Amiodarone Phlebitis Treatment
Local care.: Superficial phlebitis is a clot in a superficial vein. It is treated by local care with heat and nsaids. If the superficial thrombophlebitis is in the vicinity of a deep vein such as the saphenous vein near the groin, the treatment may require more than nsaids and heat. You should see a vein specialist for evaluation and recommendations for treatment. ...Read more
Cardiac arrest: Cardiac arrest means you're dead and the heart isn't contracting, amiodarone doesn't help that. It can sometimes convert vtach or stabilize the cardiac rhythm after electrical conversion of ventricular fibrillation but once VFib is converted the arrest is over and you're treating instablility. The only drug that may help arrest is epinephrine. ...Read more
Depends on the type: Coumadin (warfarin) is effective in preventing stroke from blood clots that originate in the heart. These can be from atrial fibrillation, clot on a heart valve, or from a damaged left ventricle.T he new anticoagulants (Eliquis, Pradaxa) are also effective in treating atrial fibrillation that is not assoicated with a valve problem.Coumadin (warfarin) is not recommended for strokes from carotid artery disease . ...Read more
Definitive Control: We don't generally do this with surgery, but rather with a "catheter" based procedure (wire we thread into the heart that cauterizes the av node). This procedure provides complete control of the heart rate in the lower chamber and excellent symptom control, but makes people dependent on the pacemaker that *must* be implanted with this procedure. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is using flecanide with amiodarone effective incase of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation refractory to amiodarone 200 mg alone,what doses should be used?
Zero guarantees. All: the Type 1 antiarrhythmic agents, as documented in the CAST Trial & analysis of other trials, neither work for most individuals (CAST Trial selected out the minorities for which these agents did decrease arrhythmias by Holter) increased mortality event rates. These agents promoted for symptoms, not health. Focus on underlying issues wiser. See: https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/689879. ...Read more
Consult doctor: This issue is too complicated to be discussed in this forum. It is certainly not an issue for self treatment. Please consult your doctor who knows rest of your health history. ...Read more
Varicose Veins: Vein ablation therapy is extremely effective (>95%) for treatment of defective saphenous veins, and is the current gold-standard (main accepted therapy) for treatment of varicose veins & venous insufficiency from saphenous vein disease. It uses heat energy (laser or radiofrequency energy). Some veins cannot be treated with heat ablation, and would need surgery or injections (sclerotherapy) done. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

My father 70yr , diagnosed ventricular bigeminy.Is it dangerous?Can amiodarone help controlling it?Treatment options for ventricular tachycardia?
Depends: The underlying cause for the rythm needs to be worked up and treated. If all correctable conditions are fixed., then eps may be indicated and ablation if reasonable. A defibrillator if poor heart function. Otherwise amio is reasonable but has its issues. It can affect the lungs, liver and thyroid to mention a few. Close monitoring is reccomended. ...Read more
Usually both: Spider veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy. If there are varicose veins, an ultrasound should be done to determine if poorly functioning underlying veins are present. If so, often evlt (endogenous laser) is used to treat them. In some cases ultrsound-guided sclerotherapy is done to the underlying veins. Surface varicose veins are treated with ambulatory phlebecomty and/or sclerotherapy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
