Heart rate control is associated with the reduced cardiovascular events in Asian patients with coronary artery disease treated with bisoprolol (BISO-CAD): results from a multi-national, real-world experience. Curr Med Res Opin. 2017 Aug 02;:1-27 Authors: Chen Y, Yang X, Nguyen Pham V, Huang S, Fu G, Chen X, Quang Truong B, Yang Y, Liu S, Chen X, Ma T, Kim DS, Kim TH Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between decrease in resting heart rate (RHR) and occurrence of composite cardiac clinical outcomes in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients after bisoprolol treatment. METHODS: This phase IV, multi-national, single-arm, open-label, non-randomized, observational trial was conducted between October 2011 to April 2014 across 40 hospitals from China, South Korea and Vietnam. RESULTS: Analysis of 866 patients (mean age 63.85 ± 10.35; mean RHR at baseline 75.71 ± 6.87 bpm in intent-to-treat (ITT); 75.56 ± 6.73 in efficacy analysis (EA) sets) was done. Patients with lower mean RHR had less composite cardiac events and patients with RHR of 69-74bpm reported significantly higher outcomes than patients with RHR

CONCLUSION: Use of VR facility tours as an alternative to in-person tours of affiliate training facilities during a residency interview day is a viable and innovative option that can save time and money and favorably impact the applicant's impression of the program. More research is necessary to assess whether VR tours can replace in-person tours at the main teaching site, however, while social distancing measures are in place, VR tours may become necessary for programs moving forward.

Authors: Roberts V, Malone K, Moore P, Russell-Webster T, Caulfield R Abstract Our personal views about the challenges of continuing to deliver peer teaching during a pandemic. We are a group of 4th year medical students who are part of a student society which has delivered structured, highly formulaic peer-led teaching sessions for the past three years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the reduced access to our normal clinical teaching highlighted the importance of peer-led teaching sessions. We wanted to continue with our peer-taught sessions but knew we would have to devise a new format to make our teaching accessi...
