The Cardiovascular and Thoracic (CVT) Section is the largest and one of the oldest sections of the CAS, founded in 1992. The section focuses its agenda and programs on cardiac, cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia. The section believes that anesthesia is constantly changing, as are cardiac anesthesia patients and the health care system as a whole. Cardiac anesthesia is recognized as an area of focused competence by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
