MARCO Grand Rounds for July 23, 2017

From Warren KD4GUA:

Last Sunday we transmitted during the SOLAR STORM but managed to get some info in on the Impella 5 cardiac pump.  If you missed it you can read about this incredible device in AETHER, not the latest in August but in the October edition.  
   This Sunday we will discuss ATRIAL FIBRILLATION & the “Watchman Device” used to replace anticoagulents in non-valvular atrial fib.  It is CUTTING EDGE.

MARCO Grand Rounds for July 16, 2017

From Warren KD4GUA:

THIS SUNDAY we will take you, a novice cardiac interventionist, into the realm of modern medicine to give you an inkling as to what is going on with
IMPELLA,  a flow assist device and perhaps with time, TAVR, replacing aortic stenotic valves though peripheral vessels…sounds exciting—it is!  I hope we can have
Art KK1Y on board, a thoracic surgeon, who has first hand experience in this field.  Should be FUN.

MARCO Grand Rounds for July 9, 2017

From Warren KD4GUA:

Last Sunday we placed you in the position of the ER doc with a fellow named “Scott” coming in with weird bizarre pains and you were asked to make the diagnosis..this Sunday we will follow through with more details on a rather rare but frightening diagnosis….DISSECTION OF THE AORTA.  It is out there waiting for you to stumble…tune in Sunday 14.342, 11 am Eastern to brush away the cobwebs.  Should be fun.

MARCO Grand Rounds for June 18, 2017

From Warren KD4GUA:

WE WILL DISCUSS “NSAIDS” on Sunday.  Once considered SAFE drugs, the FDA released new warnings in 2015 relating to dangers of initiating hart attacks and strokes.
Controversial?    Add your two cents worth.  The more the merrier.

MARCO Grand Rounds for May 14, 2017

From Warren, KD4GUA:

This Sunday we will discuss a very important subject. INAPPROPRIATE DRUGS IN THE ELDERLY & THE BEERS CRITERIA.”
THIS is extra important because Yale researches have recently found nearly 1/3 of medications approved by the FDA over the past 10 years 
 had later warnings & advisories.  The drug you thought was safe should now be viewed as a “probable.”  Scary!
