Is Vascular Disease the same as Mital
Valve Valvular Disease,is it included
NO. Vascular: Disease refers to atherosclerotic disease. This is not the same as valvular heart disease. Mitral valvular disease is NOT part of the CHA2DS2-VASc scoring system. Neither is COPD which you appear to have. If you are identified as having Afib (awaiting your monitor) your score is zero but current recommendations and ease of usage would argue for preventative anticoagulation. Discuss with your MD. ...Read more

My father s doctor put him on Apixaban 2.5 mg instead ofasa&plavixfor paroxysmal Afib his Chad score is 2,s,cr1.7 should he start it cuz Heafraid S/E?
Current: Recommendations are for full anticoagulation if CHADS=2 or higher. ASA and Plavix are not sufficient for thromboembolic risk reduction. 2.5mg of Apixaban is not appropriate unless one additional item besides Cr 1.7 is present. (age>80 or Wt <60Kg) otherwise the correct dose is 5mg TWICE daily. Benefit is superior reduction in both thromboembolic risk and bleeding risk compared to coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
Hyperbaric chamber and allergy asthma I have a clinic in vt that dose mild hbot what can happen of I scuba dive or use the chamber thanks chad?
I am not sure:
Exactly what you are asking and what you mean by "mild hbot". There is formal hyperbaric medicine with physicians meeting the undersea and hyperbaric medicine society minimum certifications and there are charlatans promoting hyperbarics without cetification.
Scuba diving and hyperbarics should not be taken lightly as they both place you in an un-natural environment and require proper environment. ...Read more
Is aspirin&plavix enough blood thinners to prevent stroke if Chad score (2),if no then what is the safest NOAC to avoid S/E for paroxysmal Afib
Anticoagulation : Anticoagulation is recommended for patients with atrial fibrillation and CHADS2 score of 2 or higher for stroke prevention. Aspirin and Plavix (clopidogrel) do not offer the same protection. NOACs have not been compared head to determine which one is the safest. Any one of them would be a good choice. ...Read more
