Implications for Systolic and Diastolic Dysfunction
• Describe the pressure and volume changes in a normal ventricle during the cardiac cycle
• Describe the relationship between stroke volume and pre-load
• Define heart failure caused by ventricular systolic and diastolic dysfunction
• List common causes of systolic and diastolic dysfunction and possible intracellular mechanisms
• Contrast intracardiac pressure and volume changes, and structural changes associated with systolic and diastolic dysfunction
• Describe the physiologic basis of different treatment modalities for improving ventricular function implications for Systolic and Diastolic Dysfunction
The Indiana Osteopathic Association is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians and designates this program for a maximum of 0.75 AOA Category 1-A credits and will report CME and specialty credits commensurate with the extent of the physician's participation in this activity.
It is the policy of the IOA that any physician dissatisfied with the CME program will be issued a refund upon request, and no CME credits will be reported to the AOA. Complaints on Evaluation Forms also are taken into consideration when planning future CME programs and may lead to changes in the format or content.
