The Heart in Detail is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 09, 2019 at Long Island Marriott, Uniondale, New York, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 Contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Physician Assistants • Cardiovascular Technicians Course Description: Did you ever wonder why your patient with an inferior MI has bradycardias or a patient with heart failure is on an ACE inhibitor? Or become confused about ejection fractions, let alone hemodynamics? If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about which blood vessel perfuses what part of the heart, or why they have an arrhythmia, or how their heart failure is causing their kidney problems, then you need to join Cathy Lockett, RN, MHA, BSN, CCRN-K, a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable. Designed with the bedside clinician in mind, this seminar is appropriate for all healthcare professionals wanting to improve their assessment skills, build a firm foundation of cardiac anatomy and physiology and apply these skills in daily patient care. Understanding these essential concepts will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately! Cathy’s teaching style allows for an informal interactive discussion. You will leave with a systematic approach to interpreting EKGs, an understanding of common cardiac pathologies, and a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in patient care. Objectives: • Utilize the “Thumb Technique” to determine the ventricular axis of the heart. • Review the more common cardiac arrhythmias and discuss the causes. • Relate coronary artery perfusion to cardiac musculature and the conduction system. • Interpret ischemia, injury, and infarction patterns on a 12-Lead EKG, 15-lead, and right-sided EKG. • Integrate new evidence-based guidelines to treat Acute Coronary Syndrome. • Explain the process of valvular dysfunction and state treatments for aortic and mitral valve disease. • State the evidence-based treatments to include medications and invasive procedures for chronic heart failure.
The Aging Brain: Assessments, Treatments & Interventions for Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias - Uniondale

The Aging Brain: Assessments, Treatments & Interventions for Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 12, 2019 at Long Island Marriott, Uniondale, New York, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Occupational Therapists • Physical Therapists • Nurses • Speech-Language Pathologists • Counselors • Nursing Home Administrators • Assisted Living Facility Administrators • Long Term/Acute Care Professionals • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists Course Description: Individuals with dementia interact with a variety of professionals including nursing staff, psychologists, counselors, social workers, OTs, PTs, SLPs, home health aides, adult day center staff, and first responders. But whatever your profession, proper skills and understanding of the disease is needed to work with this population. Without the appropriate training, safety risks grow and opportunities to improve care and quality of life are missed. This essential training program will provide you with the tools, strategies, and practices you need to best serve patients facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In just one day you’ll learn how you can better assess for and differentiate between different types of dementias, overcome the communication issues that can obstruct quality care, work more collaboratively with family and caregivers, maximize daily functioning, and safely and effectively intervene when difficult behaviors arise. Objectives: • Analyze the impact of dementia on brain structure and function, and determine the difference between “normal forgetfulness” and cognitive impairment. • Differentiate dementias from one another by identifying manifestations of each type. • Articulate differences between the Folstein Mini-Mental Status examination and SLUMS and effectively utilize them as screening measure tools for cognitive impairment and dementia. • Employ adaptable behavioral interventions that can provide patients with individualized care and promote more effective participation in therapy. • Investigate the concept of caregiver guilt and its implications for the client, clinicians, and those caring for older adults with dementia. • Correlate patients’ strengths and limitations to potential therapeutic approaches when developing treatment plans for older adults with dementia.
Feb 26, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.33 | USD $249.99 | Uniondale, New York
Cardiac and Respiratory Complexities: Quickly Differentiate to Take Rapid Action is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 26, 2020 at Long Island Marriott, Uniondale, New York, United States Of America. This CE Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.33 contact hours. Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Course Description: You are assessing the patient who just returned from endoscopy following a foreign body removal. The patient is complaining of his throat itching. On assessment, his vital signs are normal, but he appears anxious. Is this normal following the procedure? Do you put him on a cardiac monitor? Should you call a rapid response? We have all been faced with the clinical dilemma when our patient has rapidly progressing dyspnea, tachypnea, fever, cough, and chest pain. What is happening? Distinguishing between heart failure, pneumonia, and ARDS can be difficult. Did you know that COPD could mask a pulmonary embolism? When your patient is wheezing, do you make the assumption it is asthma? Or could the presentation be caused by heart failure or an allergic reaction? Attending this conference will provide you with the confidence to recognize early and identify appropriate interventions to prevent further deterioration. We will discuss when non-invasive ventilation devices should - and should not - be used. If you are still struggling with blood gases, don't let blood gases intimidate you! Learn quick and easy ways to interpret ABG results. You will learn from actual patient stories to illustrate the complexities and co-morbidities of cardiac and respiratory diagnoses. Course Objectives: • Review the nursing assessment for patients with airway or ventilatory problems. • Describe the pathophysiologic changes that occur causing the signs and symptoms associated with airway or ventilatory problems. • Select appropriate interventions for airway or ventilatory problems. • Differentiate between ventilator modes and the use of NPPV. • Evaluate appropriate treatment strategies for high-risk ECG findings. • Plan for emerging treatments in heart failure. • Analyze management options for acute coronary syndromes. • Describe the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of inflammatory cardiac disease.
