Event Overview
Welcome message:

Did you ever wonder why your patient with a myocardial infarction will have dyspnea?

Or have a hard time explaining how beta-blockers work?

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 Karen M. Marzlin/, 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. Karen's teaching style allows for an informal interactive discussion. You will leave with a systematic approach to interpreting ECGs, an understanding of common cardiac pathologies, and a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in patient care.


Describe the basic electrophysiology of the heart: Electrical versus mechanical function.

Utilize the "Thumbs Technique" to determine the ventricular axis of the heart.

Review the more common cardiac arrhythmias and discuss the causes.

Define hemodynamic principles in the body.

Relate coronary artery perfusion to cardiac musculature and the conduction system.

Interpret ischemia, injury, and infarction patterns on a 12-lead ECG, 15-lead, and right-sided ECG.

Integrate new evidenced-based guidelines to treat Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Explain the process of valvular dysfunction and state treatments for aortic and mitral valve disease.

Describe heart failure and relate physical assessment findings to hemodynamic parameters in a patient with decompensated heart failure.

State the evidenced-based treatments to include medications and invasive procedures for chronic and acute heart failure.

Differentiate dilated from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Discuss pericarditis to include causes, ECG changes and treatment modalities.
