CPD On Demand offers you the flexibility to watch all our live CPD events, whenever and wherever you want! 

Arrhythmia

Overview: In this recorded webinar we explore common arrhythmias:

  • AF
  • A Flutter
  • SVTs
  • Paced rhythms

Learning outcomes: We look at what patients present with and how to investigate, paying attention to Red Flags.

             

Speaker: Dr Eiry Edmunds, Consultant Cardiologist, Hywel Dda UHB.

Facilitated by: Dr Nicola Flower GP CPD Lead.

Recorded: March 2022  Duration: 51 Minutes

Atrial Fibrillation

Overview: Atrial Fibrillation is the commonest of all sustained cardiac arrhythmias and affects up to 1% of the adult population rising to nearly 10% of those over the age of 75. It is a major cause of morbidity and mortality mainly through enhancing the risk of major strokes which are largely avoidable. In addition to increasing the risk of stroke by up to five times, Atrial Fibrillation also increases the risk of heart failure and vascular dementia and can have a very negative impact on quality of life and lifespan.

This recorded webinar focuses on the updated NICE guidance published April 2021 on the detection, management and shared care approach to patients with AF offering a personalised care plan to those affected. Although most patients with AF will be seen and managed within primary care, the webinar will clarify when and why to refer some patients to specialist services within secondary and tertiary care and what can be offered.

Learning outcomes: Participants will feel increased confidence and competence at dealing with AF and several case studies will be covered. 

            

Speaker: Dr Lena Izzat, Consultant Cardiologist and Atrial Fibrillation Lead, Hywel Dda UHB.

Facilitated by: Dr Nicola Flower GP CPD Lead.

Recorded: January 2022  Duration: 58 Minutes

ECGs

Overview: Do you ever look at ECG and think: ‘No, sorry, no idea’?

Learning outcomes: ECGs often terrify people so we hope this webinar will enable you to understand better the “nuts and bolts” of ECGs and dispel the myth that ECGs are difficult to understand. We will review normal ECGs so that abnormalities can be identified easily and understood. 

               

Speaker: Dr Eiry Edmunds, Consultant Cardiologist, Hywel Dda UHB.

Facilitated by: Dr Nicola Flower GP CPD Lead.

Recorded: March 2022  Duration: 47 Minutes

Heart Failure

Overview: Heart failure affects nearly one million people in the UK and the road to diagnosis is often lengthy and convoluted. The result is a significant cost to the NHS. Heart failure accounts for approximately 2% of the total NHS budget and 5% of unplanned admissions per year. Delays in diagnosis are common but avoidable.

Learning outcomes: We cover Heart Failure (with reduced ejection fraction, primarily) and focus on some of the most recent advances in medical therapy and foster a new way of thinking about the management of Heart Failure focussing on the patient’s quality of life and long term prognosis.

 

  

 

Speaker: Dr Lena Izzat, Consultant Cardiologist and Atrial Fibrillation Lead, Hywel Dda UHB.
