I think the diuretic section is very useful for giving more options for the unstable cardiac patient.

12 months access gives me plenty of time to do it. That is what is great about your courses.

What will I learn on this course?

Session 1

Mechanisms of Cardiac Arrhythmias Made Easy

  • Important advances in the understanding of the electrophysiologic mechanisms underlying the development of a variety of cardiac arrhythmias
  • A comprehensive overview of the basic mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmia - enhanced or abnormal impulse formation (focal activity) and conduction disturbances (reentry)
  • This session will serve as the foundation for Session 2

Session 2

Tackling Challenging ECGs

  • The key surface ECG features that relate to cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms (both supraventricular and ventricular)
  • Apply your new knowledge to clinical ECG cases
  • Gain confidence in the interpretation of complex cardiac rhythm disturbances encountered in canine and feline patients
  • This session will be illustrated with lots of practical ECG examples

Session 3

Mechanisms and Management of Diuretic Resistance

  • The definition and mechanisms of loop diuretic resistance
  • The clinical importance of evaluating response to diuretic dose in an individual patient to ensure optimal diuretic usage
  • Strategies to try to overcome diuretic resistance in canine and feline chronic heart failure patients

This course has given me a better understanding of difficulties with diuretics and how to sort this, and easier to predict patients which will be harder to control CHF.
