This course is designed for physicians (internal medicine, family medicine, endocrinologists, general medicine, and OB-GYN), pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare professionals interested in learning about the advancements of preventative and anti-aging medicine.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Understand the role of endothelial dysfunction, nitric oxide, angiotensin II and aldosterone in atherosclerosis, CHD and CVD
- Understand how inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune dysfunction promote CVD and CHD
- Be familiar with the pathways of vascular aging, pathogenesis, and how they relate to the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, CHD and CVD
- Understand and apply advanced lipid testing (lipid particle number and size and HDL functionality and quality) for the diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia in clinical practice
- Present, review and discuss clinical cases on hypertension, dyslipidemia, CHD and CVD
- Measure the three finite vascular responses (inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune function), plasma renin activity (PRA) and aldosterone to select optimal integrative anti-hypertensive therapy to reduce BP and decrease CVD
- Review and understand the role of the microbiome in CVD
- Review diet, lifestyle, and nutraceutical options for clinically managing dyslipidemia, cardiovascular inflammation, homocysteine, insulin resistance, and related conditions
