Sunil Mankad, MD, FACC, FASE, FCCP
This will be a case based presentation that will help answer common Cardiology questions such as the following: 1) What do I do with an elevated troponin in patients without ECG changes or symptoms? 2) How should I use the high-sensitivity troponin assay? 3) What do I do with my patient who has stress induced cardiomyopathy? 4) In patients with CAD preparing for noncardiac surgery, how do I stratify and reduce their risk?
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
1. Manage the diagnostic evaluative approach of a patient with an elevated troponin.
2. Distinguish the underlying mechanism and treatment of stress induced cardiomyopathy.
3. Manage the diagnostic evaluative approach of a patient with cardiac risk factors undergoing non-cardiac surgery.
