    165. Narratives in Cardiology: Diversity & Inclusion Via Allyship & Leadership with Dr. Bob Harrington – California Chapter

    165. Narratives in Cardiology: Diversity & Inclusion Via Allyship & Leadership with Dr. Bob Harrington – California Chapter

    CardioNerds (Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder) join CardioNerds Ambassadors Dr. Pablo Sanchez (FIT, Stanford University) and Dr. Christine Shen (FIT, Scripps Clinic) for a discussion with Dr. Bob Harrington (Interventional Cardiologist, Professor of Medicine, and Chair of the Department of Medicine at Stanford University) about diversity and inclusion in the field of cardiology. This episode discusses Dr. Harrington’s broader approach to mentorship, sponsorship, and allyship; and particularly how (and why) he used his position as the president of the American Heart Association to advocate against all-male panels, or “manels.” Listen to the episode to learn the background and motivations behind his evidence-based efforts to make Cardiology a more inclusive field. Special message by California ACC State Chapter President, Dr. Jamal Rana.







    The PA-ACC & CardioNerds Narratives in Cardiology is a multimedia educational series jointly developed by the Pennsylvania Chapter ACC, the ACC Fellows in Training Section, and the CardioNerds Platform with the goal to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in cardiology. In this series, we host inspiring faculty and fellows from various ACC chapters to discuss their areas of expertise and their individual narratives. Join us for these captivating conversations as we celebrate our differences and share our joy for practicing cardiovascular medicine. We thank our project mentors Dr. Katie Berlacher and Dr. Nosheen Reza.

    164. Case Report: “A Good Candidate” Advanced Heart Failure in an 18-year-old Man with Autism Spectrum Disorder – Cleveland Clinic

    CardioNerds (Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder), are joined by guest host Dr. Alex Pipilas (CardioNerds Ambassader, Boston University), and Cleveland Clinic fellows, Dr. Gary Parizher, Dr. Ambreen Ali, and Dr. Tiffany Dong. They discuss a case of an 18-year-old man with Autism Spectrum Disorder presented with advanced nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. Due to anxiety, he was unable to tolerate right heart catheterization, and the initial evaluation for advanced heart failure therapies was deferred. With assistance from a multidisciplinary team, catheterization was successful, and he underwent cardiac transplantation. Faculty experts, Dr. Richard Dane Meredith (Cardiovascular Imaging, Mission healthcare), Dr. Julie Niezgoda (Congenital Cardiac Anesthesiologist, CCF), and Dr. Ran Lee (Critical Care Cardiology and Advanced HF/Transplant Cardiologist, CCF) provide the E-CPR for this episode.

    163. Cardio-Obstetrics: Pregnancy and Anticoagulation with Dr. Katie Berlacher

    163. Cardio-Obstetrics: Pregnancy and Anticoagulation with Dr. Katie Berlacher

    Pregnancy is a hypercoagulable state associated with increased risk of thromboembolism. Managing anticoagulation during pregnancy has implications for both the mother and the fetus. CardioNerd Amit Goyal joins Dr. Akanksha Agrawal (Cardiology Fellow at Emory University), Dr. Natalie Stokes (Cardiology Fellow at UPMC and Co-Chair of the Cardionerds Cardio-Ob series), and Dr. Katie Berlacher (Program Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship and Director of the Women’s Heart Program at UPMC) as they discuss the common indications for anticoagulation and their management before, during, and after pregnancy. In this episode, we focus on management of pregnant patients with mechanical valves and venous thromboembolism.

    Pearls- Pregnancy and Anticoagulation







    * Pregnancy is a hypercoagulable state. Pregnancy-associated VTE is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality.* The use of anticoagulation requires a balance between the risks and benefits to the mother and her fetus.* The agent of choice for anticoagulation during pregnancy depends on the indication, pre-pregnancy dose of vitamin K antagonist (VKA), and the trimester of pregnancy. For instance, patients with mechanical heart valves, warfarin is generally recommended in the first trimester if the daily dose is less than 5 mg and as the first option for all patients with mechanical valves in the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) has not been systematically studied, they do cross the placenta and their safety remains untested.* Warfarin crosses the placenta but is not found in breast milk.

    162. CCC: Critical Care Cardiology – A New Subspecialty for the Modern CCU with Dr. Jason Katz

    162. CCC: Critical Care Cardiology – A New Subspecialty for the Modern CCU with Dr. Jason Katz

    The CardioNerds are thrilled to launch The Cardiac Critical Care Series! The series Co-Chairs – Dr. Mark Belkin (Advanced Heart Failure FIT, U Chicago), Dr. Yoav Karpenshif (FIT, U Penn), Dr. Eunice Dugan (CardioNerds Academy Chief Fellow and FIT, Cleveland Clinic), and Dr. Karan Desai (CardioNerds Academy Editor and FIT, U Maryland) - join CardioNerds Co-Founders, Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder to delve into high-yield topics in critical care cardiology.







    We kickstart this series with one of the early pioneers and national leaders in cardiac critical care – Dr. Jason Katz, Director of Cardiovascular Critical Care and Co-Director of Mechanical Circulatory Support and the CICU at Duke University Medical Center.







    In this episode, we learn about Dr. Katz’s career path and what motivated him to train in Critical Care Cardiology. He shares early struggles, notable changes in this field’s nascent period, and ongoing challenges in training and practice. We discuss collaboration with other cardiac and non-cardiac specialties and their importance in comprehensive care. Furthermore, we discuss how to advance critical care research, including the Critical Care Cardiology Trials Network and future randomized controlled trials to inform our practice and develop standardized protocols. In this small but rapidly growing field, we learn there is much to discover together. Audio editing by CardioNerds Academy Intern, Hirsh Elhence.

    Pearls







    * The best intervention for heart disease is prevention! The InterHeart trial showed that 9 modifiable risk factors (dyslipidemia, smoking, hypertension, diabetes, abdominal obesity, dietary patterns, physical activity, consumption of alcohol, and psychosocial factors) predict 90% of acute myocardial infarction. So many acute events can be prevented1.* Atherosclerotic vascular disease events increase across a range of triglyceride levels, even from 50-200mg/dL. So even in a relatively normal range, lower triglycerides seem to be better. Over ¼ of US adults have triglycerides over 150.

    160. Case Report: An Upstream Cause of Sudden Cardiac Arrest – Cedars-Sinai

    160. Case Report: An Upstream Cause of Sudden Cardiac Arrest – Cedars-Sinai

    CardioNerds (Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder), join CardioNerds FIT Ambassador, Dr. Natasha Cuk and her co-fellows, Dr. Lily Stern, and Dr. Paul Marano from the Cedars-Sinai Cardiology Fellowship for some late afternoon smoothies on the beach. They discuss the case of a 46-year-old woman who presented with sudden cardiac arrest and was ultimately found to have a mobile intraluminal aortic thrombus adherent to a penetrating ulcer in the ascending aorta. This mobile thrombus was ultimately thought to be the cause of transient ischemia and the patient’s cardiac arrest. We discuss a differential for sudden cardiac arrest, initial management after resuscitated cardiac arrest, a differential for arterial thrombus, and review an illness script for penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers. Dr. Dominick Megna provides the provides the E-CPR for this episode. Audio editing by Dr. Gurleen Kaur (Director of the CardioNerds Internship).
