Medication News & Update

      The authors of a December 2005 article appearing in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine concluded from their study that emergency room physicians need more education about the effectiveness of eta-blockers especially in the elderly with acute myocadrdial infarction. They studied 380 patients with MI and of those 270 did not receive beta-blockers in the emercgency department, 141 of those patients had contraindications to use of such agents,

     The authors conclude that although beta-blockers have been shown to reduce mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction they remain underused in the emergency department, especially in the elderly.

     This study is small but deserves some attention. Further details can be found at the follwoing link:
