    Start with a basic review of normal anatomy, then throughout the presentation, cardiac murmur recordings are utilized for actual audible learning of assessment findings. Case study examples are provided for additional clinical scenarios and opportunities to practice listening, allowing for building an enhanced skill level. | 1.50 credits (0.00 pharmacology) | $37.50

  • Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapeutics Update: Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

    Includes Credits

    This session will discuss key differences in the pharmacologic profiles of various oral chronic anticoagulation agents that influence treatment selection for individual patients with atrial fibrillation who are at risk of stroke. | 1.50 credits (1.50 pharmacology) | $37.50

  • Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapeutics Update: Chronic Heart Failure and Hypertension

    Includes Credits

    This first part of the session will outline methods of titrating optimal therapy using the most appropriate pharmacologic agents for treating adults with reduced ejection fraction. The second half of the session discusses the use of at least 6 classes of medications to treat hypertension (HTN) in adults, including general principles for dosing, titration, and monitoring for side effects over time. | 1.50 credits (1.50 pharmacology) | $37.50

  • The Latest in Treating Hypertension

    Includes Credits

    What are the latest guidelines? How can you put them to work for your patients? In 2017 AHA Guidelines had tweaked the treatment of hypertension once again. It is important to keep abreast of the latest guidelines in caring for a patient with HTN. Looking at different classes, we will identify different populations and the most appropriate regimen. Also, not forgetting the importance of lifestyle modification, we will explore case studies to see what the most potent options are in the treatment of hypertension. | 1.00 credits (0.75 pharmacology) | $25
