Antonio M. Calafiore, MD; Randas Batista, MD; Tomas A. Salerno, MD
This program is designed for cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons . A live surgical procedure is shown and leading cardiologists and surgeons discuss recent progress in the battle against heart disease.
Pre-Hospital Care for the Cardiac Patient
Michael Sayre, MD; Alan Mister, RN, EMT-P; Anthony Kramer, RN, BSN, EMT-P; Ronald Crafton, MD
Prehospital 12 lead electrocardiography, history and physical exam of chest pain patient, chest pain management in field and defribillation skills.
Innovations in Cardiac Surgery: Partial Left Ventriculectomy & the Use of LVADs
Randas Batista, MD; O.H. Frazier, MD; Tomas A. Salerno, MD
This program is designed for cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons involved in the care of patients with end-stage heart disease. This program features leading cardiologists and surgeons who will explore innovative approaches for dealing with patients with severe heart disease. The tape also includes footage from actual surgical procedures with step by step narration.
Current Perspectives in Management of Heart Failure: Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction
Denise Drummond Hayes, MSN, RN, CCRN
Differentiate between heart failure secondary to left-ventricular systolic dysfunction and heart failure secondary to left-ventricular diastolic dysfunction; Describe the initial pharmacologic management for patients with heart failure in the setting of reduced left-ventricular systolic function; Discuss current AHCPR recommendations for patient and family education and counseling in reference to left - ventricular systolic dysfunction.
IV Therapy: Central Vascular Catheter
Virginia Strootman, RN - Marijane Barbone, RN - Sue Masoorli, RN
The objectives of this program are to distinguish the three types of central vascular access devices, explain implementation of the appropriate nursing management of central vascular access devices, and articulate the rationale for central vascular access device nursing procedures. Specific topics include: Non-Tunneled Catheters; Tunneled Catheters; Implanted Ports
Improving Cardiovascular Risk
Robert B. Supernaw, PharmD; Mary J. Ferrill, PharmD; Sian Carr-Lopez, PharmD

Initial Assessment, Diagnosis & Management of the Acute Myocardial Infarction Patient
Susan Simmons Holcomb, RN, MN, CCRN; Jan George, RN, BSN, CCRN; Mary Dugan Saxon, RN, MSN, CCRN
Identify typical and atypical patterns of chest pain in the acute myocardial infarction patient; Identify atpical heart rate and blood pressure presentations presenting with anterior wall vs. inferior wall myocardial infarction; Compare differences in presentation in patients with myocardial infarction who are male, young, female, elderly, and/or diabetic; State criteria for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction vs. 12-lead EKG; Identify the locations of common myocardial infarctions on the 12-lead EKG. Identify lab data currently being used to diagnose acute myocardial infarction and list immediate interventions for the patient. Identify situations in which interventional therapy may be the treatment of choice.
Terry Lea, RN, BSN; Sabrina Bodin, RN, BSN; Anna Banford, RN
Identify the location and placement of the12 EKG leads. Explain the difference in the 12 leads and understand the advantage of using a 12 lead EKG vs. the difference between facing and opposite leads. Relate EKG changes to Patient Care. Describe the basic to advanced EKG interpretation.
Advanced Cardiac Life Support
Susan Holcombe, RN, CCRN, MN; Marlene Link, RN; Jan George, RN
Be able to assess patient before and after inventional treament; know the benefits of an endotracheal tube for airway control rather that bag/valve/mask or mask or mouth to mouth; list potential enhancers of transthoracic resistance; know the proper use of the automated-external defibrillator; learn the drugs and dosage for each algorithm, endotracheal tube, calculate continuous infusions, differentiate stable/unstable symptoms.
Women & Heart Disease
Susan Simmons Holcomb, RN, MN, CCRN; Marlene Link, RN, MN; Jan George, RN, BSN, CCRN
Identify fixed versus modifiable risk for women who develop heart disease; State the differences between men and women undergoing diagnostic procedures such as exercise stress tests; List the differences in the outcomes of women vs. men under interventional cardiology procedures. Compare the presentation of signs and symptoms between men and women presenting to the Emergency Department with Ischemic-type chest pain; Identify differences between treatment modalities for men and women presenting to the Emergency Department with Ischemic-type chest pain.
