Early Identification and Intervention in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation in the Emergency Department
Presented by Kim Schwab, PharmD, BCPS-emergency department pharmacist, Sharp Healthcare, Chula Vista Medical Center; professor, Keck Graduate Institute School of Pharmacy, Claremont, California
Many patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) presenting to the emergency department are directly discharged without proper oral anticoagulation, despite guideline recommendations for anticoagulation. The implications of this study could help improve guideline-based anticoagulation and reduce the risk of stroke. The authors seek to close the treatment gap in oral anticoagulation in patients with NVAF presenting to the ED to reduce the risk of stroke.
