Description

This course provides nurses with foundational information to caring for patients with cardiovascular disease. This course can serve as a reference for nurses working in cardiovascular care areas or desiring to work in cardiovascular care. The curriculum begins with a review of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. Cardiac hemodynamic measurements and the principles of oxygen transport are discussed, as well as the burden of cardiovascular disease on the general population. Nursing application points in the clinical setting are highlighted throughout the text to assist in identifying key issues in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.

Heightened awareness among clinicians and patients is the first step toward impacting cardiovascular disease. Nurses with comprehensive knowledge of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology have a key role in the early recognition and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease. Foundational information of cardiovascular care helps initiate prevention discussions and lifestyle management interventions. Through patient education and quality care, nurses can prevent premature disease and death among patients with cardiovascular disease.

Western Schools is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
