Cardiac Emergencies (for Nurses)
Cardiac emergencies require urgent attention, and delay of treatment to these patients may cause fatalities. Understanding how the condition will affect the patient is key to understanding treatment efficacy and the importance of the nurse’s role within the management of these patients.
This webinar will take an in-depth look at emergency management and treatment of common cardiac emergencies that present to the ER. Specific topics will include congestive heart failure, arrhythmia's, and pericardial effusion. During this one-hour session, top tips and deeper understanding of pathophysiology, clinical symptoms, treatment and nursing considerations will be addressed. A comprehensive focus on ECG interpretation and introduction to ultrasound techniques through case studies will help the nurse with case management.
