Harvard – 5C: Concepts in Contemporary Critical Care Cardiology

5C Concepts in Contemporary Critical Care Cardiology is a novel offering of the MGH Heart Center designed to educate practicing clinicians about current topics at the forefront of cardiac intensive care – such as ECMO and mechanical circulatory support – and provide clinicians with a robust evidence base of medical knowledge to be able to provide comprehensive guideline-based and best-practice in care to modern cardiac intensive care patients.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Compare available strategies for urgent univentricular and biventricular mechanical support.
  • Choose vasoactive medications based on an algorithmic approach to shock phenotypes.
  • Practice consensus-based selection criteria for choosing ECMO and mechanical circulatory support strategies.
  • Select strategies for the optimal care of the post-arrest patient.
  • Manage refractory hypoxemia with improve understanding of ventilator parameters and mechanics in cardiac patients, and acknowledge heart-lung interaction and impact on physiology and treatment.
  • Evaluate contributions of right ventricular dysfunction and ventricular interdependence in acute cardiopulmonary dysfunction.
  • Demonstrate appropriate systems-based practice in modern cardiac critical care by employing care bundles and evidence-based practice with nutrition and physical therapy.
  • Recognize signs and causes of delirium in critically ill patients and implement an appropriate neuropharmacologic treatment plan.

Target Audience

This course is targeted to Specialty Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Nurses and Physician Assistants. This course may also be of interest to physicians who practice in Critical Care and Trauma, Emergency Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, Anesthesiology, Hospital Medicine, Thoracic Surgery, Pharmacology and Cardiology and Vascular Medicine.
