Case Objectives

Objectives - Case 8 - Brown and Anderson - Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Congestive Heart Failure


  1. Differentiate and prioritize the presentation, causes for restrictive, hypertrophic an dilated cardiomyopathy.
  2. Describe and understand the symptoms and clinical diagnosis of restrictive, hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy.
  3. Analyze and critique the etiologies and treatment options for cardiomyopathy patients at risk for sudden death.
  4. Discuss and recognize psychosocial and systemic factors that may impact progression and therapeutic interventions for these heart conditions.
  5. Generate and justify a treatment plan for dilated cardoiomyopathy with systolic dysfunction

Congestive Heart Failure

  1. Diagram and critique pressure and volume changes in the right and left ventricles during the cardiac cycle for a normal individual and a patient with congestive heart failure (CHF).
  2. Construct a differential diagnosis for CHF and discuss its pathophysiology and etiologies.
  3. Discuss and evaluate the relationship between pulmonary hypertension and congestive heart failure.<
  4. Discuss and evaluate heart failure with normal and decreased left ventricular ejection fraction.
  5. Critique the processes by which primary cardiovascular disease can lead to co-morbidity.
  6. Distinguish and integrate the knowledge of drug classes, molecular mechanisms and side effects of drugs used for CHF.
