Cornell Innovation Conference
I’m Jacqueline, MS4 doing research with Dr. Kaushal Shah. We are working on a project assessing the need/desire for further training in reading head CTs among EM residents, and we are asking you to fill out this super quick yes/no survey. It will just take a minute of your time, we would really appreciate it if you could help us out!
If you’ve filled out this survey before, thank you for participating and please disregard!
*While we cannot offer any compensation for this study, we hope that information learned from the study will benefit you and other trainees.
Heart Transplant Workflow
New WC Heart Transplant Program set to go live this fall
Advanced Heart Failure/Transplant team wants to know about all heart transplant patients that present to the ED regardless of their complaint or when/where their transplant occurred
Place “Inpatient Consult to Cardiology (Advanced HF/Pulm HTN)” order when these patients present to the ED
If patient in shock use consult order “Inpatient Consult to Cardiology (ECMO)” instead
A member of advanced HF team or CCU fellow (overnight) will evaluate patient in the ED
Admit these patients to 4N (under Advanced Heart Failure PA team) or CCU depending on their necessary level of care
