Program 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.

 
Program Learning Outcomes
This program prepares the learner to:
  1. Apply physiological concepts to your understanding of cardiovascular drug therapy.
  2. Utilize physical assessment skills to evaluate a patient’s cardiovascular status.
  3. Utilize the 12-Lead ECG to evaluate patients with chest pain and acute coronary syndrome.
  4. Utilize the bedside cardiac monitor to evaluate arrhythmias and to assess the ST segment and the QT interval.
  5. Discuss management of patients with heart failure, acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation.
