    233. Cardio-Oncology: The Need for Cardio-Oncology with Dr. Bonnie Ky

    233. Cardio-Oncology: The Need for Cardio-Oncology with Dr. Bonnie Ky

    CardioNerds (Amit Goyal and Dan Ambinder), Series Co-Chair Dr. Dinu Balanescu (Academy House Faculty and Chief Resident at Beaumont Hospital), and Episode Lead Dr. Manu Mysore (Former CardioNerds Ambassador and Cardiologist at the University of Maryland) discuss The Need for Cardio-Oncology with Expert Faculty Dr. Bonnie Ky, Director of Penn Cardio-Oncology Translation Center of Excellence and Editor-in-Chief of JACC CardioOncology. Audio editing by CardioNerds Academy Intern, student doctor Yousif Arif.







    Cardio-Oncology is a burgeoning field. There is a need for cardiologists and oncologists to work together in a multidisciplinary fashion using multi-modality imaging and personalized medicine. Cardiologists in particular need to understand basic oncology, anti-cancer therapies, and address risk factors which play an important role in oncologic progression and/or adverse cardiovascular events. The field can only be furthered by research with a focus on specificity of endpoints and multidisciplinary collaboration. The future of the field is in the hands of investigators and clinicians alike.







    This CardioNerds Cardio-Oncology series is a multi-institutional collaboration made possible by contributions of stellar fellow leads and expert faculty from several programs, led by series co-chairs, Dr. Giselle Suero Abreu, Dr. Dinu Balanescu, and Dr. Teodora Donisan.

    Show notes - Challenging Cases - Atrial Fibrillation with Dr. Hugh Calkins







    Case #1 Synopsis:







    A woman in her mid-60s presents with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). An echocardiogram has demonstrated that she has a structurally normal heart. Her primary care doctor had started Metoprolol 50 mg twice a day but she has remained symptomatic. In office, an EKG confirms AF, but she converts to sinus while there. She is seeking advice to prevent further episodes and in general wants to avoid additional medications







    Case #2 Takeaways







    * We discussed several potential options for treatment. Amongst the first things we discussed was amiodarone. In a patient of this nature without structural heart disease and under the age of 70, Dr. Calkins discussed that he would probably consider a...

Fantastic review even for PCPs

I’m a family doc at an FQHC and take care of a lot of patients with heart disease. I just discovered this podcast and find it super useful even for a non-cardiology audience. Kudos to the Cardionerds team!

Ok

If you didn’t know, they work at the Cleveland clinic.

Awesome podcast

Amazing podcast overall. The content is awesome. However, I’m not a fan of the excessive praises before and after every comment, it sounds fake, like you’re all just brown nosing each-other. Also, I’ve probably listened to like 30+ episodes, and I never heard anyone disagree with someone else. (I’m sure there has been tho). Seems to be a lot of prewritten statements and praises. The dialogue thus seems manufactured. Keep it up but dare to disagree and have some authentic dialogue/debate. Disagreement isn’t the same as disrespect.
