NUEVOS GUIDELINES DE FIBRILACION ATRIAL

GUIDELINES ACC/AHA/HRS-2014.

 

1. The Guideline Atrial Fibrillation.

The task of the 2014 writing committee was to establish revised guidelines for optimum management of AF. The new guideline incorporates new and existing knowledge derived from published clinical trials, basic science, and comprehensive review articles, along with evolving treatment strategies and new drugs. This guideline supersedes the “2006 ACC/AHA/ESC Guideline for the Management of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation” (5) and the 2 subsequent focused updates from 2011 (6, 7). In addition, the ACC/AHA, American College of Physicians, and American Academy of Family Physicians submitted a proposal to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to perform a systematic review on specific questions related to the treatment of AF. The data from that report was reviewed by the writing committee and incorporated where appropriate (8).

UN NUEVO BLOQUEADOR DE ANGIOTENSINA.

We compared the angiotensin receptor–neprilysin inhibitor LCZ696 with enalapril in patients who had heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction. In previous stud- ies, enalapril improved survival in such patients.


GUIDELINES DE HIPERTENSION ARTERIAL

INFORME DEL JNC-8.

There is strong evidence to support treating hypertensive persons aged 60 years or older to a BP goal of less than 150/90 mm Hg and hypertensive persons 30 through 59 years of age to a diastolic goal of less than 90 mm Hg; however, there is insufficient evidence in hypertensive persons younger than 60 years for a systolic goal, or in those younger than 30 years for a diastolic goal, so the panel recommends a BP of less than 140/90 mm Hg for those groups based on expert opinion. 

PREVALENCIA DE HIPERTENSION ARTERIAL EN HISPANOS

THURSDAY, March 13, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- High blood pressure often is untreated in U.S. Hispanics, putting them at risk for heart disease and stroke, new research finds.

Hispanics are nearly as likely as whites to have high blood pressure, but less likely to have it under control, said study researcher Paul Sorlie, chief of the epidemiology branch of the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
