Telecourse: Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a highly prevalent disorder associated with significant cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, yet is underdiagnosed and undertreated in primary care practice. In this program, Dr. Alain Drooze explains how to easily apply new ACC/AHA guidelines for management of patients with PAD, reviewing differential diagnosis, risk reduction strategies, treatment of intermittent claudication, and when to refer a patient to a vascular specialist.
This 60-minute video course is now available in DVD and VHS formats in the Health Sciences Library.
