ADVANCING THE STANDARD OF CARE - CARDIOVASCULAR AND NEUROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES (2009)

EMCREG–International is pleased to present this complimentary CME monograph covering the proceedings of our 2009 satellite symposium at the ACEP Scientific Assembly in Boston, MA. The monograph covers a number of important topics including acute coronary syndromes (ACS) including non-ST-segment elevation ACS (NSTE ACS) and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), acute heart failure syndromes, STEMI Regional Systems of Care, and medical-legal issues of acute stroke.

CARDIOVASCULAR AND NEUROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES AND POINT-OF-CARE TESTING

The Emergency Medicine Cardiac Research and Education Group (EMCREG)-International is pleased to present this monograph representing the proceedings of our satellite symposium at the ACEP Scientific Assembly in Washington, DC, in late September of 2005. In this monograph, you will find a variety of important topics covered including the CRUSADE Quality Improvement Initiative, clopidogrel’s use in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, low molecular weight heparins in acute coronary syndromes, dyslipidemia, diagnosis and treatment on acute decompensated heart failure, evaluation of pulmonary embolism, cardiac biomarkers in point-of-care testing, the Stroke Center certification concept, evaluation of transient ischemic attacks, and the role of serum biomarkers in the diagnosis of stroke.

ADVANCING THE STANDARD OF CARE - CARDIOVASCULAR AND NEUROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES (2004)

EMCREG-International is pleased to present this educational monograph summarizing our 2004 ACEP Satellite Symposium on cardiovascular and neurovascular emergency care held in San Francisco. Topics presented included: Point-of-Care Testing for ACS in the ED; STEMI Time-to-Treatment; Chest Pain Center; Heart Sound Recording; Anti-Platelet and Anti-Thrombotics in ACS; BNP Consensus Panel; Stroke, and Intracerebral Hemorrhage. It is our hope that this material will provide emergency physicians with information necessary to help care for these seriously ill patients.

CARDIOVASCULAR and NEUROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES: IMPLICATIONS FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE (2003)

CARDIOVASCULAR and NEUROVASCULAR EMERGENCIES: IMPLICATIONS FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE (2003)

Patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with chest pain remain a major clinical challenge. In the United States alone there are over eight million annual visits for this problem, resulting in over four million admissions. Nontraumatic chest discomfort remains the primary catalyst for ED evaluation of possible acute coronary syndromes, including unstable angina, non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and ST-segment myocardial infarction. The diagnosis and treatment of congestive heart failure is also critically important to emergency physicians and other healthcare providers. The diagnosis of cerebrovascular disease is equally difficult, with up to one million patients presenting to the emergency department with stroke each year. Therefore, it is essential that emergency physicians remain on the forefront of state of the art diagnostic and treatment options involving the newest regimens for ACS, CHF, and stroke.
