Description

  • The NEED TO KNOW Arrhythmias
  • Cardiac Conditions: What is Actually Happening?
  • The ABCs of Cardiac Medications
  • Heart Failure: Which Organs are Really Affected?

Did you ever wonder why your patent with a myocardial infarction will have dyspnea?

Or have a hard time explaining how beta-blockers work?

Or become confused about ejection fractions, let alone hemodynamics?

If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about which blood vessel perfuses what part of the heart, or why they have an arrhythmia, or how their heart failure is causing their kidney problems, then you need to join Cynthia L. Webner, DNP, RN, CCNS, CCRN-CMC, CHFN, a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.

Designed with the bedside clinician in mind, this seminar is appropriate for all healthcare professionals wanting to improve their assessment skills, build a firm foundation of cardiac anatomy and physiology and apply these skills in daily patient care. Understanding these essential concepts will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately. Cynthia’s teaching style allows for an informal interactive discussion. You will leave with a systematic approach to interpreting ECGs, an understanding of common cardiac pathologies, and a renewed commitment to achieving excellence in patient care.

Claire D

"It was a pleasure to learn from Cindy. I am an Occupational Therapist and I work with many patients with cardiac conditions in a rehab setting. Your course gave me so much insight into the cardiac conditions my patients are living with and the medications and procedures they receive. I think this course will make me a better therapist in my practice. You are inspiring as a clinician and as a speaker as both your passion for your practice and compassion for your patients shines as you speak. "
