Diagnosis and Classification of Myocardial Infarction

So, what is a heart attack? Over the years, several different definitions of Myocardial Infarction have been used, leading to controversy and confusion. The never-ending jargon of STEMI and non-STEMI, anterior and inferior MI, type 1 and type 2 MI may have left you similarly confused. This webinar will take you through the classification of Myocardial Infarction, pathophysiology and diagnosis of this common condition.

 

Guest Speaker: Charlie Bloe, Lead Nurse for Cardiology, CCU, Raigmore Hospital

 

This event is free to attend and is aimed at Healthcare professionals working in Primary & Secondary Care.

Recognizing Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and embolic stroke risk assessment

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the commonest cardiac arrhythmia and is particularly prevalent in the elderly population. It carries a five-fold increased risk of embolic stroke. This webinar will help you recognize AF clinically, including the ECG appearances, and undertake stroke risk assessment on affected patients.

 

Speaker: Charlie Bloe 

 

  • Epidemiology of AF.
  • Pathophysiology of AF and the left atrial appendage.
  • Recognizing AF on an ECG
  • Stroke risk assessment using the CHADSVASc tool.
  • Case studies

Occlusive MI (OMI) ECG patterns without ST elevation.

Around 1 in 4 patients with an acutely occluded coronary artery will not present with the classical ST elevation changes (STEMI), usually seen. Rather, their ECG will display an Occlusive Myocardial Infarction (OMI) pattern that may not be recognised by interpretative ECG software and/or healthcare professionals not experienced in cardiology. This webinar will help you identify the main OMI presentation:

 

    • Posterior MI

 

    • DeWinters presentation

 

    • Hyperacute T waves

 

  • Case studies.

The ECG in acute coronary syndrome

Acute myocardial infarction occurs when there is acute occlusion of a coronary artery by thrombus, usually at the site of a ruptured atheromatous plaque. This webinar will help you recognize acute coronary syndrome in patients that present with chest pain.

 

  • Coronary Heart Disease. Epidemiology and pathophysiology of atherosclerotic plaque formation.

 

  • The 12-lead ECG in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) Case study review of clinical presentation and differentiation between:
    • Unstable angina
    • NSTEMI
    • STEMI

The normal 12-led ECG

An ECG (electrocardiogram) is a recording of the electrical activity within the heart muscle. It is the most commonly performed cardiac test. Practice in 12-lead ECG recording varies across the Health Service predominantly due to variations in training, personal experience and preferences as well as resources. This short workshop will help you to identify the appearances of a normal 12-lead ECG and will cover:

 

  • Limb leads and chest leads.
  • Anatomical surfaces of the heart visualised by the ECG.
  • QRS morphology.

 

Guest Speaker: Charlie Bloe, Lead Nurse for Cardiology, CCU, Raigmore Hospital 

 

This event is free to attend and is aimed at Healthcare professionals working in and supporting Primary Care.

The Heart of the Matter – Recognizing Atrial Fibrillation (AF) from an ECG.

AF is the commonest cardiac arrhythmia. It increases the risk of embolic stroke five-fold. Opportunistic diagnosis and confirmation of the arrhythmia through ECG recording is therefore an important skill for healthcare professionals across primary and secondary care. This workshop will help you to identify the ECG appearances of AF and atrial flutter.
