CME podcast: Understanding Myocardial Ischemia

In this “ECG Segment: Making Waves” episode of the “Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular CME” podcast, host Anthony Kashou, M.D., interviews Rob MacLeod, Ph.D., co-founder and associate director of the Scientific Computing & Imaging Institute, about the physiological underpinnings of myocardial ischemia.

Dr. MacLeod's research explores the mechanisms and indicators of acute myocardial ischemia using experimental investigations and clinical approaches. During the podcast, he discusses the clinical motivation for basic science research and summarizes the unique methods used in his research. Dr. MacLeod also shares the most meaningful discoveries his group has made, which contradicted the prevailing understanding of ischemia.

Dr. MacLeod also shares his future goals for improving the management of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and explores the use of technology in advancing his research. Listeners will gain valuable insights into the physiological underpinnings of myocardial ischemia, which they can apply directly to their practice.
