Managing Hemorrhagic Complications and Bleeding Risks Associated with Platelet P2Y12 Inhibitor Therapy

Managing Hemorrhagic Complications and Bleeding Risks Associated with Platelet P2Y12 Inhibitor Therapy

Antiplatelet therapy is an essential part of secondary prevention of cardiovascular events.  In particular, dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) — the combination of aspirin with an oral P2Y12 receptor antagonist — is the predominant approach in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), coronary-artery stenting, or previous myocardial infarction (MI). The three oral P2Y12 receptor antagonists that are in use are clopidogrel, ...

Diagnosis and Management of Acquired Methemoglobinemia

Diagnosis and Management of Acquired Methemoglobinemia

The diagnosis of acquired methemoglobinemia requires a high index of clinical suspicion, confirmation with objective testing, and prompt specific treatment in addition to support.  There are important clues to the diagnosis, especially a “saturation gap” between an arterial blood gas and pulse oximetry data, and careful history of drug use or potential toxin exposure.  Because acquired methemoglobinemia is rare, clinicians ...

Advances in the Management of Acute and Chronic Hyperkalemia

Advances in the Management of Acute and Chronic Hyperkalemia

Hyperkalemia and its important cardiometabolic comorbidities are increasingly common, while the most frequently used acute therapy to lower potassium levels for over five decades is now recognized as being associated with serious adverse effects. Over the last four years, clinical trial data has identified newer and safer therapeutic options. The goals of better potassium management include facilitation of guidelines-recommended therapy ...

Controversies in Antiplatelet Therapy for the Secondary Prevention of Cardiovascular Events

Controversies in Antiplatelet Therapy for the Secondary Prevention of Cardiovascular Events

Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of mortality in Europe. Despite advances in prevention and therapy, each year cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes over 1.8 million deaths in the European Union (EU).  CVD accounts for 45% of all deaths in Europe and 37% of all deaths in the EU, is the main cause of death in men in all ...
