Ischemic Heart Disease: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

by Carlo Raj, MD

Coronary artery disease is an increasingly common cardiac condition defined by the accumulation of atherosclerotic plaque within coronary vessel lumens. This leads to impairment in blood flow and oxygen delivery to the myocardium, which in turn leads to ischemic heart disease.

Ischemic heart disease can present in a number of ways, from acute myocardial infarction to chronic or stable angina, and eventual heart failure secondary to ischemic remodeling. It is a cause of major morbidity and mortality worldwide. Prompt diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease, and ideally prevention of ischemic complications, is necessary to prevent the high morbidity and mortality associated with it.

Excellent lecture on the pathological timeline of MI and IHD.

Lack of depth.
By Ali J. on 24. April 2023 for Management of Angina and Myocardial Infarction: NSTEMI and STEMI Treatment

The treatment options, steps, and the overall approach to STEMI and NSTEMI patients was absolutely insufficient in this video compared to the information we must know for exams. So vague. Most of us are medical students, we know we have to use beta blockers, the real questions are when and how much? He should've gone over a systemic approach to such patients. The initial management and etc.

Very useful

Dr. Raj makes the lecture more interesting with how he delivers the topic and the explanations behind it. His constant repetition of the topic makes one retain the information by heart. He is very smart and knows the topic very well the way he says it. I like all of his discussions…
