ACTION Registry
ACTION Registry®–GWTG™ is a national, risk-adjusted, outcomes-based quality improvement program that helps participating facilities measure and improve care for high-risk ACS patients with STEMI and NSTEMI. The result of the collaboration between the two leading national coronary artery disease registries, the NCDR® ACTION Registry® and the American Heart Association (AHA) Get With The GuidelinesSM-CAD Registry, ACTION Registry–GWTG will be the largest, most comprehensive national cardiovascular patient database ever developed by the medical profession.

Combining the strengths of the two programs, ACTION Registry–GWTG will collect a comprehensive set of data elements that provide healthcare professionals and their facilities with the information they need to monitor and improve adherence to the most current, science-based ACC/AHA treatment guidelines. Participation will greatly facilitate quality improvement efforts, optimize clinical care, and improve clinical outcomes for acute coronary syndrome patients.

THE EVOLVING LANDSCAPE OF ACS IN THE EMERGENCY SETTING: FOCUS ON ANTIPLATELET AND ANTICOAGULATION THERAPY
THE EVOLVING LANDSCAPE OF ACS IN THE EMERGENCY SETTING: FOCUS ON ANTIPLATELET AND ANTICOAGULATION THERAPY
Transcript monograph from the 2013 EMCREG-International Symposium held in Seattle, Washington on October 13, 2013. This is presented as an interactive piece which features discussion of the new 2012 ACCF/AHA Guideline for the Treatment of Non-ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction and Unstable Angina and the 2013 ACCF/AHA Guideline for the treatment of ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction. Emphasis will be placed on the antiplatelet and anticoagulant portion of the guidelines.

HEART FAILURE: BIOMARKERS OF DIAGNOSIS AND PROGNOSIS
HEART FAILURE: BIOMARKERS OF DIAGNOSIS AND PROGNOSIS
Heart Failure remains a common presentation in the emergency department. For the emergency physician clarifying the course of the universal complaint, shortness of breath, requires excellent clinical acumen combined with a clear understanding of the laboratory tests available to distinguish Heart Failure from other causes of dyspnea. Dr. Frank Peacock of the Cleveland Clinic authors an excellent discussion of the scientific basis for the use of the natriuretic peptide biomarkers in heart failure including future markers currently being investigated.
