Episode 552: A free PREMIUM podcast – HTN and HF

In episode 552, James and Mike go over a couple of new trials. We talk about a blood pressure trial that examined taking the pills in the morning vs the evening and a heart failure trial that looked at getting patients on “high intensity” treatment.

Episode 551: Statins in older adults – there is an answer!

In episode 551, James and Mike invite Danielle Perry back to the podcast to talk about the best available evidence for the use of statins in people 65 and over. As you’ll hear, we have lots of evidence so all you need to know is what it says. Then, you can have an evidence-based discussion with all your people in this age category. After that discussion, your patient can make a decision one way or another and that means both of you win and you don’t have to care what guidelines say about this topic. Check it out.
