  • Vascular Access for Radial, Brachial, Internal Jugular, and Other Sites

    Description:
    In modern interventional cardiology, the central circulation is accessed for many reasons, ranging from coronary imaging and intervention, to hemodynamic measurement, myocardial biopsy, valvular interventional procedures, diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease, and multiple other indications. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Waveform Interpretation: Left Atrial, Aortic, Peripheral Arteries, Left Ventricular

    Description:
    Recording hemodynamic pressures from the left atrium can be straightforward in the presence of certain abnormalities such as atrial septal defect or patent foramen ovale, but will require trans-septal puncture in many patients. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Waveform Interpretation: Right Atrial, Right Ventricular, Pulmonary Artery

    Description:
    Many cardiac and critical care patients undergo right-heart catheterization to measure pressures and oxygen saturations in the right-sided cardiac chambers. In addition to the absolute value of these measurements, there is significant information about cardiac physiology and pathology that can be gained by examining the various waves and morphologies of the pressure recordings.

  • Waveform Interpretation: Simultaneous LV and RV Waveforms & Simultaneous LV and FA

    Description:
    In this lesson, we will review the principles of analysis of high-quality hemodynamic pressure recordings. We will focus on respiratory effects and simultaneous pressure recordings from left-sided and right-sided chambers. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • What to Do When There is a Family History of Heart Disease

    Description:
    This course highlights the importance of recognizing inherited cardiovascular diseases and documenting any family history of cardiovascular disease, as well as implementing family cardiovascular screening and determining which patients might need additional genetic testing. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • When Eosinophils Attack

    Description:
    This interesting case involves a patient with cardiogenic shock due to an unusual form of cardiomyopathy. This diagnosis is frequently missed as it is often not even considered. Our patient was treated with an LVAD and histopathologic examination of the myocardium plug sampled during surgery led to the diagnosis. The patient was treated with both left and right ventricular support devices (LVAD, RVAD) and survived through hospital discharge. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Wide Complex Tachycardia

    Description:
    Tachyarrhythmias can present a significant clinical challenge. Patients presenting with fast heart rate may be unstable with chest pain, hypotension, or with myocardial ischemia, or they may be completely asymptomatic. The initial approach typically involves distinguishing between tachycardias with a wide QRS complex ("wide complex tachycardias") versus those with a narrow QRS complex ("narrow complex tachycardias"). Narrow complex tachycardias are always supra-ventricular in origin. Wide complex tachycardias are more complex as they may arise from supra-ventricular sources and conduct aberrantly (supra-ventricular tachycardia with aberrancy) or they may arise from ventricular sources (ventricular tachycardia). In this case, we will examine a patient presenting with tachycardia and work our way through a differential diagnosis. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.
