Management Of CCHC: Cardiac

In this course core cardiac skills required to practice in the critical care unit will be taught such as arrhythmia and 12 Lead interpretation, pacemakers and hemodynamic monitoring. In addition, care of the cardiac patient experiencing a myocardial infarction with associated pharmacology, lab and diagnostics will be explored. Advanced cardiac topics such as intra-aortic balloon therapy, percutaneous cardiac interventions (PCI) and cardiac tamponade will be discussed. Case studies and interactive learning activities will assist the learner in achieving competency of these essential skills.
