Episode 303: PREMIUM – Blood pressure, back pain, and chlamydia

In episode 303, James and Mike finally get back into PREMIUM mode. We discuss two new hypertension meta-analyses that help clarify (at least somewhat) what we can be discussing with patients. In addition, we discuss a great new study on acute back pain and whether or not we should add a narcotic or a muscle relaxant and one study on what to use for chlamydia. You can’t get any more PREMIUM than that.
