Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Obstetrics/Gynecology Volume 60, Issue 02: Women and Heart Disease.

The goals of this program are to improve the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in women. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Create a flowchart displaying the differential diagnosis and evaluation of syncope.

2. Rank the diagnostic yield of tests commonly performed to evaluate patients with syncope.

3. Design a lifestyle, medication, and exercise treatment plan for a patient with vasovagal syncope.

4. Counsel a patient considering a bariatric procedure on her risk for cardiovascular complications.

5. Maximize information obtained from stress echocardiography as a preoperative screen in patients who are candidates for bariatric 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.
