Study: ER could be front line for stroke prevention

ts' therapies were having the desired effect. "In this study, effective anti-coagulation treatment was the exception, not the rule," says Scott. "Only one-third of those tested were within guidelines."

Though the authors don't think that ER doctors should try to manage stroke-prevention therapy for AF patients on their own, they do believe that the ER can play a big role in helping find patients who could benefit from available therapies. This includes increased use of EKG and INR blood tests.

"We need a multilevel approach to decrease the death and disability caused by stroke," says Scott. "The ER is a logical component of this approach. This study is just the first step in evaluating the ER as a part of stroke prevention efforts, but we hope further studies will be conducted."
