In 2016, demand for the presence of cardiothoracic anesthesiologists outside of the cardiac operating rooms continues to expand. This article is the second in this annual series to review relevant contributions in postoperative cardiac critical care that may impact the cardiac anesthesiologist. We explore the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), management of postoperative atrial fibrillation, coagulopathy, respiratory failure, and role of quality in cardiac surgery.
