TOPIC 1: Update on the Evaluation of Chest Pain

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

  1. Based on recent standard of care publications, review the contribution of history, physical exam, and EKG findings to the evaluation of chest pain.
  2. Distinguish ischemic EKG changes from their common mimics.
  3. Apply the use of novel and standard cardiac biomarkers to the diagnosis of ACS.
  4. Based on the guidance from the ACC/AHAS and recent significant research studies, determine the best evaluation strategy for the individual chest pain patient.

TOPIC 2: Post-Arrest Care

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

  1. Develop goals for oxygenation and ventilation in the patient with return of spontaneous circulation following cardiac arrest.
  2. Identify the optimal mean arterial blood pressure in post-arrest patients.
  3. Employ appropriate use of targeted temperature management in post-arrest patients.
  4. Determine which post-arrest patients should be sent for emergent cardiac catheterization.

TOPIC 3: Strategies to Address the Issue of Preventable Hospital Readmissions

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

  1. Identify the factors which contribute to increase risk of readmission.
  2. Stratify the risk for readmission utilizing evidence-based tools.
  3. Develop a transition of care strategy to reduce the likelihood of a preventable readmission.
