Don't miss our monthly educational review #EHJACVC @ESC_Journals!

This month by the great @ArgaizR: fluids in #AKI
Co-starring: @ThinkingCC @khaycock2

Extremely proud that our journal offers a platform to 3 great clinicians & Twitter educators. I always learn from them... Image
A strong argument is made to switch mainstream thinking in #AKI away from the fallacious concept of fluid responsiveness in all to a primary assessment of fluid tolerance.

Probably the most important thing I have learned on Twitter: #VExUS Image
Why do I like #VExUS so much? Because it really changed my everyday practice... Portal vein became part of my standard #echocardiography assessment.

And that's what we want to achieve with this review, offer something directly applicable at your bedside! Image

#BSEcho2020 Dr. Bushra Rana @ImperialNHS on 3D Assessment of MR
....Type 1: Annular dilatation
....Type 2: Leaflet Proplapse
....Type 3: :leaflet restriction
✅Severity Assessment
✅Haemodynamic consequences
#BSEcho2020 ✅Severity Assessment
↔️Elliptical orifice (average Vena contract in orthogonal views)
↔️Multiple jets (3D Vena contract area)
↔️Late systolic jets (Volumetric methods)
Integrative approach to grading MR severity
VC area x MR VTI = Regurg Vol
#BSEcho2020 ✅Importance of haemodynamic consequences on outcome
or LVEF <60% but >30%, LVEDd >45 mm
- AF, systolic PAP > 50 mmHg, LA > 60mls/m2, flail segment

#Doctors and #Medicine need an #AI update.
Bold and convincing book.

#ArtificialIntelligence has the ability to bring the fourth industrial revolution. Healthcare is deemed to be an industry which can get transformed the most.

@EricTopol is a #cardiologist, historian of the present and a #MedicalFuturist.
He believes that the way we practice medicine now ( #ShallowMedicine ) relies too heavily on human inputs and is thus plagued by human biases and imperfections.
