Patients presenting with suspected cardiovascular disease can be challenging to diagnose and treat. The department of cardiology recognizes this challenge and wishes to offer a venue for providers to participate in case review, with an end goal of consistently delivering evidence based practice. In response to this goal, Dr. Shalev has determined a need to provide ongoing, continuing education for hospital staff who participate in the direct care of adult patients.
This education is designed to examine the diagnosis and intervention of disease states that are studied in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Patient case studies will be presented and discussed, from the point of admission or symptom onset, to diagnosis, to the cardiac catheterization laboratory study/intervention performed, concluding with the patient outcome. When patients in the cases are referred for cardiothoracic and or vascular surgery, those aspects of the cases will also be reviewed. Discussion of interventions will include technique, successes and pitfalls. Our goal is to illustrate best practice.
