Description

You commonly rely on EKG and Chest X-Ray results to diagnose a wide variety of cardiac and respiratory conditions, yet even the most seasoned NPs, PAs, and RNs can struggle to truly master interpretation of these key tests.

We understand the complexities involved and have heard your requests for a program that will advance your skills and confidence. Cheryl Herrmann, RN, MS, APRN, CCRN, CCNS-CSC/CMC, is the critical care/cardiac expert clinician selected to develop this program – to take your own practice to another level!

Don’t miss this opportunity to:

  • Analyze QRS axis to determine diagnosis
  • Contrast left anterior and posterior hemiblocks
  • Recognize the location of acute coronary syndromes
  • Interpret chest x-rays for differential diagnosis
  • Perform more efficient and effective patient assessments

Cheryl’s practical insights and research-based updates will elevate new ways of thinking. You will be able to rapidly assess, take information from the incoming test results and initiate the best treatments for your patients.
