As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to:   REVIEW the mechanisms of action of the major medication classes utilized in the 2018 multi-society cholesterol guidelines; and UNDERSTAND the influence of the new cardiovascular outcomes trials for ezetimibe and the PCSK9 inhibitors on the new cholesterol guidelines; DEMONSTRATE understanding of key atherosclerotic risk and risk-enhancing factors as well as of recent pivotal lipid lowering treatment guidelines; and SELECT the appropriate target of lipid lowering therapy (e.g. LDL-C or non-HDL-C) with respect to the patient’s comorbid metabolic conditions.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Cholesterol level goals
  • Indications for medical treatment of lipids
  • Follow-up of patients started on cholesterol lowering drugs
  • Monitoring of cholesterol lowering drugs
  • CRP and other inflammatory markers

Description

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Preventative Cardiology. 

At the completion of this activity, the learner should demonstrate understanding of several pivotal lipid lowering treatment guidelines with focus on the 2018 multisociety Guideline on the Management of Blood Cholesterol.  The learner should be able to identify key clinical risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease as well as “risk enhancing” comorbid medical conditions and/or diagnostic data.  The learner should select the appropriate target of lipid lowering therapy (e.g. LDL-C or non-HDL-C) with respect to the patient’s comorbid metabolic conditions.
