Review of Cardiovascular Diseases
What dental professionals need to know about cardiovascular disease
Live, Interactive Webcast Continuing Education Course - 3 Hours Credit
Instructor: Dr. Joanne Conaway, N.D., B.S.N., R.N.
Our heart and lungs (the cardiovascular and respiratory systems) are critical for life. Understanding the role of these systems helps increase our awareness of the importance of their function and what is responsible for their failure.
As dental professionals, many of our patients come to our offices suffering cardiovascular challenges. Understanding the pathology of the various cardiovascular diseases can help us in more safely treating these indiiduals within our offices. In addition, having an appreciation of the etiology of cardiovascular disease can help us in reducing our personal risk of acquiring a cardiovascular disease as well assist us in becoming a better educator for our patients.
After completing this course, the clinician will be able to:
- Discuss Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) with an understanding of basic physiology and function.
- Describe conditions that predispose individuals to increased CAD risk.
- Recognize the relationship between the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
- Discuss common respiratory diseases with an understanding of symptoms
- Recognize common drugs and current treatment modalities related to cardio vascular and respiratory diseases.
- Identify life style changes that improve cardiovascular and respiratory health.
- Explain the impact of periodontal disease on cardiac and respiratory health
