Advances in Coronary Physiology Course


General Admission (Physicians, Healthcare Professionals)

2 Day course general admission pass covers registration, meals and refreshments. After course free access to online course resources including powerpoint images, course videos, and links to other Simple Education resources.


Attend this course if you wish to learn about the latest developments in coronary physiology, including iFR (instantaneous wave-free ratio), FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) and CFR (Coronary Flow Reserve) from the worlds leading physiologists.


Advances in Coronary Physiology course provides all you need to know to understand the basics of coronary physiology and what you need to do to implement coronary physiology into the cardiac catheter laboratory.


This educational activity is intended for an international audience, specifically interventional cardiologists and cardiologists. However, other healthcare professionals involved in the care of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients will also find this topical.


  • Understanding the background of coronary physiology
  • Understanding of coronary blood flow regulation in unobstructed and obstructed coronary arteries
  • Learn what you need to know to implement iFR and FFR in your laboratory 
  • Learn about the guidelines for appropriate use and reimbursement


  • Welcome and introductions 
  • The role of intra-coronary physiology in 2015?       
  • Intra-coronary physiology: Past, present and future           
  • Terminology and descriptions of the index abbreviations
  • Why do we use pressure instead of flow - intra-coronary pressure flow relationships?  
  • Discuss the role of basal flow for coronary stenosis assessment
  • An introduction to iFR: concepts, principals, and limitations
  • FFR Basics and Optimal Technique
  • Tips, tricks, and pitfalls of physiology assessment
  • Detecting ischaemia using resting or hyperaemic indices all give similar results
  • DEFER, FAME, FAME II – the key points
  • DEFER, FAME, FAME II – what they didn’t answer
  • Challenging cases from the audience/faculty?
  • Implementation of physiology into the catheter laboratory
