Surprise! We’re back…and talking all things cardiovascular…


Rounds Table Listeners, we’ve got some good news for you… the Rounds Table is back!

John and I have decided to pick up where Kieran and his excellent team left off; to continue to bring you regular podcasts on the latest and greatest internal medicine research. This reboot wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of Healthy Debate; thank you!

For our first episode of the reboot, we’re talking all things cardiovascular.

Classic Rapid Fire format…4 papers…here we go!

  1. Is there a safe way to manage direct oral anticoagulants for patients undergoing surgical procedures? (https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/article-abstract/2740207)


  1. What is the relationship between white coat hypertension and cardiovascular events? (https://annals.org/aim/article-abstract/2735719/cardiovascular-events-mortality-white-coat-hypertension-systematic-review-meta-analysis)


  1. What is the association between thrombectomy for acute stroke and length of stay? (https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/STROKEAHA.119.025165)


  1. Can machine learning identify patients with atrial fibrillation from a normal ECG? (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(19)31721-0/fulltext)
