Shock Teams: The Jaws of Life for Cardiogenic Shock

Shock Teams: The Jaws of Life for Cardiogenic Shock

To rescue patients with complex heart disease from the brink of worsening cardiogenic shock, “shock teams,” comprised of a multidisciplinary group of specialists, can be invaluable. Christopher Barnett, MD, MPH, professor in the Division of Cardiology, chief of the Section of Critical Care Cardiology and medical director of the CICU and Inpatient Cardiology at UCSF Health, along with Connor O’Brien, MD, assistant professor in the Division of Cardiology at UCSF Health, will explain the differences in cardiogenic shock care pathways and which patient populations can benefit most from early intervention.

Speakers: Christopher Barnett, MD, MPH is a professor in the Division of Cardiology, chief of Critical Care Cardiology, and medical director of the CICU and Inpatient Cardiology, all at UCSF Health. He specializes in cardiology and critical care medicine and studies disease processes that occur in patients with complex heart disease in the intensive care unit, such as cardiogenic shock.

Connor O’Brien, MD is an assistant professor in the Division of Cardiology at UCSF Health. He has expertise in echocardiography and critical care medicine, focusing on adults with severe cardiac dysfunction or systemic shock who need prompt treatment in intensive care. He also cares for patients during the transition from intensive care to outpatient cardiac care.

Current & Future State of COVID: Updates from the Infectious Diseases Society of America Meeting

The annual meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) took place last week in Washington, D.C. This week, our COVID-19 update will consider the current state of COVID and explore future directions by recapping some of the cutting-edge presentations at IDSA. The presenters will be two of our own ID experts who attended the meeting: Lisa Winston and Monica Gandhi. We’re honored to be joined by Carlos del Rio, who this week became the IDSA’s president. Speakers: Carlos del Rio, MD is Executive Associate Dean at the Emory School of Medicine & Grady Health System. He is also professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Emory University School of Medicine and professor of Global Health and Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health. On October 24, 2022, he became president of the 12,000-member Infectious Diseases Society of America, the preeminent professional society for infectious diseases practitioners. Monica Gandhi, MD, MPH is professor of Medicine and associate chief of the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at ZSFG; director of the UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research; and medical director of the HIV Clinic, Ward 86, at ZSFG. Lisa Winston, MD is professor of Medicine in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at ZSFG; chief of the Medical Staff and hospital epidemiologist at ZSFG; and a Department of Medicine Master Clinician.

Fireside Chat with Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Editor-in-Chief of JAMA

On July 1, Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo became the 17th editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), as well as editor of JAMA Network(TM). She previously served as vice dean for Population Health and Health Equity and chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UCSF. In this fireside chat, we’ll catch up with Kirsten and hear about her new role at JAMA, the role of an editor in an era of scientific misinformation, COVID and health disparities, and other insights.

Speaker: Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, PhD, MD, MAS is the Lee Goldman, MD endowed professor of Medicine and professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. She is currently the editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and JAMA Network(TM).

Kirsten previously served as the inaugural vice dean for Population Health and Health Equity in the UCSF School of Medicine and chaired the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics from 2017-2022. She co-founded the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, which generates actionable research to increase health equity and reduce health disparities in at-risk populations in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and nationally.

Clinical Problem Solving with Lisa Winston

For this Grand Rounds, we have another Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) case to allow listeners to watch in real time how master clinicians reason through challenging cases. While getting the diagnosis “right” is amazing to see, the true learning comes from witnessing how experts navigate the zigs and zags of a diagnostic journey in a case that unfurls in real time (as it does in life, of course). Our discussant will be Lisa Winston, MD, professor in the Division of HIV, ID, and Global Medicine, chief of the Medical Staff and hospital epidemiologist at ZSFG, and Master Clinician. She received her MD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, completed her Internal Medicine residency, Chief Residency, and fellowships in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Pharmacology at UCSF. Her research interests are infection control and prevention and antimicrobial resistant bacterial pathogens. Following the case discussion, an expert panel will offer some key teaching points based on the case prepared by Parnassus Chief Residents Anna Fretz, MD, MHS and Viridiana Garcia, MD, MS.
