Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of General Surgery Volume 60, Issue 16: Antiplatelet Agents/ Mangled Extremities.
The goals of this program are to improve the management of antiplatelet therapy and the surgical management of mangled extremities. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Weigh the benefits and risks of P2Y12 receptor inhibitors.
2. Recognize the effect of inter-patient variability on the action of P2Y12 receptor inhibitors.
3. Prescribe an appropriate anti-platelet agent based on patient risk factors and potential drug-drug interactions.
4. Determine whether limb salvage or amputation is the optimal treatment for patients with mangled extremities.
5. Anticipate the risks and limitations of both limb salvage surgery and amputation
The original programs were presented by Douglas Humber, PharmD, Associate Clinical Professor of Pharmacy, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego, and Clinical Pharmacist Specialist, Cardiology, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, UCSD Health System. Alexandra Schwartz, MD, Professor of Clinical Orthopedic Surgery, UCSD School of Medicine.
