On February 14th. Drs. Derek Exner and Ratika Parkash, Co-Chairs of the Primary Panel for the CCS Guidelines on Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy: Evidence and Patient Selection, along with Drs François Philippon and David Birnie, presented the new CRT Guidelines during a one-hour webinar.
We are pleased with the outcome of this on-line session which included 40 participants from across Canada, many questions that contributed to good discussion and the positive and constructive feedback we continue to receive.
During the session, our presenters completed the following:
- Reviewed the appropriate selection of patients for CRT
- Discussed the role of CRT pacing
- Described the risks and benefits related to patients with AF, RBBB and chronic RV pacing
- Explained the technical issues related to CRT including vascular access and lead placement
- Discussed the role of imaging in assessment of CRT
For the first time, the CCS is making this on-line session available with audio and video recording. You will be prompted to enter your email address and then your first and last name to download/stream the file.

Thank you to the presenters and participants for contributing to a successful CRT knowledge translation activity.
If you attended this session, please take a few minutes to complete the CRT Webinar survey.
A group of clinicians consisting of cardiologists and nephrologists is working together to develop a case based discussion of the key concepts and approaches to the management of Hyponatremia. We have all heard that optimal treatment pathways for hyponatremia are not well defined, and therefore management varies widely. In order to understand this variability, three congestive heart failure cases with varying complexity were chosen for the survey.
So, please participate and test your “Sodium IQ”
We are pleased to announce that the following guidelines are now available in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology both online at www.onlinecjc.ca and in the February print issue:
- The 2012 Canadian Cardiovascular Society Heart Failure Management Guidelines Update: Focus on Acute and Chronic Heart Failure
- 2012 Update of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Dyslipidemia for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in the Adult
- Canadian Cardiovascular Society Guidelines on the Use of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy: Evidence and Patient Selection
The CardioRisk Calculator is based on the 2012 Dyslipidemia Guidelines and the 2011 Canadian Consensus Paper on statin intolerance. The algorithm allows for rapid assessment of Framingham Risk, Vascular Age, Metabolic Syndrome and other factors supporting treatment and management of adults with dyslipidemia and heart risk. Comparative drug tables and a calculator for determining percentage changes in LDL required to reach target are also included.

Our experts have developed three interesting cases on hyponatremia in congestive heart failure. These cases cover key concepts and approaches to the management of hyponatremia with multiple-choice questions at various clinical decision points. Please participate; test your knowledge of hyponatremia and learn from our multi-disciplinary expert panel Dr. Jonathan Howlett, Dr. Anique Ducharme, Dr. Peter Liu, Dr. Daniel Bichet, Dr. Karen Yeates, Dr. Steven Soroka.
