The event is intended for health professionals, including cardiologists, hospitalists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, emergency medicine physicians, EMTs, paramedics, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, nurses and cardiovascular technologists, interested in current topics and advances in the field of Acute Cardiology Care.

  3. Review the evaluation, identification and management of patients with cardiogenic shock from the perspective of one’s unique clinical role.
  4. Assess best practices/processes of establishing and maintaining cardiogenic shock programs for both referring and receiving centers.

  6. Interpret the role and practice scope of the critical care nurse managing ECMO therapy in a facility that has implemented nurse-driven ECMO protocols.
  7. Determine evidence-based techniques to the access and management of impella or intra-aortic balloon pump patients.
