NCDR Study: General Anesthesia vs. Monitored Anesthesia Care in Pediatric EP Patients

Among pediatric patients undergoing electrophysiology (EP) procedures, there may be no differences between general anesthesia (GA) and monitored anesthesia care (MAC) for supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) or ectopic atrial tachycardia inducibility, acute ablation success or major adverse events, according to a study in Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology.

Marked Variability in Discharge ACEI/ARB, Beta-Blockers in MINOCA, NCDR Study Shows

There are strong variations among U.S. hospitals in the proportion of patients with myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) who receive angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers (ACEI/ARB) and beta-blockers at discharge, according to a study published in PLOS ONE.
