Episode 88: A hodgepodge from down under – smoking, ASA, antibiotics, NSAIDs, warfarin, spironolactone
In episode 88, James and Mike continue their conversation with Bruce Arroll from down under and cover a broad range of topics from smoking to antibiotics for acute bronchitis, warfarin, and spironolactone. At the end of the podcast Bruce and Mike decide that much of what James has to say is up and over the top.
1) Stopping smoking benefit
2) Low-dose aspirin in patients with stable cardiovascular disease
3) Losartan – 50 vs 150 mg
4) Antibiotics for COPD Acute Exacerbation
5) Many patients unaware of GI risk from NSAIDs
6) Spironolactone for resistant hypertension
