The Middle East Cardiac Anesthesia Update 2018 aims to present the current evidence based approach to managing anesthesia for cardiac surgical patients. It will feature discussions on advances in cardiac anesthesiology, cardiopulmonary bypass, emerging technology, heart transplant and cardiac ICU.

The conference faculty is composed of distinguished cardiothoracic anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons as well as cardiologists from the United States, Europe, as well as our own experts from Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and Cleveland Clinic, Ohio.

We look forward to an audience of 250 cardiothoracic anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons, perfusionists and nurses.
