In-Office Applications of Regenerative Therapies: Focus on Cardiovascular, Vascular, and Respiratory Conditions
This module will review disease background, statistics, etiology, current standard of care, and controversies surrounding cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions including: myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis, peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis, asthma, COPD, and interstitial lung disease. And despite advances, restoring function to these damaged systems remains a formidable challenge. This module aims to educate on the recent regenerative research that suggests the adult, embryonic, cardiopoietic, and vascular stem cells may be able to replace damaged heart muscle cells and/or establish new blood vessels to supply them. This module's curriculum will analyze the various cell therapies to gain knowledge on the treatment strategies including patient selection, diagnosis, risks, and benefits.
Upon completion of the module, the participant will:
- Review disease background, statistics, etiology and current standards of care for cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions including: myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis, peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), interstitial lung disease and more
- Recognize the structure, function, and mechanisms of action governing pulmonary cells, cardiopoietic stem cells, and vascular stem cells
- Discuss the cell therapies available for cardiovascular, vascular, and pulmonary conditions utilizing various cell types (embryonic, umbilical, fetal, mesenchymal, etc.) and the delivery methods available
- Discuss the mechanism of action, structure, and function of pulmonary cells, and vascular and cardiopoietic stem cells
