Discover the importance of discerning between superficial vein disorders that affect the skin's surface, such as Varicose Veins, and deep vein disorders that may be a risk for severe health implications such as clot migration and extension, as seen in Deep Vein Thrombosis. Hear from our NUHCS Vascular Specialists on how the early diagnosis and referral of these significant conditions during the primary care stage plays a crucial role in optimizing patient outcomes.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most useful and versatile bedside tests for the evaluation of heart disease. Intimate knowlege of the 12-lead ECG not only helps with diagnosis, management and risk stratification of many disease conditions, but can be life-saving in many medical emergencies. At NUHCS, ECG teaching has been an integral part of our professional education commitment for more than three decades. We invite our primary care colleagues to join us in our quest to unlock the secrets that the humble ECG holds.
