Paul Friedman, M.D., chair of Mayo Clinic’s Department of Cardiology in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses how to foster an environment of ECG innovation to improve patient care.
Cardiac intensivist Adam May, M.D., and host Anthony Kashou, M.D., examine the underpinning principles behind the various differentiation algorithms and criteria that help clinicians properly distinguish wide complex tachycardias.
Two years ago, when 29-year-old Meckenzie Tinaglia experienced a series of seizure-like events shortly after a cardiac ablation procedure, she knew her heart was to blame. Her local providers, however, weren’t convinced. If not for Mayo Clinic remote cardiac monitoring and the data it provided on the potentially fatal arrythmia Meckenzie was experiencing, the busy wife and young mother might not have survived.
Cardiac electrophysiologist Konstantinos Siontis, M.D., joins Anthony Kashou, M.D., to discuss hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and whether regular electrocardiogram screenings can protect athletes from this structural disease of the heart.
Mayo Clinic cardiologist Allan Jaffe, M.D., discusses how electrocardiograms can help clinicians interpret high-sensitivity cardiac troponin levels in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
Physician, inventor. and serial entrepreneur David E. Albert, M.D., joins Anthony Kashou, M.D., for a discussion on the changing role of remote cardiac monitoring solutions in patient care.
After being diagnosed with multiple heart conditions, including a heart murmur, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and a left bundle branch block, Mitch Prust agreed to participate in a remote cardiovascular monitoring study. The study involved having a small device implanted under his skin to continuously record heart rhythm data. One day Mitch experienced a strange fall and reached out to his Mayo Clinic cardiology team to see if the device picked up any unusual heart activity around the same time. The loop recorder data showed that Mitch’s heart had stopped beating for 10 seconds.
Cardiac electrophysiologist and director of Mayo Clinic’s Heart Rhythm and Physiological Monitoring Laboratory, Peter Noseworthy, M.D., joins host Anthony Kashou, M.D., to discuss the use of artificial intelligence-augmented ECG algorithms at Mayo Clinic.
For patients with cardiac arrhythmia, which can cause palpitations, sudden loss of consciousness, and even death, inpatient cardiac monitoring allows doctors to observe their heart rhythms in real time and respond when a life-threatening arrhythmia is detected. For decades, cardiologists at Mayo Clinic have performed real-time cardiac monitoring on inpatients, using this data to guide treatment decisions. For patients outside the hospital, however, there has been no means to detect and respond to dangerous rhythms in real time.
Hennepin Healthcare’s Stephen Smith, M.D., joins host Anthony Kashou, M.D., to discuss STEMI versus non-STEMI and occlusion vs. nonocclusion myocardial infarction.
Journal of Electrocardiology editor-in-chief Adrian Baranchuk, M.D., joins Anthony Kashou, M.D., and Peter Noseworthy, M.D., to discuss why the electrocardiogram continues to be the easiest and fastest way of recording electrical signals of the heart.
Ian Rowlandson, chief scientist of diagnostic cardiology for GE Healthcare, joins Anthony Kashou, M.D., and Peter Noseworthy, M.D., to discuss how computerized electrocardiography software has improved ECG interpretation and the understanding of electrophysiology.
