PHRM 758 - Advanced Cardiovascular Pharmacology

Prerequisites, PHRM 511 , PHRM 531 , PHRM 592 , PHRM 622 , PHRM 622L , PHRM 631 , PHRM 641 , doctor of pharmacy major. Cardiovascular disease is a disorder of the circulatory system including the heart and blood vessels, which may ultimately affect functions of the lungs, brain, kidneys or other parts of the body. This elective course is intended to explore the limitations of our current understanding and pharmacological option. Advanced topics in heart and vascular pathology from the most recent scientific articles will be discussed. Although the mortality of heart disease and stroke has decreased, the burden of disease remains high. The 2016 Statistical Update, based on 2013 data, highlights the importance of continuous monitoring both cardiovascular health and disease in our population, including young adults. There is still 1 death in every 40 seconds attributable to cardiovascular diseases, and 32.6% of US adults still have hypertension. Our discussion-based activity will allow student pharmacists to understand the opportunity for future pharmacological options in the cardiovascular diseases. P/NP. (Offered every year.) 1 credit
