Aspirin: Overhyped and Overused
STEP 1: Listen to the podcast
STEP 2 (Members Only): Take the CME/MOC Quiz
Aspirin’ to figure out if ASA can help prevent a heart attack? Interpreting all the new trials doesn’t have to cause chest pain! Join Dr. Ambarish Pandey from UT Southwestern as he helps The Curbsiders ASCEND the mountains of the latest studies to ARRIVE at some well-informed conclusions on the role of aspirin in primary prevention for cardiac events. The team also discusses secondary prevention, aspirin and dual (or triple) antiplatelet therapy, and whether it’s okay to stop giving aspirin to older adults without known CAD (Spoiler alert: it’s okay).
