Faculty:Alyson N. Owen, M.D., Gregary Marhefka, M.D

Original Release Date: July 1, 2020  Expiration Date: July 1, 2023

TOPIC 1: Atrial Fibrillation

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, GL, COMP

  1. Relate the importance of anticoagulation, based upon CHADS2VASC Risk Scores and the ACC/AHA Guidelines in the management of atrial fibrillation.
  2. List various pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical methods of normalizing ventricular rate.
  3. Compare two possible strategies for cardioversion in atrial fibrillation.
  4. Assess the potential benefit and harm of antiarrhythmic therapies.

TOPIC 2: Congestive Heart Failure.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to:  GL, COMP

  1. Recognize the symptoms of congestive heart failure and appropriately Stage as per the ACC/AHA Guidelines.
  2. Identify common causes of systolic heart failure.
  3. Employ current ACCF/AHA Guidelines and standard-of-care therapies, differentiating between those treatments which reduce mortality and those that improve symptoms.

TOPIC 3: Distinguishing, Diagnosing and Treating Carditis: Pericarditis, Myocarditis and Endocarditis.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, GL, COMP

  1. Determine indication and timing of cardiac MRI and/or endomyocardial biopsy to delineate the etiology, prognosis and treatment course in acute myocarditis using evidence-based medicine.
  2. Recognize acute myocarditis when treating a new acute heart failure patient.
  3. Apply evidence-based medicine treatment strategies in acute pericarditis.
  4. Identify and apply ACC/AHA/ASE guideline-directed patient selection for transesophageal echocardiogram in suspected or confirmed acute endocarditis
  5. Apply ACC/AHA guidelines in management and timing of operative referral for acute endocarditis
