- Medication information for cardiac drugs only, with doses/routes/indications/warnings, as well as basic physiology (including important concepts like adrenergic receptors and what they do)
- Interpretation of common values in the CCU, including PA catheter hemodynamics, oxygenation, and the basics of ventilator management
- Physical exam information, including analysis of murmurs, maneuvers, and common findings
Pre-operative evaluation basics, including algorithms
- The rhythm analyzer – a searchable database of heart rhythms with definitions and clinical significance; can be narrowed by various features (QRS width, regularity, etc) to help you focus in on a diagnosis. Includes information on mechanisms of electrical initiation and conduction within the heart.
- Almost 20 risk calculators and assessment tools, for various conditions including MI, angina, PE, a-fib, CHF and for procedures such as PCI and CABG – and many others
- 100+ of the most important cardiology trials, summarized and categorized, with as much detail as you want. This information is the foundation of much of what we do in cardiology, and is fertile pimping material. No extraneous information – just what you need to know
