Value-Based Cardiology


The COMPASS trial results could reshape the standard of care for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD), according to Deepak Bhatt, MD, MPH, of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
People who suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest at home are 4 to 5 times less likely to survive than those who experience one in a public location. A new study determined that adopting certain public health initiatives may improve outcomes in communities for these patients.
Compared with the trial results of EUCLID and PEGASUS, the COMPASS trial advances the field of cardiovascular disease in combination therapies, said John Eikelboom, MD, of McMaster University.
A study has found that both recreational and non-recreational activity reduces the risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease, regardless of the country's economic status.
The effects of air pollution on heart health are well known now, and it can be an issue for people in both urban and rural areas of the United States, explained Jeanette Stingone, PhD, of Mount Sinai Health System.
