Learning Objectives

  • Understand the role of endothelial dysfunction, nitric oxide, angiotensin II and aldosterone in atherosclerosis, CHD and CVD
  • Understand how inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune dysfunction promote CVD and CHD
  • Be familiar with the pathways of vascular aging, pathogenesis, and how they relate to the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, CHD and CVD
  • 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 the diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia in clinical practice
  • Present, review and discuss clinical cases on hypertension, dyslipidemia, CHD and CVD
  • Measure the 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 reduce BP and decrease CVD
  • Treat with nutrition, supplements and drugs for CHD and CHF
  • Understand the role of vascular biology in atherosclerosis vascular disease, CHD and CVD
  • Review and understand the role of the microbiome in CVD
  • Review and understand the role of insulin resistance, obesity, inflammation and diabetes in CVD
