Cardiovascular Pathophysiology, Complications, and Interventions

 

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016). It is imperative that nurses and medical assistants know how to readily identify clients with potential cardiovascular disease. Through the use of clinical case studies, interactive lessons, and descriptive examples, you will learn how to assess and care for the adult client with cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular risk factors. This course is intended for entry and intermediate level primary care staff in a variety of healthcare settings. DSM and DSM-5 are registered trademarks of the American Psychiatric Association.
