In This Episode:

In this episode, host Dr. Karl Steinberg, MD, CMD, and editor-in-chief Dr. Elizabeth Galik, PhD, CRNP, discuss our May issue of Caring for the Ages with guest Nicole Orr, MD. This issue contains and special section on Heart Disease and Matters of the Heart. Dr. Orr, president of Post-Acute Cardiology Care, LLC, in Darien, CT, discusses the field of geriatric cardiology, including recent advancements and the need for collaboration with geriatricians and other post-acute and long-term care professionals. Dr. Galik also discusses three other articles in the special section: loneliness and heart disease, the importance of friendships amongst residents and how we can support residents to make friends, and a pragmatic research column on whether or not switching from warfarin to a novel oral anticoagulant is safer than remaining on warfarin in older, frail patients with atrial fibrillation. The findings are surprising!

Be sure to check out the rest of this important special issue, including articles on women and heart disease, SGLT-2 Inhibitors, legal issues associated with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and more!
