The overall goal of the activities of this continuing medical education (CME) program is to enhance learners’ knowledge and their competency to perform safe arterial access and vascular closure.  Interventional devices have undergone significant evolution and there are several techniques available that have shown a reduction in vascular complications following percutaneous cardiac procedures. Given the need for physicians and other health care providers to have adequate training in all aspects of vascular access, this 1.5-day course will intensively cover all aspects of arterial access with an emphasis on best practices designed to improve the safety of percutaneous cardiac and peripheral procedures.
