Imagine you are taking care of your patient – anywhere – any department/floor in the hospital, a nursing home, surgical site, or during a home health visit and suddenly grasp that an emergent cardiac situation is unfolding. Do you feel confident that you would know how to respond?

When your patient is experiencing an acute myocardial infarction, heart failure exacerbation, or a dissecting aneurysm, are you confident you can rapidly assess and intervene with the most current evidence-based interventions? What if your patient has an LVAD? Do you have the ability to deliver the care needed for this patient and troubleshoot the device? Join nationally-recognized cardiac clinical nurse specialist Cheryl Herrmann, RN, MS, APN, CCRN, CCNS-CSC-CMC, for this 2-day live webcast as she explains complex concepts to advance your current skills and transform your own practice.

You will analyze challenging case studies to recognize the borderline and abnormal findings that you may have previously missed. Whether you are a seasoned cardiac professional or noncardiac professional wanting to learn more about life threatening cardiac issues, you do not want to miss this workshop. It is guaranteed to provide you with new clinical insights and critical thinking skills, so you won’t need to feel uncertain, scared or at risk anymore!
