Rates of burnout pre- and peak COVID-19 pandemic increased across all members of the cardiology care team and was particularly striking among cardiovascular team members, which researchers said may be because they were more likely at the bedside as patients were dying. Among all cardiovascular clinicians – cardiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and imaging technologists – half provided direct care to patients with COVID-19. #COVID19 #ACCCOVID

Rates of burnout pre- and peak COVID-19 pandemic increased across all members of the cardiology care team and was particularly striking among cardiovascular team members, which researchers said may be because they were more likely at the bedside as patients were dying. Among all cardiovascular clinicians – cardiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and imaging technologists – half provided direct care to patients with COVID-19, and yet one of five reported not having adequate personal protective equipment (PPE). Not surprisingly, the rate of burnout was higher in this group. Getty Images

There is a trend in interventional cardiology that is now being called “renalism,” where patients with poor renal function are being excluded from interventional procedures because they are automatically considered too high risk. However, some hospitals are also creating cardio-renal care teams so these patients can be cared for by a team of experts rather than interventional cardiologists going it alone. #SCAI21 #SCAI2021 Creating a card0-renal program.
