Part 4: Pediatric Basic and Advanced Life Support: 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
TLDR
The Pediatric Basic and Advanced Life Support Collaborators aim to provide real-time information and guidance to parents and clinicians on how to care for their children during the neonatal intensive care unit and beyond.
Should This Patient Be Screened for Atrial Fibrillation?
TLDR
A 69-year-old woman with a history of hypertension, asthma, knee pain, spinal stenosis, obstructive sleep apnea, and macular degeneration and a remote history of endometrial cancer is referred for ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to determine whether she has persistent hypertension.
Oral Anticoagulant Therapy: When What Should Not Be Is and What Should Be Is Not
  • J. Reiffel
  • Medicine
    The Journal of innovations in cardiac rhythm management
  • 2019
TLDR
Given the limited use of DOACs, the years for which observations were made, and the differences between guidelines from this period and more current ones regarding the combined use of OACs and antiplatelet agents in AF patients following PCI, it is possible that the current relevance of the observations could be questioned.
Managing atrial fibrillation: the need for an individualized approach even in the emergency department
TLDR
A wide range of variability in achievement of Sinus rhythm in recent-onset AF implies that a series of variables may influence the chance of spontaneous conversion to sinus rhythm and may be characteristic of specific patient subgroups.
Can Shared Decision Making Improve Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation?: Implications of the Updated Guidelines.
TLDR
It is argued that SDM is most useful when it is conceptualized as an ongoing process that responds to the dynamic nature of the patients’ health conditions and to the patient’s evolving life circumstances, as shown in the Figure.
Trends in Prevalence of Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation and Anticoagulation Therapy in a Japanese Region - Analysis Using the National Health Insurance Database.
TLDR
The prevalence of NVAF in subjects aged 40-74 years increased gradually from 2014 to 2017 and in the Tsugaru region in Japan, DOACs prescriptions increased and warfarin prescriptions decreased over the 4-year period.
Patient characteristics, adherence, and costs of oral anticoagulation therapy in non-valvular atrial fibrillation using the Dubai Real-World Claims Database
TLDR
This retrospective cohort analysis utilized the Dubai Real-World Claims Database to extract anonymized longitudinal data on NVAF patients with at least one NOAC or warfarin claim between January 2015 and March 2019, providing important comparative insights about comorbidities, adherence, HCRU, and outcome events among NOAC and warfar in users from real-world clinical practice settings.
