Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants and even physicians have told me that they are apprehensive to prescribe, administer or send a patient for a cardiac intervention or diagnostic test due to a lack of confidence and up-to-date knowledge. I understand the challenge…as there is a lot to understand when making these critical patient decisions.
I’m Dr. Paul Langlois, APN, PhD, CCRN, CCNS, a critical care clinical specialist in the surgical, medical, neurologic, burn, CCU and trauma ICUs of Cook County Hospital, Chicago. Throughout my career I have assisted countless healthcare providers overcome fears associated with ordering and interpreting cardiac tests. If a test or intervention were ordered inadvertently, we may not get the information we need to make informed decisions or worse….we could cause potentially dire patient consequences.
During this comprehensive training event, you can expect to learn:
Red flags that intensive cardiac testing is required
Radiology options as an assessment AND intervention
Implications of overlooked genetic cardiac tests
Lifesaving cardiac therapeutics – including the PROMeNADe study
Up to date guidelines for cardiac interventions
The impact of common medications on cardiac testing
But that’s not all! I will be sharing some of my unforgettable, real-world case studies after each major section to reinforce your learning. Together we will evaluate laboratory data, ECG results, ECHO cardiograms, physical assessment findings and clinical pearls to interpret the diagnostic interventions. The only thing that is missing during this event is the antiseptic smell of the hospital…
