Mending a Broken Heart: Cardiovascular Challenges in Toxicology
Do you struggle with managing patients in the age of ever-evolving clinical “dogma?” Join us at the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology (NACCT) for this one-day ACMT Pre-Symposium, with leading experts who will get to the HEART of the matter: Huffing, Electrical conduction disturbances, Antidotal therapy, Refractory shock, Troponin’s role in diagnosis--and much more! We’ll explore historical and current controversies as well as the latest research relevant to toxicology. Lectures will be interspersed with heart-stopping debates and case-oriented expert panel discussions. The faculty for this exciting program will share their clinical and research-based expertise and perspective. Register now to keep your finger on the pulse of best practices in cardiovascular toxicology!
After participating in this program, learners will be able to:
- Describe the cardiovascular toxicity of plant sodium channel openers.
- Discuss therapeutic controversies in the use of sodium bicarbonate as an antidote.
- Identify the role of high-sensitivity troponin as a biomarker of cardiac toxicity.
- Assess the evidence-based merits of adjunctive therapies in the setting of toxin-mediated vasodilatory shock.
