Highlights from past Transradial Approach courses
"I wanted to thank you for the radial course. Got a brochure on another one and thought back. I'm now doing 85% of cases radial; have done about 100. I have needed some of those tips and tricks from the course; they've come in very handy. I would not have stuck with it except for the course. I'm doing acutes now. The teaching and lab were both great! Thanks again."
Mark Sanz, M.D.
International Heart Institute
Providence Saint Patrick Hospital
"This was a superb course. The instructors are engaging and cover the majority of questions during presentations before they can be asked or thought of. Even still, they welcome and encourage questions. The use of audio visual aids and live cases are the best I've ever experienced and brings the didactic information into clinical application for the most effective educational experience and impressions. I will highly recommend this course to my colleagues and encourage the continuation of this great course."
Allen McGrew, M.D.
"An outstanding course with a good mix of didactic presentations, clinical tips, live cases and hands-on practice! The faculty was extremely helpful and approachable."
Thomas Frohlich, M.D.
Alameda County Medical Center
"One of the best evidence-based case and hands-on courses I have attended. Especially excellent were tips and technique tricks of the trade and what to do when things don't go as planned."
Rick Latham, M.D.
Fairbanks Memorial Hospital
"Excellent Course! At present my plans are to schedule cases as radial cases when I get back - hard to teach an old dog new tricks...but I want to give it an honest try. You are excellent teachers and I appreciate the sharing of your expertise."
Pima Heart Associates
"The faculty was very engaging and did an excellent job of demonstrating critical aspects of the procedure."
Karen Clark, M.D.
Reno Heart Physicians
Sierra Nevada VA Healthcare System
"This was a great teaching and learning conference. Thanks to Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute for putting together such a wonderful teaching event. Excellent!"
Iraj Aflatooni, M.D.
"Outstanding! The lectures, live cases and BioSkills Labs were great. Remained quite useful to me as not too much focus on PCI (most info also applied to diagnostic cath). Radial artery puncture practice in the BioSkills Lab was especially good."
Neal Perlmutter, M.D.
Overlake Medical Clinics
Overlake Hospital Medical Center
"Very Informative. Even though I only start IV's for this population, I felt welcomed and encouraged to participate. Knowledge behind what we do, in other words, knowing why we do what we do, only improves practice."
Julie Ness, R.N.
"I am a lab manager and I thought this course was outstanding! This was my first experience in the BioSkills Lab. What a great resource for our community!"
Steve Rowell, RCIS
Clinical Director, Cardiac Services
Overlake Hospital Medical Center
"I appreciate the interactive format and the 'demystification' of radial access and complications."
"Excellent course! Faculty members are great and experienced. I enjoyed and learned a lot."
Vidhu S. Paliwal, M.D.
Skagit Valley Hospital
Mount Vernon, Washington
"Great opportunity to not just be lectured, but to also practice radial access and simulator catheter manipulation."
"I didn't feel that there is a huge gap between me and the interventional cardiologist's who were giving the lectures. This helped to build confidence that I can start a radial program and accept the learning curve."
Adel M. Shaheen, M.D.
St. Rita's Medical Center
"I enjoyed the live cases. All the presenters were knowledgeable and seemed to be learning more at the same time."
"The Seattle Science Foundation facilities are world-class!"
