Importance of the Cardio-Obstetrics Team

ConclusionsWe have solid evidence supporting a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with cardiac conditions in pregnancy. This approach is optimal because it facilitates a consistent and clear message to the patient (and those caring for each patient) regarding management and risks associated with pregnancy, as well as subsequent risk and postpartum follow-up. We support the extension of clinical collaboration between obstetricians and cardiologists to the research realm and know that working together to investigate the outcomes of moms with heart conditions and their babies will provide clinically meaningful information to support the care of these unique patients.

We don’t often think too much about our relationship with our friends. We don’t tend to work on them, communicate within them, or bring them to therapy with us. Maybe we should! Friends are vital in our lives. Recent studies on loneliness have found that a lack of social connection is about as bad for us as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. These relationships can be passionate and powerful. They tend to sustain much longer than most romantic relationships. When a friendship ends, it can break our hearts. We don’t keep every friend we’ve ever made, of course, but most friendships end with a whimper&mdash...

The dangers of alcohol begin at the first sip of the first drink. Although most responsible drinking habits shouldn’t be cause for major concern, everyone who drinks runs the risk of encountering the negative effects of alcohol. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans defines moderate drinking as up to 1 drink per day for women and up to 2 drinks per day for men.  A single drink is considered as: 12 ounces of beer (5% alcohol content) 8 ounces of malt liquor (7% alcohol content) 5 ounces of wine (12% alcohol content) 1.5 ounces of 80-proof (40% alcohol content) distilled spirits or liquor (e.g., gin, rum, vodka, ...

This morning while at the gym, I was working out in front of a bank of televisions. One had an episode of Friends playing on it, the focus was Rachel’s baby shower. This otherwise competent professional was in a panic since she didn’t know much about babies. She thought a breast pump was a “beer bong for babies” and she was shocked that newborns have at least 10 bowel movements a day and that she shouldn’t leave an infant on the changing table while she went to the dumpster to dispose of dirty diapers. She called the bassinet, a “pretty basket” that had contained some of the gifts....
