PPP049 - Therapeutic Guidelines: Cardiovascular version 7
Jane caught up with two members of the writing group for the recently updated Therapeutic Guidelines: Cardiovascular. Confusingly, they are also called Jane and Dan! Jane O'Connor is an Editor at Therapeutic Guidelines and Dr Daniel Scherer is a Cardiologist and PhD Candidate at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
We talk about:
- The process for writing the Therapeutic Guidelines
- Some of the topics that have had extensive review in this edition: urgent management of blood pressure, anticoagulation in extremes of weight, peri-procedural management of anticoagulation, pulmonary hypertension
- The current thinking around lipid modification
You can read more about the Therapeutic Guidelines and order your copy of the new Cardiovascular Guideline from the TG website.
