Episode 81: New studies about Vit K/INR, PUD, GABHS and statins
In episode 81, Mike and James talk about new studies. They run the gamut from Vitamin K, sequential therapy for peptic ulcer disease, single dose steroids for Strep throat and yet another meta-analysis of statin therapy. At the end we clearly demonstrate our skill at critical appraisal by recommending Vitamin K for ulcers, sequential antibiotic therapy for primary prevention, steroids for INR problems, statins for Strep throat (come on, you knew statins would work for this) and a kick in the ass for Chris our producer.
