PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A 1-DAY COURSE BEING HELD VIA LIVE VIDEO CONFERENCE, November 5 FROM 8-5:30pm Eastern Standard Time.
This course provides an up to date and in-depth review of cardiovascular (CV) pathophysiology for the commonly seen CV diagnoses. Clinicians will understand how to determine and recognize severity of disease and how that impacts Physical Therapy (PT) interventions. Participants will learn how to understand common CV diagnostic tests and labs including why tests are performed, how to interpret these tests and how to apply results to your PT interventions. You will acquire treatment approaches for adult CV patients including primary and secondary prevention for cardiovascular diseases (CVD), ICU and acute care PT interventions for patients with CVD and advanced interventions for patients with complex CVD. This course also provides a comprehensive study of how CV outcome measures can be utilized in the acute care setting to assist with case management, discharge recommendations, assessment of deficits, and progression of the treatment plan. Content is based on evidence and clinical tips will be assimilated into all course material to allow direct application to daily patient care experiences.
