2019 ACOI Exploring New Science in Cardiovascular Medicine

This activity is designed for general cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and electrophysiologists in clinical practice. At the completion of this program, learners will be able to:
- Define the clinical value of biomarkers in the DX and TX of heart failure;
- Discuss the optimal uses of LVAD technology for HF;
- Identify how advanced imaging techniques can improve early intervention in the ED and outcomes;
- Establish a patient-centered approach left atrial appendage occlusion vs. anticoagulant therapies;
- Discuss and evaluate the rationale behind the latest guidelines for hypertension in patients with T2DM;
- Apply case-derived insights to the use of anticoagulants.
