th Annual Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologist (SCA) workshop hosted the 15th International Congress of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia (ICCVA) Conference in Washington, DC, at the Washington Marriott Marquis from April 11-15, 2015. Four of our current and previous cardiothoracic anesthesia fellows presented their research projects at the conference.

Fellowship graduate from last year, Rob Covington, presented “Moderate correlation and fair agreement comparing transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) vs. transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) modalities in left atrial (LA) and left ventricular end diastolic diameter (LVED) measurement” (R Covington, T Vasilopoulos and YG Peng).

Current cardiothoracic fellow, Jonathan Hadaway, presented “Low agreement between TTE and TTE on evaluation of less than severe mitral regurgitation” (J Hadaway, T Vasilopoulos and YG Peng).

Current Cardiothoracic fellow, Jason Drennan, presented “TEE and TTE has a low agreement when assessing moderate RV and LV systolic dysfunction” (J Drennan, T Vasilopoulos and YG Peng).

Current cardiothoracic fellow, Daniel Hernandez, presented on the effects of modified ultrafiltration on vancomycin levels after cardiopulmonary bypass.
