Marcia Gamaly - Advancing Your Telemetry Skills for the Complex Patient

/images/uploaded/1019/Marcia Gamaly - Advancing Your Telemetry Skills for the Complex Patient.jpg

  • Many hands-on skill labs to test your knowledge
  • Cardioversion, pacing, defibrillation
  • Never miss the subtle changes that can signal trouble
  • Latest trends in chest pain and heart failure management
  • What you can expect from new medications in practice
  • Best tips to monitor patient’s post-catheterization

Managing complex patients in the telemetry unit can be challenging for even experienced nurses in today’s outcome and technology-driven cardiology world. Are you familiar with the core measures frequently monitored on the telemetry unit? Are you confident in your ability to care for a patient who has a wearable defibrillator? Are you comfortable in your ability to titrate and wean oxygen? Do you hesitate on the steps necessary to cardiovert or defibrillate your unstable patient? Best practices are constantly evolving in response to the latest guidance coming from research. While it can be challenging to remain current with trends in telemetry nursing care, for your patients… it can be critical that you do so. Make time to attend this hands-on, engaging and highly informative event to advance your practice!
