About the Course
Approximately one-third of patients with an acute cardiac emergency conditions die without medical attention within few hours of the onset of their first symptoms, and a large proportion of these deaths are due to potentially reversible factors. A high percentage of these patients die before reaching the hospital.
Effective management of such patients can only be achieved by training the doctors in community resuscitation schemes and prevention programs by special training and education in dealing with cardiac emergencies. In this course we have concise and relevant evidence-based guidelines relating to the management of common cardiac emergencies for doctors working in cardiology units, general medical units, intensive care units and related areas like accident and emergency departments.
Our attempt has been to provide better understanding and more effective learning by using multimedia-based animations, videos and interactive drug tables.
