Cardiopulmonary Assessment to Manage Your Patients Effectively 
Thousands of Americans suffer from cardiopulmonary related diseases which account for a majority of hospitalizations throughout the U.S. Managing those patients adequately can play a critical role in the course of their hospitalizations and can also impact future re-admissions for symptoms related to underlying cardiac and pulmonary illnesses. Even with the increased use of medications to control cholesterol and drug eluding stents, there is still an epidemic of cardiac disease in this country. In addition, while smoking is trending downward it is still the number one cause of COPD and lung cancer. Rehab and allied health professionals can play a pivotal role in the care of these patients to help reduce length of stay, improve functional mobility, and educate patients about the importance of staying active and managing their disease(s) to prevent frequent hospitalizations.

This comprehensive one-day seminar will provide valuable clinical information to effectively manage patients with cardiopulmonary issues. Participants will learn about up-to-date research in cardiac care and be able to identify gender differences in relation to cardiac symptoms. Anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, post-surgical care, and 12-lead EKG interpretation will be discussed and a practical lab component will review auscultation, heart sounds, and assessment techniques for cardiopulmonary patients. Questions related to exercise prescription and progression will also be addressed. 

  • Review cardiac and pulmonary anatomy and physiology

  • Discuss the effect of cardiovascular disease on functional mobility

  • Recognize gender differences and their relationship to cardiac symptoms

  • Evaluate evidence-based literature related to cardiopulmonary therapy and its impact

  • Examine surgical interventions and acute and post-operative care from a rehabilitation point of view

  • Design a care plan based on cardiac and pulmonary diagnoses and specific needs to improve patient outcomes

  • Study auscultation, heart sounds, and the most up-to-date assessment techniques for cardiopulmonary patients
