Bioengineering Dept. Seminar Series, ‘Myocardial Infarction: Diagnosing the Cause’
March 21, noon to 1:30 p.m., Shumaker Building, Room 139
Dr. Andrew DeFilippis, Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, will discuss Acute myocardial infarction and the variety of pathologies can result in this clinical diagnosis. Current guidelines recognize two classes of MI: thrombotic (Type 1) and nonthrombotic (Type 2) MI, which have similar prevalence but require different treatment. Unfortunately, diagnostic criteria for differentiating between the two do not exist. This results in inefficient and suboptimal care of patients suspected of MI. The overall goal of our Laboratory is to develop diagnostic criteria to identify and distinguish thrombotic and non-thrombotic MI in order to allow for etiology driven diagnosis and treatment of specific sub-types of acute MI.

Partnership for a Green City Energy Tip 25 – Stay ‘green’ in March
Start a new habit of making sure that you turn off all your equipment at the end of each day at work, at school and at home. A few things to consistently turn off are lights, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, etc. SMART power strips have a “main” plug for your computer or TV and additional plugs for other equipment. When you turn your main item on, all other items turn on, but when you turn the main item off, the others are powered off automatically. These save up to 75 percent of energy use.
