2-Day : All Things Cardiac is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held during Jan 15 - 16, 2018 at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Telemetry Technicians, Cardiovascular Technology Professionals. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.60 contact hours.
Course Description :
Cardiac patients can present stable, unstable, or having life-threatening symptoms. Early differentiation is an essential step to establish diagnoses and begin appropriate treatment. Physical assessment skills, understanding the cardiac monitor and being able to quickly interpret the EKG are imperative to rule out life-threatening scenarios.
Attend this comprehensive program and gain the skills and knowledge you need to manage any situation. Drawing on over 20 years of cardiac and critical care experience, Cyndi Zarbano will teach you the latest evidence-based approaches to evaluating and treating patients with cardiac problems. Through interactive discussion and hands-on learning, you will have the opportunity to enhance your assessment skills, improve your ability to interpret the EKG, analyze cardiac care case scenarios and explore the latest in treatment techniques. You will leave with a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in cardiac care.
Course Objectives are :
Day One :
• Employ proper technique for measuring jugular vein distention (JVD).
• Contrast systolic and diastolic murmurs by where they fall in the S1/S2 cardiac cycle.
• List 3 benefits of beta blockers in a patient with coronary artery disease.
• Identify benefits for patients using blood thinners in atrial fibrillation that is not related to valve dysfunction.
• Differentiate findings on the 12-lead EKG to determine if a patient has axis deviation and what health care issues that may identify.
• Evaluate findings in common cardiac labs, such as CKMB, Troponin, BNP/Pro-BNP levels.
• Recognize 2 tools of recognition and 4 rapid interventions for patients experiencing Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).
Day Two :
• Explain the difference between systolic and diastolic heart failure using a simple hand gesture to recognize ventricular dysfunction for each.
• Stage heart failure using the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology tool and identify intervention goals for each stage.
• Compare and contrast the use of the Impella device and intra-aortic balloon pumps in severe cardiac impairment.
• Learn a simple monitoring technique to help differentiate if the patient is having an atrial dysrhythmia or not.
• Identify EKG clues to patients having aberrant pathways.
• Discuss Takotsubo as a type of dilated cardiomyopathy and state interventions to bridge that diagnosis to a return of normal ventricular function.
• Recognize changes in Hypothermia Protocol and lessons that have been learned through the years to achieve better outcomes.
