Hands-on Workshop
12 Lead EKG Interpretation for Primary Care Providers

3 CE/CME Credits Available
8:30 AM – 11:45 AM

Faculty:
Leslie L. Davis, PhD, RN, ANP-BC, FAANP, FPCNA, FAHA
Mary Ellen Roberts, DNP, RN, APN-C, FAANP, FAAN, FNAP

Description:
This workshop will take the participant through the steps of interpreting a 12-Lead ECG necessary for the primary care provider. This interactive workshop will include didactic content and case studies to increase participants’ knowledge and skills for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs in adult patients. During the workshop participants will practice hands-on activities to increase their confidence in applying a systematic approach to interpretation.

Learning Objectives:
After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Review the principles behind the 12 views on the electrocardiogram (ECG) & how they align with frontal, augmented, & precordial leads.
  2. Interpret axis deviation, if present, on the 12-Lead ECG.
  3. Identify possible pathological events that explain abnormalities on the 12-Lead ECG.
  4. Utilize a systematic approach for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs

 

Hands-on Spirometry Workshop

3 CE/CME Credits Available
1:30 PM – 4:45 PM

Faculty:
Mary Lou Hayden, RN, MS, FNP-BC, AE-C
Concettina (Tina) Tolomeo, DNP, APRN, BC, AE-C

Description:
This workshop takes the participant through the information and skills needed for the primary care provider to incorporate spirometry into daily clinical practice. Spirometry basics are presented, followed by participant having an opportunity to perform this test on a fellow participant using an actual spirometer. The workshop concludes with case study discussions relating a case presentation and interpretation of the spirometry.

Learning Objectives:

After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Review indications for using spirometry in primary care
  2. Perform routine spirometry using ATS standards
  3. Recognize abnormal spirometry graphs and identify conditions represented by the graphs
  4. Discuss spirometry measurements presented in the guidelines for diagnosis of asthma and COPD

 

Interactive Kidney Workshop

3 CE/CME Credits Available
1:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Faculty:
Denise Link, MPAS, PA-C

Description:
Acid-base, hyperkalemia and hyponatremia disorders can be complex and difficult to diagnose and understand. 

Using patient examples, Denise K Link, MPAS, PA-C, FNKF of the National Kidney Foundation and American Academy of Nephrology PAs has stories that will enable you to approach any ABG, hyperkalemia with confidence.

This interactive case presentation will provide a step wise approach using patient examples to help diagnosis the underlying acid/base disorder(s) leading to comprehension between compensated and non-compensated disorders, hyperkalemia and/or hyponatremia etiology.

Learning Objectives:

After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

1. Interpret ABG with confidence after review of stepwise approach for diagnosis acid/base disorders
2. Discuss differences between compensated and non-compensated acid-base disorders
3, Appreciate iatrogenic medications that lead to electrolyte disorders
4. Identify common etiologies of hyperkalemia and subsequent treatment options
5. Recognize algorithm necessary when approaching any hyponatremia
