Echo on Marco Island: Case-Based Approach is organized by Mayo Clinic and will be held from Dec 16 - 19, 2019 at JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, Marco Island, Florida, United States of America. Intended Audience: This course is intended for adult and congenital cardiologists, cardiology fellows, and cardiac sonographers who have basic experience and knowledge in echocardiography. This course is also intended for other medical specialists, internists, and anesthesiologists working to further their experience in clinical application of echocardiography. Credits: AMA PRA Category 1™ - 20.0 MOC - 20.0 Course Description: The program seeks to address competence in using multiple echocardiographic techniques in assessment of cardiac structure and function in adult acquired or congenital heart disease. This will include concise, limited didactic lectures with major emphasis on a series of illustrative cases which will include audience response and discussion presented by echocardiography specialists which would lead to enhanced patient management. Workshops will be held to demonstrate the techniques for acquiring the echocardiographic data, especially with respect to new contemporary techniques such as strain imaging. To reinforce the knowledge gained from the course and ensure lasting value to each attendee’s practice, Mayo Clinic provides access to all course presentations with voice-over recordings after the completion of the course. Course Learning Objectives: • Demonstrate the application of Doppler principles to assessing hemodynamics including valvular heart disease • Demonstrate use of echocardiography to assess prosthetic valves • Demonstrate and interpret diastolic echocardiographic measurements • Define advantages of stress echocardiography and use of contrast • Apply echocardiographic principles in assessment of congestive heart failure • Identify echocardiographic features of common congenital heart abnormalities • Define the role of echo in the interventional cardiology practice • Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of new imaging techniques including 3-D and strain Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

S4 - Functional Analysis & Management of Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Dec 16 - 17, 2019 at St Augustine, Florida, United States of America. Hours: 16 or 1.6 CEUs (includes 1 online hour) or 2 graduate credits Prerequisite: S1; Intro S4 Webinar is included with S4 Who Attends: Physical Therapists Description: A biomechanical and neurophysiological approach to the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex is presented. Emphasis is placed on the functional relations within this region so as to understand pelvic girdle dysfunction. Research documentation of the anatomical and mechanical roles of the related structures is provided. Topic areas include: functional anatomy, biomechanics of the sacroiliac and pubic joints, muscular and ligament influences, select pathologies, effects of the pregnancy, labor and delivery as well as dysfunction in the form of pathomechanics and pathophysiology. Laboratory experience involves the demonstration and practice of clinical evaluation methods for assessing dysfunction in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. The evaluation process approaches the problem from both joint and muscular standpoints. Treatment of pelvic dysfunction is also multi-dimensional and therefore soft tissue and joint mobilization is offered. In addition, time is provided for an introduction to the concepts and application of techniques such as positional release, respiratory assist mobilization and muscle energy. Patient education strategies integrating therapeutic exercise with manual interventions will be presented. Methods for self mobilization and stabilization are demonstrated. Additional suggestions relating to bracing, injection or ADL may also be included in management. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the attendee should be able to: • Demonstrate knowledge as well as clinical understanding of the functional anatomy in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Practically relate the biomechanics of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex to patient evaluation and treatment • Possess knowledge of pelvic dysfunction with respect to altered joint mechanics and abnormal neuromuscular behavior • Identify the potential relationship between pain and dysfunction with consideration of the biomechanical interdependency exhibited within the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Be able to treat pelvic girdle dysfunction using various manual therapy strategies such as myofascial release, respiratory assist mobilization, joint mobilization, and neuromuscular therapy (i.e. muscle energy, PNF) • Integrate home instruction strategies with manual intervention to facilitate improvement in pelvic girdle function and assist in pain relief • Be stimulated to pursue additional reading, course work or research in the pelvic girdle system
