June 5, 2009 – This year’s Transcatheter Therapeutics (TCT 2009) conference will offer a Cardiovascular Nurse and Technologist Symposium, Sept, 21-22.
The symposium will examine the latest advances in interventional, pharmacologic and clinical/administrative strategies for the management of the cardiovascular patient. These strategies include a focus on the heart attack patient receiving PCI, revascularization decisions, management decisions regarding patients with drug-eluting stents, leadership, and tough calls in clinical decision-making.
Nurses are on the front lines in and out of the cath lab, providing care for patients with cardiovascular disease. This symposium will bring nurses and technologists up to speed on the latest advances in patient care.
Featured topics will include a registered cardiovascular invasive specialists review course; revascularization decisions in various patient groups (multivessel disease, unprotected left main disease, AMI, etc.); improving door-to-balloon times and translating research into practice; bringing surgery into the cath lab suite; and elective PCI at noncardiac surgery facilities.
The symposium will be held at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif., the same location as TCT 2009.
