The Art & Science of Cardiac Physical Examination
Fri, 22 Sep 2017, 7:30 AM – Sat, 23 Sep 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
This 2 day course is designed to update physicians and trainees on the Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination. It is a comprehensive course on bedside techniques. The program will feature discussions by experts in the field as well as group auscultation sessions and special sessions on precordial pulsations and jugular pulse contour analysis. An hour-long session will be dedicated each day to provide a clinical update on recent therapeutic advances in cardiovascular medicine.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the normal and abnormal precordial pulsations.
2. Examine jugular venous pressure/pulsations and heart sounds.
3. Recognize and differentiate commonly encountered heart murmurs.
Recordings of actual patients with the use of multiple group listening devices and instant visual display of the actual phono trace will enhance the learning experience. Physiological explanation will be updated and simultaneous echo-cardiograms, pulses, and pressures will be used for correlations. Precordial pulsations and jugular pulsations will be taught with the aid of actual video recording from patients.
