Abstract

The Society for the Advancement of Transplant Anesthesia (SATA) is dedicated to improving patient care in all facets of transplant anesthesia. The anesthesia fellowship training recommendations for thoracic transplantation (heart and lungs) and part of the abdominal organ transplantation (liver) have been presented in previous publications. The SATA Fellowship Committee has completed the remaining component of abdominal transplant anesthesia (kidney/pancreas) and has assembled core competencies and milestones derived from expert consensus to guide the education and overall preparation of trainees providing care for kidney/pancreas transplant recipients. These recommendations provide a comprehensive approach to pre-operative evaluation, vascular access procedures, advanced hemodynamic monitoring, assessment of coagulation and metabolic abnormalities, operative techniques, and post-operative pain control. As such, this document supplements the current liver/hepatic transplant anesthesia fellowship training programs to include all aspects of “Abdominal Organ Transplant Anesthesia” recommended knowledge.
