Time is Muscle…

In a cardiac event, the clock starts ticking as soon as the coronary artery becomes occluded. Are you ready to rapidly interpret STEMI (ST segment elevation myocardial infarction) changes with a 12-lead EKG to help meet the target of 90 minutes door-to-balloon time? The 12-lead EKG is one of the most frequently utilized cardiac assessment tools to identify STEMI changes. Yet, it provides us with so much more information that can help improve patient care. The purpose of this portion of the seminar is to assist the health care professional in mastering 12-lead EKG assessment skills in order to identify the common and not-so-common changes. You will examine criteria for and examples of the following EKG changes: STEMI, NSTEMI, atrial and ventricular hypertrophy, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, and prolonged QT interval.



As Easy as Black and White…

Chest X-rays are also a commonly ordered diagnostic test, yet viewing and interpreting them can be challenging. Chest X-rays can be as simple as black and white. The purpose of this portion of the seminar is to provide nurses and other clinicians with chest X-ray interpretation skills in order to help them easily assess changes in the patient's condition. You will develop skills in line identification; differentiations among atelectasis, pneumonia, ARDS, pleural effusion, and pulmonary edema; and identification of pneumothorax, cardiac tamponade, and cardiomyopathy. You will view examples of numerous chest X-rays in order to reinforce the concepts presented. Clinicians will walk away from this session with practical skills for better, quicker patient assessment allowing for more effective intervention.
