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.
