Conference Summary

Cardiovascular Emergencies Conference: Beyond A-B-C and ACLS is organized by American Medical Seminars (AMS) and will be held from Oct 22 - 26, 2018 at The Westin Sarasota, Sarasota, Florida, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 20.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

The unique structure of this Cardiovascular Emergencies Medical Conference includes classes in advanced ECG, tachycardia, cardiac arrest and more from 8:00 am to 12:15 pm each day.

Learning Objectives :
Day 1:
Advanced ECG Workshop: Classic, Confusing, and Confounding Patterns. (4 Hour Workshop).

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Identify subtle ECG findings in the ACS patient that predict an increased risk of morbidity and mortality.
• Distinguish between some common mimics of ACS vs findings of true ACS on the ECG.
• Identify findings in bundle branch block that help in the diagnosis of ACS.

Day 2:
ECG Mimics of Cardiac Ischemia.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Describe a simple method of distinguishing between STEMI vs. acute pericarditis.
• Distinguish between hyperkalemia and STEMI based on axis changes.
• Describe a T-wave finding in PE that mimics cardiac ischemia.

Electrocardiography of Syncope.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• List the deadly conditions which must be identified on ECG in the post-syncope patient.
• Describe two congenital conditions that predict deadly arrhythmias in the post-syncope patient.
• Identify two conditions that predict deadly arrhythmias based on an assessment of the ECG intervals.

Cases That Went Bad: Learn From Our Mistakes!
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Identify an ECG abnormality that predicts intracranial hemorrhage.
• Identify a dangerous condition based on a voltage which is often misdiagnosed as ACS or PE.
• Identify an electrocardiographic T-wave abnormality that predicts significant coronary artery disease.

Day 3:
Advanced ECG Workshop: Tough Dysrhythmias Made Easy! (4 Hour Workshop)
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Describe a simple series of steps to make the diagnosis of tachydysrhythmias.
• Distinguish between the various types of bradydysrhythmias and AV blocks.
• Describe the treatment protocols for stable and unstable dysrhythmias.

Day 4:
Wide-Complex Tachycardias: Myths and Pitfalls.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Identify difficulties in distinguishing amongst various types of wide complex tachycardias.
• Describe pitfalls in the diagnosis and treatment of WPW-related tachydysrhythmias.
• List the shortcomings associated with the use of amiodarone in managing patients with wide complex tachycardias.

STEMI and NSTE-ACS: Recent Literature Updates.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• List newer ECG criteria that warrant acute reperfusion therapy.
• Describe the newest diagnostic strategies for ACS.
• Describe the updated treatment protocols ACS.

Low-Risk Chest Pain: A 2018 Approach.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Describe some common pearls and pitfalls that occur in the diagnosis of ACS.
• Review the most common accelerated diagnostic protocols for evaluating patients with suspected ACS.
• Describe a rational approach to the modern-day evaluation of low risk chest pain.

“Remember That Patient You Saw Last Night?” Case Reviews in Missed ACS.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• List high-risk groups that are associated with missed ACS.
• Discuss the shortcomings of stress testing and cardiac catheterization.
• Discuss the limitations of current troponin testing.

Day 5:
Winning at Failure: Optimal Management of Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Describe the limitations of morphine and furosemide in the management of cardiogenic pulmonary edema.
• Identify medications available for rapid preload reduction and afterload reduction.
• Discuss the use of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation.

Syncope: Simplifying a High-Risk Condition.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• List the high-risk features in the history and physical examination that predict poor short-term outcomes.
• Describe a cost-effective workup for patients presenting after syncope.
• Distinguish between syncope and seizures.

Cooling the Fire: Modern Management of Cardiac Arrest.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• List newest updates in Basic Life Support guidelines.
• List the newest recommendations in Advanced Life Support guidelines.
• Describe current and future trends in the management of cardiac arrest and post-arrest care.

10 Things You Must Consider in the Crashing Patient: Beyond A-B-C and ACLS.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
• Describe some pitfalls associated with commonly-used resuscitation techniques.
• Identify how basic bedside ultrasonography can help in the diagnosis and treatment of “crashing” patients.
• Discuss some of the new concepts in the recent AHA guidelines that can help…and hinder the chance of survival in “crashing” patients.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
