Date:5/11/2010

NEW YORK, NY MAY 11, 2010 Complex issues in interventional cardiology that impact nurses and technicians in the cardiac catherization lab will be the focus of the 19th Annual Nurse and Technologist Symposium, September 21-22, 2010, in Washington, DC. The symposium is being held in conjunction with Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2010, the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation.

"Changes are occurring very rapidly in interventional cardiology in terms of new and updated procedures, pharmacologic therapy and advancing technologies," said Marian Hawkey, RN, Course Director and Coordinator, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Program, Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. "It is vital for everyone in the cath lab to be aware of these changes. We will address the latest issues that Interventional Cardiology health care professionals need to know and understand in order to effectively treat patients."

The Nurse and Technologist Symposium will cover a broad spectrum of issues including:

  • Reducing Bleeding or Reducing Ischemia: Which takes Priority?
  • Understanding the Differences between Clopidogrel and Prasugrel
  • Transcatheter valve therapies
  • Impact of tobacco products on endothelial health and treatment options for nicotine addiction
  • Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists Review Course including a "Hands on Hearts" session
  • The challenges of treating Acute Myocardial Infarctions

The keynote address will be given by Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, an international pioneer in cardiovascular medicine.

The Course Directors for the Symposium are Marian Hawkey, RN, and Thomas H. Maloney, MS, RCIS. The Course Co-Directors are Russell Brandwein PA-C, Michael Guiry MBA, PA-C, Nancy Houston-Miller RN, Christopher Nelson RN and Hilary Nierenberg MPH, NP.

In 2009, TCT was held in San Francisco for the first time in its history, where it attracted a record number of attendees. 99.4% of attendees surveyed stated that TCT increased their knowledge to improve their practice.
