Course Overview

Cardiac drugs as a class are the most commonly prescribed drugs in the US. Lipitor, a statin drug to treat cholesterol is the most commonly prescribed drug. Several hypertension drugs are also in the top ten prescribed. This seminar examines major cardiac drugs and the dangers Chinese medical practitioners need to be aware of when combining with herbs and acupuncture.

 

We will look at various types of biomedical treatments for hypertension, arrhythmia, high cholesterol, and coagulative states. Herb-drug acupuncture-drug interactions will be explored for each type of drug. Each of the following drug classes will be explored: antihypertensive agents, anti-hyperlipidemic agents, anti-arrhythmics, and anticoagulants.

Objectives

  • Understand how cardiac drugs and herbs interact.

  • Identify the most common cardiac drugs with potential for drug-herb interactions.

Disclaimers

Please read these important disclaimers before purchasing:

  • *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.

    If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.

    We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.

    Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.

    If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
