Getting in the LOOP About Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke - Frankly Speaking EP 261

Guest: Alan M. Ehrlich, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Stroke is a major health problem, and the risk of stroke is five-times higher in individuals with atrial fibrillation (AF) than those without. AF can be asymptomatic or subclinical. In 18% of AF patients, the condition is only detected at the time of stroke. It is not known whether individuals whose AF is deterred via screening carry a similar risk to individuals with known AF. A recent randomized trial evaluated a screening program for AF in individuals at high risk of stroke; for individuals identified with AF, anticoagulation was given for stroke prevention.

Per CDC data, approximately 2.5 million Americans present each year to emergency departments with head injuries, and 15% of all high school students report experiencing at least one concussion. Current guidelines recommend physical and cognitive rest for 24-48 hours post-concussion with minimal guidance on screen time parameters. Recent evidence is emerging that supports avoidance of screen time and encouragement of aerobic activity as strategies to shorten and lessen post-concussion symptoms. Join us as we discuss 2 recent studies regarding screen-time and aerobic exercise that add critical information to best practice for reducing post-concussion symptoms.
