CardioNerds (Amit Goyal, Daniel Ambinder, Carine Hamo, and Karan Desai) are honored to bring to you the Braunwald Chronicles. These are stories of discovery, innovation, accidents, perseverance, and more…truly these are the stories of cardiology, directly from a father of modern cardiology himself, Dr. Eugene Braunwald. Dr. Braunwald’s life and stories together are the saga which have brought us to this day in modern cardiology. So please join us for the Braunwald Chronicles, as we journey through the history of cardiology, across 6 extraordinary chapters.
We continue with Chapter 2 where Dr. Braunwald discusses his Camelot years, discoveries with regards to myocardial oxygen consumption & how the transseptal approach was developed. We hear about the incredible environment at the NIH during his early days, his delineation of the variables that result in myocardial oxygen demand and the discovery of the transseptal approach, which is so key to so many of our percutaneous interventions today.
We thank Dr. Karan Desai, Editorial APD with the CardioNerds Academy, and fellow at University of Maryland, for all the work he put into designing the Braunwald Chronicles. Audio editing by Pace Wetstein.
