Cardiology Symposium: Cardiovascular Care for the Non-cardiologist

Greenville, SC US
January 27, 2018

Overview

The purpose of this educational activity is to update the primary care community on the latest advances in cardiovascular care. Through a combination of lectures, panel discussion and EP care broadcast, participants will be better equipped to evaluate patients with cardiac disease and assess treatment options.

Target Audience

  • Primary Care Physicians

  • Family/Internal Medicine Physicians

  • Nurse Practitioners

  • Physician Assistants

  • Nurses

  • EMS

Learning Objectives

  • Identify appropriate candidates for anticoagulation and demonstrate enhanced knowledge of selection of antiarrhythmic therapy.
  • Demonstrate how pulmonary vein isolation is performed and its role in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Identify procedure risks and long-term benefits.
  • Identify patients who may benefit from new device and catheter-based therapies.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of risk management, medical therapy and intervention for peripheral artery disease.
  • Define optimal treatment strategies for severe hypertension and hypotension.
  • Identify maternal cardiovascular disease (CVD) encountered during pregnancy and evaluate treatment strategies to manage expecting mothers with CVD during pregnancy as a multidisciplinary team.
  • Describe the epidemiology of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and the current strategies for management.
  • Determine the most appropriate stress testing modality for patients and describe how to document that decision.
  • Recognize the increasing role of primary care on the cardiology team and employ best use of technology in cardiovascular patient care.
  • Identify initial treatment and referral strategies for patients presenting in the office with chest pain.
  • Describe when cardiology pre-op clearance is needed and how to order it.

From 1979 to 1986, Dr. Prystowsky was a full-time faculty member at the Indiana University School of Medicine, where he was Director of the Electrophysiology Laboratory. In 1986, he returned to Duke University as Professor of Medicine and Director of the Cardiac Arrhythmia Center. He joined St. Vincent in 1988. In addition to co-authoring two textbooks, Cardiac Arrhythmias: An Integrated Approach for the Clinician and Clinical Electrophysiology Review, Dr. Prystowsky also has authored over 700 materials concerning cardiac arrhythmias. He is the editor-in-chief of The Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology and is on the editorial board of 15 journals.

Additionally, he is past chairman of the American Heart Association’s Committee on Electrocardiography and Electrophysiology, past president of the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), and past chairman of the Test Writing Committee for Clinical Electrophysiology for the American Board of Internal Medicine.
