Dynamic Program Chart

The Acute and Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (ASIHD) Learning Pathway has something for everyone. The program includes hot topics like high-sensitivity troponin, cardiogenic shock, genetics and MINOCA, as well as SCAD, state-of-the art diagnosis, STEMI patient management, clinical conundrums, cardiovascular outcomes, and much more.

All providers on the cardiovascular care team will find the ASIHD pathway to be a powerful, creatively structured and informative program. Sessions include many international cardiovascular experts as well as a variety of non-cardiovascular specialists and advanced practice providers.

Sessions make liberal use of case presentations, audience response systems, debates and other innovative, interactive techniques. Widespread use of case-based presentations and debates throughout the program will enliven panel discussions and give attendees the feeling of hands-on learning. The active program will challenge participants to rethink how they would respond not just in new scenarios but in daily clinical practice.

The program includes several hot topics; both spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA), which return from last year for more in-depth discussion. Genetic testing remains an important topic because of its potential influence on the future of cardiovascular medicine, and high sensitivity troponin and acute cardiogenic shock top the chart in high interest. No matter the topic, though, all cardiovascular team members will find sessions to be relevant and stimulating.
