Course Description

This program provides a clinically applicable review of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, cardiac assessment, cardiovascular pharmacology and interventions based on current guidelines for the most common cardiac disorders seen in clinical practice. Content includes a review of cardiac physiology that can be applied in daily practice, the physiological basis for cardiovascular drug therapy and the pathophysiology, diagnosis and guideline-based treatment strategies for heart failure, acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation. Clinically useful tips on noninvasive assessment techniques and 12-Lead ECG interpretation can be applied in any clinical setting where cardiac patients receive care. Evidence-based practice standards for bedside cardiac monitoring for arrhythmia identification, ST-segment monitoring and QT interval monitoring provide a foundation for the delivery of high-quality patient care in any monitored setting. Take your knowledge of cardiovascular patient care to a higher level and improve outcomes for your patients.
