Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have become the leading cause of mortality in India. Despite wide heterogeneity in the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors across different regions, CVD has emerged as the leading cause of death in all parts of India. There has been a 4-fold rise of CVD prevalence in India in the past 40 years. This has led to the rise in cardiac interventions in the form of surgeries. Cardiac surgery is a complex field of medicine with significant morbidity and mortality. Quality anaesthetic care with specific attention to detail can greatly enhance patient safety and outcome. Cardiovascular anaesthesia, having a distinct and unique body of knowledge within anesthesiology, will lead ways to explore opportunities for clinical integration with partners in medicine and surgery.

The goal of this course is to train and mentor cardiac anaesthetists to excel clinically and enhance their technical skills.
