Emergency Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes Provider/Instructor
Participants learn a rapid and systematic approach to the prehospital evaluation and management of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Pathophysiology, clinical assessment, 12-lead ECG performance and interpretation, indications and contraindications for thrombolytic therapy, and field treatment will be reviewed. This course emphasizes the standard of care as outlined in guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
Interaction is key, through hands-on ECG performance, case-based workshops, an interactive training scenario, and the presentation of heart and lung auscultatory findings in ACS patients. Those qualified to be ACS instructors will participate in a working lunch and brief post-class session; please note where you teach in the comments box as you complete the registration process.
Classes can be scheduled upon group request.
