Differential Diagnosis Across the Life Span: Differential Diagnosis of Common Adult Cardiovascular Disorders, Part 1

Making appropriate diagnoses for cardiovascular disorders is crucial for an NP. Part 1 of this engaging, highly detailed CE offering begins with an exploration of the various conditions that cause chest pain. These possible differentials are combined with profound analyses on comorbid conditions and risk factors, such as metabolic syndrome and pulmonary embolism, among others.

Our dynamic session then dives into best treatment options for hyperlipidemia and includes an elaborate examination of statin medications. Following up with a meticulous discussion on primary and secondary hypertension, this presentation is sure to strengthen your skill sets and advance your clinical practice.

Participants who complete this course will be able to:

  • Empower patients to improve their cardiac health through blood pressure monitoring and life-style modifications
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of statin intolerance and statin-induced myopathies
  • Understand the most recent guidelines in reducing risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease through cholesterol management
