Objectives
  • Describe the basic electrophysiology of the heart: Electrical versus mechanical function.
  • Utilize the “Thumbs Technique” to determine the ventricular axis of the heart.
  • Review the more common cardiac arrhythmias and discuss the causes.
  • Define hemodynamic principles in the body.
  • Relate coronary artery perfusion to cardiac musculature and the conduction system.
  • Interpret ischemia, injury, and infarction patterns on a 12-lead ECG, 15-lead, and right-sided ECG.
  • Integrate new evidenced-based guidelines to treat Acute Coronary Syndrome.
  • Explain the process of valvular dysfunction and state treatments for aortic and mitral valve disease.
  • Describe heart failure and relate physical assessment findings to hemodynamic parameters in a patient with decompensated heart failure.
  • State the evidenced-based treatments to include medications and invasive procedures for chronic and acute heart failure.
  • Differentiate dilated from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • Discuss pericarditis to include causes, ECG changes and treatment modalities.
