AHA 2023 — CardioNerds Ambassador, Dr Ramy Doss (Nazareth Hospital, US) is joined by Dr Chiadi E Ndumele (Johns Hopkins University, US) to talk about AHA's Presidential Advisory on Cardiovascular-Kidney-Metabolic Health (CKM).
The presidential advisory focuses on the cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic (CKM) syndrome, a systemic disorder connecting heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes and obesity. It emphasises the urgency of addressing CKM, especially in disadvantaged populations and proposes a consensus on defining and staging the syndrome.
The advisory provides screening recommendations, outlines approaches for each stage, and underscores the need for a multidisciplinary team approach. Social determinants of health are highlighted, along with identified shortcomings in current efforts and knowledge gaps.
Recored on-site at AHA Scientific Sessions 2023, Philadelphia.
