Mr. Jones is day 2 on the telemetry unit where he had been admitted following flu symptoms with nausea and vomiting. He was seen by the physician this a.m. and is scheduled for discharge when suddenly his monitor alarms from ventricular fibrillation. What happened? What did we miss?
There has been a paradigm shift in how we care for our cardiac population. In the past, we focused on episodic care. Care for the cardiac patient needs to incorporate the additional focus on the continuum of care. This conference will discuss the care of the cardiac patient from the acute event, initiation of secondary prevention therapies, cardiac rehab referrals, preventing re-admissions, and improving the quality of life for cardiac patients.
- Determine the preferred treatment options based on acute heart disease pathophysiology.
- Investigate the diagnostic progression that could meet eligibility criteria for cardiac rehabilitation referral.
- Explore successful strategies for the most common lifestyle challenges that patients with acute cardiac disease may be experiencing.
- Analyze the effectiveness of secondary prevention programs.
- Evaluate gaps between in-patient and out-patient cardiac rehabilitation referrals.
- Separate LVAD, Life Vest and bridge therapies.
- Anticipate the next unexpected event when caring for heart disease patients.
- Assess opportunities to incorporate virtual technology use in patient monitoring and follow up.
