Description

Join Karen M. Marzlin, DNP, RN, CCNS, CCRN-CMC, CHFN, for an insightful and practical day focused on the common types of cardiac disorders that professionals like you see in your practice, and the medications currently used to treat them.

Drawing from three decades of experience treating cardiology patients, Karen will provide you with cutting-edge information regarding the selection of particular cardiac medications, the desired outcomes, potential side effects and drug interactions. Leave with a clear understanding of the physiological basis for cardiovascular drug therapy and drugs used to manipulate hemodynamic parameters, alter the cardiac electrical system, interrupt the clotting process, and to treat a variety of cardiovascular disease states.

Don’t miss this opportunity to keep pace with the ever-changing field of cardiac care, and through the information gained in this seminar, reduce the risk of potential adverse consequences for your patients. You will leave with a holistic perspective of cardiovascular pharmacology and its role in providing your patient with better outcomes and quality of life.
