Pediatric Advanced Cardio Life Support (PALS) Renewal Course is organized by HeartShare Training Services Inc and will be held on Jan 23, 2020 at HeartShare Northbay, Burlingame, California, United States of America. Course Length: 6 Hours Card Issued: American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Cardio Life Support Course Completion Card Card Term: 2 years Course Overview: The goal of the Pediatric Advanced Life Support course is to provide the participant with (1) information needed to recognize infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest; (2) information and strategies needed to prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children; and (3) the cognitive and psychomotor skills needed to resuscitate and stabilize infants and children in respiratory failure, shock or cardiopulmonary arrest. BOOK SOLD SEPARATELY. The PALS Course is designed to teach healthcare providers the knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. On the day of class, sign-in begins 30 minutes before the scheduled class time. Students are expected to attend and participate in the entire course. Don’t forget to bring your book, your test score, and a photo ID. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Advanced Cardio Life Support (ACLS) Renewal Course is organized by HeartShare Training Services Inc and will be held on Jan 24, 2020 at HeartShare Northbay - Burlingame, Burlingame, California, United States of America. Course Length: 6 Hours Card Issued: American Heart Association Advanced Cardio Life Support Course Completion Card Card Term: 2 years Course Overview: This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes. This course presents the skills and didactic information needed to handle a cardiac arrest, events that may lead to a cardiac arrest, and events that follow a cardiac arrest. The core of this course is the evaluation and management of the first 10 minutes of a witnessed, adult, ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. Other essentials of the course are contained in the 10 core ACLS cases: respiratory arrest, pulseless ventricular / ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT) treated with an AED, VF/VT refractory to initial defibrillation, pulseless electrical activity, asystole, acute coronary syndromes, bradycardia, stable tachycardia, unstable tachycardia, acute ischemic stroke and ROSC. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Comprehensive Treatment of the Hip: From the Spine to the Foot is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Feb 15 - 16, 2020 at More Physical Therapy, Burlingame, California, United States of America. Course Description: This seminar will allow the clinician to treat the hip in an integrative and comprehensive way. It is unique in that it includes MET and mobilizations of the spine, pelvis, hip/knee and ankle/foot regions. It also teaches treatment, through myofascial release, of all muscles that directly and indirectly influence / impact the hip and its function. At the completion of this course, the clinician will be able to treat most any hip diagnosis with confidence and comprehensiveness – and achieve immediate improved functional results with their patients. Goals of this Course: • Each participant will have a thorough review and in-depth understanding of Lower Quadrant anatomy, biomechanics and methods of intervention. • Each participant will have the skills to immediately apply the methods learned in this course at the clinical level for the purpose of reducing stress in the hip and objectively confirm improved function of the hip complex. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Correctly describe the normal and abnormal biomechanics of at least 5 specific joints involving the lower extremities and pelvis. • Correctly describe the neurophysiological mechanism behind muscle energy technique (MET). • Correctly demonstrate 2 lumbo-pelvic, 2 hip and 3 lower extremity joint mobilizations. • Correctly demonstrate at least 4 components in a systematic approach and treatment progression of the hip complex. • Correctly state 8 key anatomical structures of the lower quadrant (lumbo-pelvic, hip, knee, ankle/foot) and their application to joint mechanics, movement and dysfunction. • State the 8 key treatment principles for joint mobilizations and 6 treatment principles for MFR (Myofascial Release). • Independently discuss 4 treatment concepts for MFR of the lower quadrant. • Correctly demonstrate 8 key treatment techniques for joint mobilizations to decrease stress on the hip. • Correctly instruct a person in 5 exercises to improve strength, stability and mobility of the lower quadrant. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Overhead Athlete: A Comprehensive Treatment Approach is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Oct 17 - 18, 2020 at More Physical Therapy, Burlingame, California, United States of America. Accreditation: This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course. Course Description: Overhead athletes of all ages are capable of accelerating their upper extremity to speeds that routinely exceed 7000 degrees/second. The role of and interaction between the joints, tissues, and segments involved in this process is very complex, but often results in injuries to the shoulder and elbow. This course will examine common areas of dysfunction in the overhead athlete in the context of an understandable biomechanical framework that addresses the entire kinetic chain. Treatment approaches will emerge from an enhanced understanding of this framework and will be discussed in terms manual techniques and appropriate treatment progression. Clarification and reinforcement of course objectives will be provided through 50% lecture/discussion, visual aids (pictures/video), case examples, demonstration, and lab. Course Objectives At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Recognize 3 biomechanical characteristics that contribute to increased injury risk in the arm of the overhead athlete. • Given a mechanical fault in the performance of the overhead sports movement, provide 2 biomechanical contributors to the mechanical fault. • Recognize 3 sociocultural factors that contribute to the development of chronic/overuse injuries in the overhead athlete • Identify 3 postural characteristics common in the presentation of the overhead athlete. • Given a specific joint/tissue dysfunction, provide 2 biomechanical contributors and 2 biomechanical consequences for the respective sport. • Define the role of 3 different core muscles in the transfer of energy from the lower extremity to the upper extremity. • Define the role of 3 different scapular muscles in the transfer of energy from the trunk to the arm. • Correctly identify and perform mobilization/release of 3 scapular muscles. • Correctly identify and perform mobilization/release of 3 trunk and/or hip muscles. • Properly execute a functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk. • Identify a dysfunctional movement pattern during functional movement assessment. • Develop 2 motor retraining exercises that addresses dysfunctional movements identified during your movement/manual assessment. • Develop 2 dynamic exercises that would reinforce motor retraining Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
