ACS Trials Free for Ipad Publisher's description
from Michael Nassif
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) are the most exhaustively studied clinical entities today.
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) are the most exhaustively studied clinical entities today. Advances in pharmacotherapy and procedural technique over the past thirty years have led to an explosion of clinical literature, which can be daunting and confusing for the caretaker of a patient with anginal symptoms.
ACS Trials brings you thorough, focused, MD-written summaries of over 60 seminal trials of ACS that have given rise to current practice. Its easy-to-use interface and layout provide quickly accessible one-liner soundbitesвЂ™ as well as deeper analysis and historical context of landmark trials in cardiology.
Each trial summary contains:
в†ќ Take Home Message
в†ќ Trial Summary
в†ќ Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria
в†ќ Baseline Patient Characteristics
в†ќ Funding, if applicable
в†ќ ACC/AHA Guidelines resulting from the study
в†ќ References, with links to the abstract and study full-text
Trials are sortable by name, date of publication, and subject; can be filtered by ACS subtype; and are discoverable via a convenient search feature which indexes keywords, generic and brand names, and more.
The app also includes over 30 medical calculators, courtesy of MediMath, for many cardiology-related risk assessment tools and formulas, including:
- ACS risk assessment (TIMI, GUSTO)
- CRUSADE bleeding risk
- Contrast-induced nephropathy risk
- Hemodynamic calculators (CO, SVR, etc.)
- Lipid management (ATP III guidelines, Framingham risk, etc.)
- EKG criteria (Sgarbossa, Brugada, QTc, etc.)
The writers for ACS Trials, a cardiology fellow and three internal medicine residents at Washington University in St. Louis, are passionate about cardiology and clinical study and pay particular attention to trials in the context of the ACC/AHA Guidelines. As such, our customers can expect frequent focused updates on the trials of ACS.
Whether youвЂ™re a medical student whose attending is asking вЂњWhatвЂ™s the evidence for aspirin?вЂќ, a nurse practitioner wondering why to continue the eptifibatide drip when the stent is already in place, a cardiology fellow who canвЂ™t remember the loading dose of ticagrelor, or cath fellow making sure youвЂ™re right about bivalirudin before the interventionalist yells at you, ACS Trials is a must-have.
