Cardiac Thoracic Vascular and Perfusion (CTVP) SIG

Heart, lung and vascular anaesthesia and extra corporeal life support is a dynamic and challenging field. It presents complex patient problems that require fully integrated team care. The need for scientific understanding to support our practice continues to grow and innovative procedural solutions are part of our daily work.

The CTVP SIG promotes excellence in education, research, and leadership in the field through the collaborative efforts of our members. We welcome all as members, who share a dedication to advancing our discipline.
