Cardiology Algorithms and Clinical Pearls

Dr. Elizabeth Klodas has developed a guide to assist in the initial work-up and management of common cardiac conditions and common cardiac complaints.  It is hoped that this guide will serve as a valuable practical tool in the care of patients with suspected or established cardiac disease.

The algorithms and management guidelines are based upon extensive published data, published algorithms, and clinical experience.  Nevertheless, this guide is not intended as a substitute for clinical judgment, and the algorithms/management suggestions may not be appropriate for all patients.  If the user of this guide is uncertain about appropriate care of a specific patient, cardiology consultation maybe appropriate.
