Protected PCI Program: The Role of an Algorithm and Coordinator

January 16, 2018

Dr. Ayaz Rahman of Parkwest Medical Center in Tennessee joins Sheila Gebel to discuss the importance and efficacy of having a Protected PCI Coordinator role. The Parkwest team started a clinical coordinator with TAVR and adopted that strategy to the structural program with Protected PCI. The team also employs a Protected PCI algorithm for decision-making. Dr. Rahman notes that the algorithm is fluid as new data becomes available. In addition, Dr. Rahman takes a heart team approach of interventional cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and imaging specialists. Learn more about how Dr. Rahman created the algorithm and got buy-in from the heart team at Parkwest.
