Register Now

Description

Module II: Cardiology will highlight clinical cardiovascular information, through an overview of didactic learning, case studies, clinical applications, therapeutic guidelines, and extensive faculty interaction with top-tier practicing clinicians. Attendees will not only learn the most clinically current research in the field of cardiovascular health, but also understand best practices & protocols for applying educational concepts to other forms of metabolic disease. Sessions will review the causes and mechanisms of hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and metabolic syndrome, in addition to how the conditions are interrelated and connected. The module will also assess various methods of diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment, coupled with an assessment of laboratory evaluations, nutritional treatments, and lifestyle recommendations. Lectures will additionally emphasize the treatment modalities available for hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia, and hypertriglyceridemia, along with abnormal cholesterol fractionation results through a hands-on, case history format.

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
  • 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
  • Review and understand drug-nutrient reactions and interactions in CVD
  • Review how the microbiome induces Cardiovascular disease and inflammation and importance of Diversity
  • Discuss how the microbiome may influence metabolic endotoxemia
  • Identify which organism is associated with cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome      
  • Learn how to assess the microbiome
  • Discuss treatments to improve microbiome health
