Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ohman My clinical and research interests include interventional cardiology and high-risk supported percutaneous coronary intervention treatment of patients with advanced and/or complex coronary disease improving patient care through the use of guidelines-based therapies and adherence and prevention of coronary disease. My research has focused on ST-elevation myocardial infarction and reperfusion therapy (restoring blood flow through blocked arteries) and antiplatelet and antithrombotic therapies. I serve on the ACC/AHA oversight committee for guidelines development and have served on the steering committees for several clinical trials on ST-elevation myocardial infarction and non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes. I am a consultant to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a member of the FDA Advisory Panel for Cardiovascular Devices. My published works include over 450 peer-reviewed papers and three books in cardiovascular medicine. I serve on the editorial board for several cardiovascular medicine journals. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.
