In this episode, episode 52, I welcome Dr. Todd Dorman to the show. Dr. Dorman is a professor of anesthesiology here at Johns Hopkins, is the Vice Chair for Critical Care, and is the immediate past president of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). Dr. Dorman and I discuss diastolic heart failure or heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF), how it differs from systolic heart failure or heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF), how it presents, and how to manage it perioperatively.
