Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Cardiology & Resuscitation (JEMS)

Students will understand the importance of this formula in a medical and trauma patient scenario, will gain a good understanding of obtaining the numbers of the formula, and will gain a knowledge of cardiac output for the patient. They will also gain an understanding of how cardiac output is used in another formula such as blood pressure. We will also highlight some of the cardiac diseases that affect a patients cardiac output and ejection fraction.
