How could it be possible to get angina from normal coronary arteries in cardiac x syndrome?

Now I'm doing a rotation in cardiology. I've come across about Cardiac X syndrome, but I don't really get what it is. A book said "it is a form of microvascular angina but occurs in normal coronary arteries". Unfortunately, no-where in the book is it explained in depth. So I have a few questions: Is there any proper definition and how to diagnose it? What is the pathophysiology than can explain this syndrome? Does it something related to metabolic x syndrome? Any takers?

Do final year medical students enjoy their ICU placements?

I often see that final year students do not enjoy their rotations through the ICU. Maybe the whole environment is daunting and all the machines just confuse things? Do you find it a great place to apply core physiology? Would be great to hear the positive and negative experiences.

Pause for Thought . . . Let’s ditch the numbers and focus on the comments when assessing learners

By Lynfa Stroud  “Expectation is the root of all heartache.” – William Shakespeare               In my role as an attending on the general medicine wards, I complete In-Training Evaluation Reports (ITERs) for the residents who I work with.

How to develop targeted simulation learning objectives – Part 1: The Theory

Simulation has filled a void that was once present in medical education. Written and oral examinations continue to be used to assess Miller’s “knows” and “knows how” levels of performance while clinical rotation evaluations rest at the top of the triangle: “Does”. Simulation completes Miller’s triangle by allowing learners to “show how” their knowledge and…

apneic-oxygenation

You are a first day intern (literally, for many of you), the cardiac room is overflowing with patients and you are asked to set up for endotracheal intubation on a patient with declining mental status.  You haven’t intubated since your anesthesia rotation and you’re worried you may experience some difficulty with the procedure.  What can you do to delay desaturation in the event that you need more time to intubate?

Association of hip pain with radiographic evidence of hip osteoarthritis: diagnostic test study

Methods In this diagnostic test study, pelvic radiographs were assessed for hip osteoarthritis in two cohorts: the Framingham Osteoarthritis Study (community of Framingham, Massachusetts) and the Osteoarthritis Initiative (a multicenter longitudinal cohort study of osteoarthritis in the United States). Using visual representation of the hip joint, participants reported whether they had hip pain on most days and the location of the pain: anterior, groin, lateral, buttocks, or low back. In the Framingham study, participants with hip pain were also examined for hip pain with internal rotation. The authors analysed the agreement between radiographic hip osteoarthritis and hip pain, and for those with hip pain suggestive of hip osteoarthritis they calculated the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of radiographs as the diagnostic test.
