The Cardiac Anesthesiology Website

The Cardiac Anesthesiology website provides interactive animated modules illustrating key concepts covered in the Cardiac Anesthesia Fellows Manual. These modules contain a minimum of text and emphasize interactive animated graphics to convey principles. They provide teaching aids for lectures and small group sessions, but are sufficiently contained to make them suitable for self-study. Publishing these modules freely on the Internet provides teaching resources for educators and students in the field of cardiac anesthesia around the world.

The Cardiac Anesthesia Fellows Manual, authored by Dr. Annette Vegas and colleagues in the Department of Anesthesia, covers the practice of cardiac anesthesia and postoperative care in the cardiovascular ICU. It provides guidelines and protocols for the delivery of care as practiced at Toronto General Hospital. It is a essential resource for the Fellows in Cardiac Anesthesia and Cardiovascular Surgery.
