Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 02: Topics in Cardiology.

The goals of this program are to improve the management of cardiovascular (CV) complications after cancer therapy, the care of adults with congenital heart disease (CHD), and the preoperative evaluation of cardiac patients for noncardiac surgery. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Identify CV complications that may arise from chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer.
2. Prescribe preventive therapy for patients exposed to high-risk chemotherapeutic agents.
3. Diagnose common forms of CHD seen in adult patients.
4. Perform appropriate follow-up of patients with CHD and screen for CV complications.
5. Perform a preoperative evaluation of CV risk in cardiac patients about to undergo noncardiac surgery.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
