5C: Concepts in Contemporary Critical Care Cardiology

Boston, MA US
April 28, 2023 to April 29, 2023

THIS IS A VIRTUAL COURSE


5C: Concepts in Contemporary Critical Care Cardiology is a novel offering of the MGH Heart Center designed to educate practicing clinicians about current topics at the forefront of cardiac intensive care – such as ECMO and mechanical circulatory support - and provide clinicians with a robust evidence base of medical knowledge to be able to provide comprehensive care to modern cardiac intensive care patients.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other members of the healthcare team. This activity is intended for providers in the specialties of Anesthesiology, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiology, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, Internal Medicine, Interventional Cardiology, Pulmonary Disease, Thoracic Surgery, and Vascular Surgery.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Compare available strategies for urgent univentricular and biventricular mechanical support.
  2. Choose vasoactive medications based on an algorithmic approach to shock phenotypes.
  3. Practice consensus-based selection criteria for choosing ECMO and mechanical circulatory support strategies.
  4. Select strategies for optimal care of the post-arrest patient.
  5. Manage refractory hypoxemia with improved understanding of ventilator parameters and mechanics in cardiac patients, and acknowledge heart-lung interaction and impact on physiology and treatment.
  6. Evaluate contributions of right ventricular dysfunction and ventricular interdependence in acute cardiopulmonary dysfunction.
  7. Demonstrate appropriate systems-based practice in modern cardiac critical care by employing care bundles and evidence-based practice with nutrition and physical therapy.
  8. Recognize signs and causes of delirium in critically ill patients and implement appropriate neuropharmacologic treatment plan.
