Course Overview

As reported by the American Heart Association, someone dies of cardiovascular disease every sixty seconds in the United States. According to statistics from the Tennessee Department of Health,  Tennessee's leading cause of death is from diseases of the heart. Coronary heart disease affects approximately 13 million Americans and Tennessee remains ranked 44th in cardiovascular deaths and 39th in overall health. In 2010, Tennessee ranked 14th highest state in smoking prevalence and 7th highest obesity prevalence, both of which are contributors to heart disease. Using case-based examples and panel discussion, the Heart, Lung, Vascular Update for Primary Care Providers will focus on these and other health-related issues and offer guidance on treatment outcomes for patients in the area of novel anticoagulant use, minimally invasive treatment of valvular heart disease and the recognition and management of pulmonary hypertension.
