His lecture, titled “Alternative Approach to Cardiac Catheterizations,” will take place July 29, 2014, at the USA Faculty Club on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.
During the talk, Dr. Qureshi will discuss the benefits of radial artery cardiac catheterizations, an alternative approach to traditional cardiac catheterizations. Cardiac catheterizations are performed to evaluate the coronary arteries for the presence of obstruction to blood flow. Traditionally, the entry point for a cardiac catheterization has been in the groin area through the femoral artery. However, a radial artery catheterization can be performed through the radial artery in the patient’s wrist, significantly reducing the risk of bleeding complications and recovery time.
The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail email@example.com.
