JACC Patient Pathways is a new interactive case report experience that depicts the integration of cross-specialty decision making supported by evidence-based medicine within a single patient journey. Reflecting a patient’s real-life care pathway, “A Young Female Patient in Extremis,” combines data points and clinical images from diagnostic assessment and treatment, as well as clips from the caregivers and an expert video panel, chaired by Dr. Valentin Fuster. Explore the interactive case.

A new JACC Chest Pain Interactive Tool is now available to help clinicians determine risk and appropriate testing in patients presenting with chest pain by quickly walking through multiple scenarios based on recommendations from the newly released AHA/ACC 2021 Chest Pain Guideline. The web-based tool easily connects clinicians to the recommendations, tables and figures from the new guideline and outlines the path forward for low- to high-risk patients with acute and stable chest pain.
