Episode 65: A clot, a clot, I want it not – primary prevention with antiplatelets

In episode 65, we start back at it with a discussion of using antiplatelets to decrease the chance of MIs and strokes. In this podcast, we cover the whole primary prevention aspect of these agents and we bring in our good friend and colleague Peter Loewen to help us with the numbers. Mike claims he, as a family doctor, is usually able to make a diagnosis of gender in his patients but refuses to do so in James’ case.
