Description

Heart Failure is the orphan of the cardiology world. There are no great instant turnarounds and no exciting devices. Yet millions of Americans will die with heart failure this year. The battle within the body of a patient with heart failure is simultaneously complex and yet can be simple to understand if knowledge of the internal fight or flight processes of heart failure are understood. This presentation will show participants how heart failure really works and how our understanding of the war within will allow Emergency Nurses to treat Heart Failure patients better and with more safety. Once a participant understands the complex processes in simple terms, the management of Heart Failure and other fight or flight scenarios will all suddenly make more sense.
