TopMedTalk

This piece argues that troponin screening might be overused, "it's not all about the heart". Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery (MINS) is seen as a relatively common issue driving post-operative harm. This piece gets into the detail and asks some important questions as to how focused practitioners should be upon troponin screening. It's part 2 of 3 from The EBPOM 2019 TopMedTalk session which debated the issue. Presented by Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and critical care at the University of Southampton and frequent TopMedTalk contributor.

"I did a study back in 2002 where I was able to count a grand total of forty patients above the age of eighty in our (Intensive Care Unit) ICU and our (High Dependency Unit) HDU, nowadays I'd count close enough to a hundred and sixty" How do we refine our diagnostic tools? How can teaching in this area help to save lives? Should you consider a 'geriatric intensive care unit'? Is this an area where true perioperative practice and surgery is a guarantee we can immediately see improvement in an institution?

TopMedTalk

"Perioperative medicine is an opportunity; it's multidisciplinary and its developing around a culture of trust between anaesthetists, surgeons and perioperative physicians" The future of perioperative medicine embraces the full scope of medical advancement and is therefore difficult to predict, as a result truly informed shared decision making is both crucial and more complex. Variability of practice is a key factor; usually caused by the overuse or underuse of a facility and its resources. The former being a particular problem in America with the financial incentives associated with some...

TopMedTalk

This piece argues that troponin screening is useful, if used appropriately. Is it the case that this test has been 'over sold' and as a result has provoked unhelpful pushback from practitioners? It's part 1 of 3 from The EBPOM 2019 TopMedTalk session which debated the issue. Presented by Duminda Wijeysundera, Professor in the Department of Anaesthesia and the Institute of Health Policy Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto, and a Staff Anesthesiologist at St Michael’s Hospital.
