Clinical Communities

Clinical Communities are special interest areas that present original material created by an editorial board of key opinion leaders with expertise in a particular topic. In addition to news and information culled from CardioSource, material available on this site includes article summaries, case challenges, new and emerging "hot topics," video interviews, and "Learn from the Experts," webinars and papers.

In addition, visitors are encouraged to respond to poll questions, provide their assessment of case challenges, participate in discussion groups, and respond to blog questions and issues. We invite you to review these Communities regularly, as content is updated frequently. We also invite you to participate in the Community discussions.
  • Anticoagulation Management

    The Anticoagulation Management Community will discuss topics related to the entire class of novel oral anticoagulants. We want to offer our perspective, as well as hear about your unique experiences, opinions, and questions.

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    This community addresses atrial fibrillation topics that are relevant to routine and advanced practice. We want to build a collaborative community that facilitates interaction between clinical disciplines (e.g. general cardiovascular, electrophysiology specialists and others).

  • Cardiac Biomarkers

    This community addresses biomarker topics that are relevant to routine and advanced practice. We want to build a collaborative community that facilitates interaction between clinical disciplines (e.g. cardiovascular, emergency medicine, and laboratory providers), as well as between clinicians, and researchers.

  • Cardiac Rhythm Management

    This community addresses cardiac rhythm management topics that are relevant to routine and advanced practice, and will focus on topics such as the appropriate use of devices in the management of rhythm issues, recent consensus statements from HRS and ACC on device selection for patients receiving pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization, and device indications, and other similar subjects. We want to build a collaborative community that facilitates interaction between clinical disciplines.

  • Cardiometabolic Disease

    The Cardiometabolic Disease Community will help to further educate clinicians on important connections between diabetes and other cardiometabolic conditions such as hypertension and dyslipidemia and CV disease. We will highlight new strategies aimed to screen for these problems, detect those at highest risk to prioritize treatment, and identify newer and emerging therapies that have the potential for significant clinical benefit. The Cardiometabolic Clinical Community will help educate and empower clinicians with the information and tools they need to help reach these targets.

  • Chronic Angina

    The Chronic Angina Community will discuss topics related to current and relevant aspects of stable ischemic heart disease, including the variations in symptoms and clinical characteristics that present with this prevalent condition. We want to offer our perspective, as well as hear about your unique experiences, as to how the clinician can approach this disease.

  • Dyslipidemia

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and while much progress has been made in this disease state, there remains considerable risk of ASCVD. This community is designed provide new information on the science of lipid management, and drive awareness of the importance of lipid control.

  • Interventional Cardiology

    ACC and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) have partnered to create this collection of resource materials on Interventional Cardiology. Content is drawn from both the ACC's CardioSource and CRF's TCTMD, and is selected by our editor, Dr. Debabrata Mukherjee.

  • Sleep Apnea and Cardiovascular Disease

    This community is a space for physicians and other individuals involved or interested in the subject of Sleep Apnea to discuss topics that are relevant to routine and advanced practice, with a focus on topics such as how to appropriately diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, how to treat, and when to refer a patient for a sleep study. We hope this collaborative community facilitates interaction between clinical disciplines.
