Síntese do concurso

I am looking for someone to create an engaging medical study guide/ebook which will be used by medical students/doctors/nurses to study medicine smarter, not harder. This competition is to find the right person to write several books with over several months.

My unique approach is that is should be very condensed and full of ‘memory hacks’ which is why **I provide the text to be used exactly as it is - PLEASE DONT AMMEND THE TEXT**. I’d like help with formatting the text into a captivating design that looks professional and is supported by illustrations where needed. The images MUST be scientifically/anatomical accurate

I’ll be regularly creating social media content by showing each page of the book so I want each page to be visually appealing and bursting with information

For this competition you’ll be creating a few pages for my first ebook ‘NEVER FORGET CARDIOLOGY’

Quality and accuracy of the content and illustrations are of paramount importance.
The end result should be an informative, professional ebook engaging to the medical professionals who will ultimately be using it

Your task:

1) design a captivating front page which is clearly for medical students/professionals called NEVER FORGET CARDIOLOGY

(Note that my unique selling point is that the book is designed to help people study more in less time and remember more content for longer)

**please use the attached screenshots for inspiration on my usual theme **

AND 2)

Use the following notes on the topic of ‘aortic stenosis’ to create 1-2 pages of the study guide with illustrations.

Note ”light bulb emoji” indicates a top tip to know for their exams
”lock emoji” indicates information that will help them remember a concept for longer


## Aortic stenosis


**?Typical presentation:**

Elderly person (or middle aged person with bicuspid valve) presents with syncope, angina and/or dyspnoea (?SAD). O/E has an ejection-systolic murmur heard loudest on leading forwards, in expiration (?RILES), in the 2nd right intercostal space, with radiation to the carotids.

**Stenosis** = narrowing vs **sclerosis** = hardening (note scleorosis has normal S2 and No radiation to caoritd… unlike aottic stenosis)

### Causes

1. Age related wear and tear = most common in **developed** world
2. Bicuspid valve consider = if <70 years old
3. Rheumatic fever = most common in **developing** world

### **Exam Signs:**

- Ejection systolic murmur
- Loudest on Left side (?RILES) 2nd intercostal space right eternal edge (remember ? APTM)
- *Thrusting* apex
- ? Heave if HF
- Pulses parvus et tardus (= slow rising pulse)
- Wide pulse pressure (High systolic, low diastolic)

### Symptoms

Remember ?SAD

- Syncope
- Angina
- Dyspnoea

### Severe features

- <1cm aperture of valve (*tight*)
- >4m/s ejection velocity (?I*magine squeezing a hose pipe - the small the diameter the further the stream*)
- Quiet/loss of S2 (*aortic valve closes in S*2)

Echo findings - LV hypertrophy or reduced ejection fraction (as per consequences below)

Aortic stenosis = high afterload → hypertrophy of LV to compensate

### Complications:

- High afterload → Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as ventricle remodels with more muscle to compensate → heart failure
- Syncope → fall → hip fracture/subdural haemorrhage/other trauma
- Unlikely candidate for regional anesthesia (like an epidural): Regional anaesthetic = reduction in total peripheral resistance. If combined with aortic valve obstruction = severe hypotension → fatality
- ?Heydes syndrome = bleeding telangiectasia + iron deficiency anaemia (from chronic blood loss) + aortic stenosis
- Sudden death

### Management

If fit → Transarterial valve insertion (TAVI)

If fit but TAVI contraindicated → Open heart sugery (valve replacement)

If not fit for surgery or asymptomatic → medical management of heart failure

    What's your book's print size equivalent or primary planned use case? I'd start by thinking of the page layouts around which illustrating (which is my stronger suit) would be easier.

    My question is you are talking about 1st page is it the Book cover or do we have to design an inside page and 2nd is there any color preference you want in the book design ?

      Hi Faraz, I’d like two to three pages in total. Page one = cover page. Page two (to three if needed) is turning the notes on aortic stenosis I’ve provided into 1-2 pages of content with illustrators you think would be fitting.
      In terms of colour - please see the screenshots. I usually have the yellow/black/the blue matching my scrubs
