Improving ECG Competence in Medical Trainees in a UK District General Hospital

Competency in electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation is central to undergraduate and postgraduate clinical training. Studies have demonstrated ECGs are interpreted sub-optimally. Our study compares the effectiveness of two learning strategies to improve competence and confidence. A 1-month prospective randomized study compared the strategies in two cohorts: undergraduate third year medical students and postgraduate foundation year one (FY1) doctors. Read the Full Text

Direct Telephonic Communication in a Heart Failure Transitional Care Program: An observational study
This study investigated the trend of phone calls in the Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center (BGSMC) Heart Failure Transitional Care Program (HFTCP). The primary goal of the HFTCP is to reduce 30-Day readmissions for heart failure patients by using a multi-pronged approach. This study included 104 patients in the HFTCP discharged over a 51-week period who had around-the-clock telephone access to the Transitionalist. Cellular phone records were reviewed. This study evaluated the length and timing of calls.

Bicuspid Pulmonic Valve and Pulmonary Artery Aneurysm
Bicuspid pulmonary valves and pulmonary artery aneurysms are two rare entities, reported in association, and usually attributed to hemodynamic alterations caused by the bicuspid pulmonary valve. We present magnetic resonance images of a patient with a bicuspid pulmonary valve and pulmonary artery aneurysm, and propose an alternative mechanism for this association, based on recent embryologic studies that link anomalies of the semilunar valves and great vessels with derangement of the cardiac neural crest cell development.
