ECG Interpretation and Treatment:

This facilitator-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and pharmacology knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies. This course was designed for healthcare providers who participate in the management of cardiovascular emergencies. This includes emergency response personnel, nurses, paramedics, and others who require this specialized knowledge for their job. This course is a good preparation course for the ACLS provider course.

The focus of this course will be on learning to interpret cardiac arrhythmias and knowing what to do when your patient is experiencing them. The treatment will be based on the American Heart Association (AHA) ACLS guidelines. This course is a great preview if you will be taking ACLS soon.

Because the course covers extensive material within a short period, it is imperative that you prepare for the course in advance. Please review thoroughly pages 1-10 prior to coming to the course.

Overview:

In an environment where success is measured in terms of cost of total care as opposed to the lowest possible piece-price, packaging becomes a vehicle for enhanced health outcomes. Patient-centered solutions are taking center stage in healthcare, and HcPIE is the event focused on patient-centered packaging design.

This year’s Immersion Event returns to the MSU campus, enabling more interaction and immersion. Participants will have unparalleled access to complete patient care teams and the opportunity to participate in healthcare simulations focused on package design and evaluation at our state of the art simulation facility. During the two day event, participants will: study the performance of healthcare packaging in realistic environments and interact and exchange ideas with provider teams in order to address current trends, needs problems and solutions for healthcare packaging.

This year’s event features both pharmaceutical and medical device tracks, and space is very limited, so register early.
