Location:St Petersburg, Florida
Schedule:8:00 am to 4:00 pm EST
Course#:CME4Life Lifeblood

This course is an absolute baseline for the clinician to have mastery of. There are fundamental key knowledge points that every clinician needs to know that, at times, had been missed in clinical education. This program fills in the gaps and ensures up-to-date clinical knowledge on the foundational principles’ mandatory for clinical practice.

  1. Pharmacology
  2. Radiology
  3. EKG interpretation
  4. Laboratory medicine

This curriculum will lay the foundation of clinical application of the medications we prescribe.  We will discuss mechanisms of action, clinical indications, contraindications.

We will lay the foundation of clinical interpretation of EKGs in the setting of patient presentation.  This is a methodical approach patterned after CME4Life’s famous curriculum, the Black Belt EKG system.

We will also provide a system of CXR interpretation. Laying the foundation of clinical interpretation of plain film radiographs in the setting of patient presentation.

John literally wrote the book on Lab Medicine called Elemental Medicine. John will lay out the groundwork for clinical laboratory interpretation in the setting of patient presentation.

Fundamentals of Clinical EKG Interpretation 

This curriculum will lay the foundation of clinical interpretation of EKGs in the setting of patient presentation.  This is a methodical approach patterned after CME4Life’s famous curriculum, the Black Belt EKG system.

Objectives:

Make sound judgments decisions regarding the ordering and interpretation of radiographs.

  • Anatomy of the EKG
  • “R on T” phenomenon
  • Rhythm strip interpretation
  • QRS complex: Why is the QRS complex wide?
  • Bundle Branch Block
  • Hyperkalemia on ECGs
  • Causes of tachycardia
  • Ventricular hypertrophy
  • 12 lead ECG:
    • 5 causes ST segment elevation – APPLE mnemonic
    • 4 causes of ST segment depression – DRIL mnemonic
    • 4 causes of T wave inversion – SLIP mnemonic
    • 3 causes of a wide complex QRS – CVA mnemonic

 

  • ACLS
    • Bradyarrhythmia
    • Atrial arrhythmias
    • Ventricular arrhythmias
      • Unsynchronized and Synchronized shock
    • Resuscitation

 

Fundamentals of Clinical Radiology

This curriculum will lay the foundation of clinical interpretation of plain film radiographs in the setting of patient presentation.  We will also provide a system of CXR interpretation.

Objectives:

Make judgments about the ordering and interpretation of radiographs.

CXR interpretation – a systemic approach.

Chest: pneumothorax/ CHF/pleural effusion/ pneumonia/ lung cancer/ atelectasis/ pulmonary embolism
