Oral anticoagulation (Chest 2012;141:e531S; EHJ 2012;33:2719; Circ 2013;127:1916)

· All valvular AF as stroke risk very high

· Nonvalv. AF: stroke risk ~4.5%/y; anticoag ® 68% ¯ stroke; use a risk score to guide Rx:

CHADS2: CHF (1 point), HTN (1), Age ≥75 y (1), DM (1), prior Stroke/TIA (2)

CHA2DS2-VASc: adds 65–74 y (1) ≥75 y (2), vasc dis. [MI, Ao plaque, or PAD (1)]; ? (1)

score ³2 ® anticoag; score 1 ® consider anticoag or ASA (? latter reasonable if risk factor age 65-74 y, vasc dis. or ?); antithrombotic Rx even if rhythm control [SCORE CORRECTED]

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is a convenient pocket-sized, ring-bound book containing almost all of the basic physiology housestaff need to have at their fingertips. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide a concise description of the initial approach to and management of common inpatient medical problems. Considering the spectrum of the housestaff manuals available, this is significantly more practical than most.
Audience: This is a valuable asset for every housestaff member, although with necessarily very small font size, which might make it tough for some attending physician eyes.
Features: While generally organized by organ systems, the chapters focus on specific topics such as electrocardiography, pericardial disease, sepsis, renal failure, urinalysis, etc. This edition has new sections on sleep apnea, viral respiratory infections, and guidance on some medical topics currently under discussion such as intensive glycemic control and infections in susceptible hosts. There are numerous helpful tables, algorithms, and figures.
Assessment: This is one of the top manuals in a crowded field of housestaff-oriented publications. Its size and plastic cover make it utilitarian and easy to carry without destroying. I highly recommend it to medical students and residents just beginning their careers.

    Mandate for every 3rd year medical student through residency!

    This book is a freakin' lifesaver. It's in binder format, so you can always add/remove as you need. Has the article references on the newest treatment/management recommendations. You will be pimped during rounds, and this book has all the answers. Saved me more than once, let me tell you.
