Practicing Changing Update

Certain patients who experience ischemic stroke while asleep, so that the time of onset is unknown, now have the chance to benefit from thrombolysis treatment after the results of the WAKE-UP trial. The trial used new MRI technology to identify patients who had less brain tissue damage, suggesting the stroke had occurred more recently (approximately within the 4.5-hour cut off used for thrombolysis treatment).

When taken in the first 48 hours immediately following surgery, acetaminophen was associated with modest protection against postoperative AKI in kids (adjusted OR 0.86 for every 10 mg/kg, 95% CI 0.82 to 0.90), according to a team led by Sara Van Driest, MD, PhD, of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee.

20% of stroke patients are in AF at admission.

15.7% of patients who should be are not on any treatment for AF prevention and 13.5% are wrongly on aspirin.

Post-traumatic stress disorder may be a risk factor for developing atrial fibrillation, according to a study presented on May 9 at the 38th Annual Scientific Sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society.

Although catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) traditionally requires an overnight hospital stay, same-day discharge of most patients is feasible, according to research presented here at the 39th Annual Scientific Sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society.
