These guidelines are intended for physicians, health care workers, and collaborators involved in the pre-operative, operative, and post-operative care of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The objective is to endorse a standardized and evidence-based approach to peri-operative CV management. The guidelines recommend a stepwise evaluation of the patient that integrates clinical risk factors and test results with the estimated stress of the planned surgical procedure and the risks involved with the discontinuation of drugs.
ASH has developed a series of brief, evidence-based pocket guides to help physicians provide quality care to patients. The guides cover such topics as thrombocytopenia in pregnancy, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, red blood cell transfusion, anticoagulant dosing and management, and von Willebrand disease.
Get interactive versions of all the Society's clinical pocket guides right on your iOS or Android device. In addition to the pocket guides content, the app includes tools to aid in clinical decision making, including: bleeding score and 4Ts calculators; calculators for initial and chronic warfarin dosing; and interactive algorithms for the diagnosis and management of HIT and VWD.

The ability to download medical apps on mobile devices has made a wealth of mobile clinical resources available to HCPs.15 Medical apps for many purposes are available, including ones for electronic prescribing, diagnosis and treatment, practice management, coding and billing, and CME or e-learning.9,10 A broad choice of apps that assist with answering clinical practice and other questions at the point of care exist, such as: drug reference guides, medical calculators, clinical guidelines and other decision support aids, textbooks, and literature search portals.7,13,15 There are even mobile apps that simulate surgical procedures or that can conduct simple medical exams, such as hearing or vision tests.6,7 Many mobile apps are not intended to replace desktop applications, but are meant to complement them in order to provide a resource that has the potential to improve outcomes at the point of care.7 The use of medical apps has become frequent and widespread; 70% of medical school HCPs and students reported using at least one medical app regularly, with 50% using their favorite app daily.1,9
Specialized apps are also available for remote viewing of medical imaging scans.10 Mobile MIM is a free app for the iPad and iPhone, approved by the Food and Drug Administration, that allows remote viewing of x-rays and imaging scans when users cannot access imaging workstations.6 This software works with a paid subscription or pay-per-use plan using MIMCloud, a HIPAA-compliant server that allows users to store and share medical images.6 Images can be downloaded from the cloud and viewed with the MIMViewer paid app in any setting, whether during discussions with team members or patients.6
Current treatment guidelines available at the point of care via mobile apps also provide a valuable resource for HCPs.6 Several guidelines are accessible on mobile platforms, including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for cancer care available through the Epocrates app, and the American College of Chest Physicians antithrombotic therapy guidelines available via the CHEST app.6 The Johns Hopkins ABX Guide app provides an impressive compilation of antimicrobial recommendations and guidelines, including some for surgical prophylaxis and surgical site infection treatment.6

She meditates upon it with her mind and her soul as well. In so doing, she opens the very being of each reader who has the privilege to read and reflect upon her moving and meditative words. Her readings and insights touch the deepest levels of who each of us is as a person. Hers is a spiritual masterpiece that will prepare your spirit as you seek the call of the High Holiday season." --Rabbi David Ellenson, Chancellor Emeritus, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion "For too many, the High Holy Days catch us unprepared, but with Rabbi Debra Robbins's inspired guidebook, Opening Your Heart with Psalm 27, we can explore our inner spiritual landscape so that we might awaken to more intentional lives of purpose and depth. She's a loving and wise guide, taking even a reluctant hand to walk the path of genuine spirituality. Just what the spiritual doctor prescribed." -- Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President, Union for Reform Judaism "This original and rich work is an invitation to dive deeply into the themes of the High Holy Days. If you enter, you will have an inspiring teacher guiding you on a journey of sacred discovery." -- Rabbi Sheila Peltz Weinberg, author of God Loves the Stranger, Founding teacher of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality "Rabbi Robbins has written a deeply soulful book that opens us up -- a few minutes each day -- to Psalm 27's sources of light and mystery. It enables us in a season of forgiveness to realize ourselves more fully, to approach our failings more gently, and to love more wisely. Thank you." -- Dr. Erica Brown, Associate Professor, Curriculum and Pedagogy, George Washington School of Education and Human Development and Director, Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership"What makes the book special is the fact that the psalm acts as a springboard for some wonderfully contemplative material which amply bears further time for reflection. Opening Your Heart with Psalm 27 is a fine companion for the period from Elul 1 to Sukkot, but there are gems within Rabbi Debra Robbins's contemplative commentary that would be a useful, enriching accompaniment to the other days of the year as well." -- Rabbi Dr. Charles Middleburgh, Dean, Leo Baeck College
