Description

Duration: 135 minutes  

Coronary artery disease is commonly seen in underwriting and interpreting the severity of the disease can pose a challenge to the underwriter.

This lecture will lead you through a look at the anatomy and physiology of the heart with specific reference to coronary artery disease and its impact on mortality. You will learn about some of the diseases and disorders of the coronary arteries, such as ischemic heart disease, angina and heart attack, which are commonly seen in underwriting. You will not only learn about the diseases but also the signs and symptoms, the risk factors, and diagnostic techniques including the latest cardiac enzymes used to confirm a diagnosis of coronary artery disease. You will learn about the treatment required to control the symptoms and the further progression of the disease as well as potential complications of the disease which can worsen the mortality. You will also learn how to read and interpret an angiogram and the information required to classify the risk.

Lastly you will learn how to capture all of this relevant information from the underwriting evidence and how to evaluate the information for mortality impact.
