    Heart failure

    Heart failure prevalence is high, and rising due to the increasing age of the population. To help you get up-to-date in this increasingly important area, BJC Learning in partnership with the British Society for Heart Failure, has published a comprehensive programme covering all aspects of this growing problem.

    learning-img

    ACS management

    ACS management

    In this learning programme, based on a BJC supplement ‘The post-acute coronary syndrome patient: optimising management’, we learn how to optimise management of the post-acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patient.

    angina

    Angina

    Two million people in the UK have angina and rates are increasing. Accurate diagnosis is not always easy and treatment is often suboptimal. Our programme covers all aspects of this debilitating condition including the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment.

    angiography

    Angiography

    The ability to perform invasive diagnostic coronary angiography is a core requirement for cardiologists and fellows in training programmes. However, although key to their independence is the ability to obtain high-quality images that allow visualisation of the entire coronary vasculature, there exists no formal systematic method or teaching aid. This article provides an overview of the radiological equipment used in the catheter laboratory, details the naming of the different angiographic projections, and gives key tips and tricks to improve image quality. In addition, the coronary vasculature is broken down into segments, with descriptions provided of the essential views required to image each one. Using this approach, it aims to provide an essential aid to trainees and other healthcare professionals at the start of their careers.

    anticoagulation

    Anticoagulation

    Many common problems in clinical practice relate to arterial and venous thrombosis. Our programme will help give you a clear understanding of anticoagulation from the underlying pathways to the new medical treatments and best clinical management.

    Electrolytes: Hyperkalaemia - potassium and the heart

    Electrolytes: Potassium and the heart

    Hyperkalaemia is an often asymptomatic condition, caused by elevated levels of serum potassium, and can cause a number of different heart problems, such as arrhythmia. This podcast will provide an understanding of the causes of hyperkalaemia and how we can manage it, the role of diet and new drugs.
