Course Description

Patients that present to the emergency department (ED) with acute cardiac conditions are high risk for misdiagnosis and high risk for decompensation. But, standards of care and optimal practice recommendations are constantly changing, making it difficult to keep practicing in a cutting edge manner.

In this course, the speakers will sort through the latest literature and discuss optimal care of many high-risk cardiac conditions that are frequently encountered in the ED. Specific attention will be paid to some common confusing and controversial topics in emergency medicine. By the end of the course, attendees will have gained a greater level of comfort in caring for these high-risk patients in the ED!

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the course, each participant should be able to:

  1. Understand some of the newest concepts in management of patients in cardiac arrest.
  2. Be able to describe some of the recent advances in the diagnosis and management of acute coronary syndrome.
  3. Describe some of the cardiac complications associated with COVID-19.
