Revolutionary Concepts in Cardiovascular Disease - A Practical & Clinical Approach

Event Details

This seminar will cover:

  • Applied Clinical Vascular Biology in the Assessment and Intervention of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Integrative Management of Hypertension and Dyslipidemia: Assessment, Nutritional Interventions, Lifestyle Modifications and Pharmacology

Diagnosis, Preventative Measures, Interventions and Case Presentations for:
        Coronary Heart Disease
        Metabolic Cardiology

Hypertension Objectives
• Understand the pathogenesis of hypertension and the role of vascular biology, three finite vascular responses (inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune function), plasma renin activity (PRA) and aldosterone to select optimal integrative anti-hypertensive therapy to address blood pressure and cardiovascular health.
• Review diagnostic testing for hypertension: 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure (ABM), endothelial function and arterial compliance testing.
• Be able to prioritize and personalize nutritional, nutraceutical and life style interventions.
• Apply micronutrient testing in the evaluation, assessment and intervention of hypertension.
• Know the most important cardiovascular drug-nutrient interactions.
• Briefly review the pharmacologic therapy for hypertension along with nutraceutical recommendations.

Dyslipidemia Objectives
• Review the underlying causes and mechanisms of dyslipidemia and dyslipidemia-induced cardiovascular disease.
• Understand and apply advanced lipid testing (lipid particle number and size and HDL functionality and quality) for of dyslipidemia.
• Prioritize effective methods to promote vascular repair, address vascular damage and define the interrelationships of the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal tract and microbiome.
• Evaluate nutrition and nutritional supplement considerations.
• Review mechanisms involved in dyslipidemia-induced cardiovascular disease and review the integrative therapies.

Coronary Heart Disease and Metabolic Cardiology Objectives
• Learn how to apply global cardiovascular risk scoring using the expanded COSEHC and RASMUSSEN CHD scoring methods.
• Review cardiovascular genomics and SNP’s, the top 5 CHD risk factors, the details of the correct analysis of each, the top 25 modifiable key CHD risk factors and the other 400 CHD risk factors, how to test and their interpretation.
• Review, understand and integrate diagnostics, preventative measures and interventions for CHD, MI and Angina.
• Review metabolic cardiology interventions for CHD and Angina.
• Prioritize which laboratory, non-invasive laboratory and cardiovascular tests should be evaluated in patients in the primary care setting and how to interpret and treat.
• Review integrative medical interventions with nutrition and nutritional recommendations, life style and pharmacology for cardiovascular health.
