In a recent publication in Nature Reviews Cardiology, Boussuge-Roze et al. describe the environmental impact of cardiac electrophysiology catheterizations on climate change. Cardiac ablations are important to treat cardiac arrythmias and their global demand has increased exponentially since their introduction. However, their carbon footprint is also an important part of the carbon footprint from the health sector.
In the latest podcast episode, Dr. Chadi Alraies discusses this publication and how it may impact daily practice.
