Optimal Treatment Strategies for Advanced Heart Failure
Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
7575 East Princess Drive
Scottsdale, Arizona
This is the first course of its kind offered by Mayo Clinic in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area for the treatment of advanced heart failure. Advanced heart failure is a constellation of symptoms resulting in overall poor organ perfusion and ultimately premature death. The intended audience are internists, cardiologists, intensivists, cardiothoracic surgeons, surgical mid-levels, cardiology midlevels, perfusionists, critical care nurses and cardiovascular fellows in training. This course will provide insight into the diagnosis as well as the acute and chronic management of this most devastating disease process. The course will feature experts both locally and nationally in order to enhance the education experience of the attendees.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Decide ideal management of surgical treatment of shock
• Examine patient selection for mechanical circulatory support
• Identify the state of the art surgical and medical approach to acutely decomepensated heart failure
• Review appropriate utilization of ICD and resynchronization therapy in heart failure management
• Illustrate approaches to patients with cardio-renal syndrome and the impact of patient outcomes
• Elaborate on state of the art treatment approaches for patients with variable clinical presentations of acutely decompensated heart failure as it relates to Mechanical Circulatory Support, Cardiac Transplantation, Resynchronization Therapy, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and high risk cardiovascular
