Abstract Background Despite evidence that high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) levels in women are lower than in men, a single threshold based on the 99th percentile upper reference limit of the overall reference population is commonly used to diagnose myocardial infarction in clinical practice. This trial aims to determine whether the use of a lower female-specific hs-cTn threshold would improve the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of women presenting to the emergency department with sy...

Abstract Background Hospitalization for non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) is a common and results in substantial cost burden. Current national data trends data for the incidence, stroke risk profiles and mortality of hospitalization for NVAF/atrial flutter (AFL) are sparse. Methods The Canadian Institute of Health Information Discharge Abstract Database was used to identify patients > 20 years with incident NVAF/AFL (NVAF, ICD-9 code 427.3 or ICD-10 I48) in any diagnosis field from 2006 to...
KEY POINTS In 2016, 270 204 people in Canada (excluding Quebec) were admitted to hospital for heart conditions, stroke and vascular cognitive impairment, including 107 391 women and 162 813 men, of whom 91 524 died.[1][1] This equates to 1 out of every 3 deaths in Canada and outpaces other diseases

Abstract Background Clinical decision support (CDS) tools designed to digest, filter, organize and present health data are becoming essential in providing clinical- and cost-effective care. Many are not rigorously evaluated for benefit before implementation. We assessed whether computerized CDS for primary care providers would improve atrial fibrillation (AF) management and outcomes as compared to usual care. Methods and Results. Overall, 203 primary care providers were recruited, randomized, th...

Abstract Background In 2010, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Atrial Fibrillation/Atrial Flutter (AF/AFL) quality indicator (QI) working group was established to develop QIs and assess feasibility of measurement. After extensive review, 3 priority QIs were selected. However, none were measurable at a national level. Methods The working group reconvened in 2017 to review the relevance of previously proposed QIs, identify opportunities to develop new QIs, and propose an initial strategy for mea...
