I gave the cardiology fellows at St John Hospital and Medical Center a lecture on cardiorenal syndrome this morning. I revised and expanded the lecture I used for the residents:
- I added my rant regarding the Ronco’s codification of cardiorenal syndrome
- I added the latest NEJM article on diuretic strategies
- I included a section on extracorporeal ultrafiltration and the UNLOAD trial.
We also had an interesting discussion on the data suggesting that loop diuretics maybe harmful in acute decompensated heart failure. I should include a couple of slides on that.
Overall a significant upgrade. You can find the lecture in the usual place.
