Acute Cardiac Conditions: Quick Assessment & Rapid Action

OUTLINE

Acute Cardiac Pathology

Cardiogenic Shock

Aortic Dissection

Cardiac Tamponade

Arrhythmias

OBJECTIVES

  1. Analyze EKG, physiologic, vascular, and structural changes related to myocardial ischemia.
  2. Breakdown acute mitral regurgitation due to papillary muscle dysfunction, ventral septal defects, and the acute physiologic symptoms observed.
  3. Communicate acute cardiac interventions including pharmacological, percutaneous and surgical treatments.
  4. Point out the etiology and symptoms of cardiogenic shock and treatments utilized.
  5. Analyze Stanford type A and B aortic dissection and treatments for each including which type requires emergency cardiac surgery.
  6. Breakdown symptoms of cardiac tamponade and appropriate treatments.
  7. Evaluate acute cardiac rhythm changes, etiology, and treatments for each including pharmacological and invasive interventions.

Must Know Cardiac and Respiratory Lab Tests

OUTLINE

OBJECTIVES

  1. Decide when the Troponin implies a myocardial infarct and what else can cause modest elevation to this cardiac marker.
  2. Exploit the differences between ST elevation and ST depression on the EKG as it relates to cardiac insult.
  3. Explore four abnormal findings on the ABG and common causes of each.
  4. Utilize a tool for easy analysis of ABG findings
