Sex differences in long-term outcomes in older adults undergoing invasive treatment for non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome: An ICON-1 sub-study

Background: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of female mortality worldwide for females, but females are underrepresented in studies of acute coronary syndrome. The results of studies looking at gender-related differences in clinical outcomes of patients with non-ST elevation ACS have varied, and it is unclear if long-term effects for older people with NSTEACS differ between males and females. Methods: The ICON-1, a multi-centre prospective cohort study, consisted of patients aged u226575 years undergoing coronary angiography since NSTEACS. Conclusion: Males and females who were invasively treated with NSTEACS were similar in older adults with invasive treatment.

Pharmacist and Physician Interpretation of Abbreviations for Acetaminophen Intended for Use in a Consumer Icon

Overdose is often attributed to the concurrent use of several acetaminophen drugs. For all acetaminophen medications, an abbreviation for acetaminophen medications has been suggested to assist patients in determining acetaminophen medications and thus avoiding concomitant use. Pharmacists' interpretations of prescription orders using the candidate abbreviations APAP, Ac, Ace, and Acm were judged for significant ambiguities that could result in patient harm. Ac was in common use to indicate u201cbefore meals and was misinterpreted as such, but some physicians claimed they use Ac to identify anticoagulant drugs. Acetaminophen was interpreted by most pharmacists as acetaminophen, but none mistook it for ACE-inhibitors. However, Acm was seldom misinterpreted, was readily associated with u201cacetaminophenu201d, and seemed to be appropriate for use in a graphic symbol to help patients/patients identify acetaminophen medications.
