Past Events

Mending Broken Hearts - November 18th, 2016

Mending a broken heart is no small thing and often requires numerous specialties, tools, and tricks to bring about the best outcome for patients. The Greater Edmonton Chapter of CACCN is excited to present our fall education day: Mending Broken Hearts. We had numerous presenters including Dr. Brisebois presenting on trauma resuscitation, Dr. Buchanan speaking on ultrasound utilization in the region, and Dr. Lockwood speaking on cardiac diagnostics and management. It was an exciting session that set hearts racing (narrow complexes, regularly-regular, hopefully!)
