Course Overview

Welcome to Cardiology (2.50 CME)

In this course we will cover all the main cases of Cardiology that you will face in the hospital on a daily basis.  From Angina, to atrial fibrillation, to heart failure and everything in between.  By the end of this section, you should be ready to tackle the most common Cardiac abnormalities that you will see in the hospital.  This will be done through discussing real life cases, how the patients present, how to diagnose them and how to treat them according to the latest guidelines.

  • If you do not have basic knowledge of EKG and ACLS, this course will be a good introduction to EKG basics and changes that you will eventually need to know for different abnormalities

All the cases were reviewed with a Cardiologist prior to submission.
