9th Annual Advanced Heart Failure Symposium 2021

November 5, 2021

There is a lack of centers in urban areas that offer advanced heart failure therapies.  As a result, there is a tremendous knowledge gap in the need for timely referral for patients who may benefit from therapies such as heart transplant or durable mechanical circulatory support. During this course, we will explain the potential benefits of these therapies and discuss the optimal time to refer patients and in managing critically ill patients with heart failure that require invasive hemodynamic assessment and temporary mechanical circulatory support.

This conference is being held virtually.

Target Audience

This course is intended for all physicians including internal medicine physicians, cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, invasive cardiologists RN’s, NP’s, PA’s and health care professionals involved in the care of cardiovascular patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, learners should be able to:

  1. Review the pathophysiology of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and the basic diagnostic workup and cornerstones of therapy
  2. Explore the history of adults with congenital heart disease as it relates to potential need for advanced heart failure therapies
  3. Analyze which patients constitute “advanced” heart failure and the key clinical characteristics associated with high clinical risk
  4. List potential improvements and changes in patient reported outcomes in those undergoing durable LVAD implantation
  5. Explore clinical diagnosis and management in cardiac amyloidosis, along with new updates in therapy
  6. Formulate indications for surgical revascularization of coronary disease, with considerations for high-risk revascularization in those with severe cardiomyopathies
  7. Review pathophysiology of cardiac sarcoidosis, along with diagnosis and management
  8. Evaluate the full spectrum of invasive hemodynamics in the clinical practice of heart failure care
  9. Implement cornerstones of guideline-directed medical therapy for heart failure management
  10. Recognize cardiogenic shock in both patients with acute and chronic heart failure
