89 yr old male had a stroke 2 weeks ago and recently had a Heart attack.
He is in Hospital has become confused and goes back to his normal self from day to day.
He is on IV for Dopermine and has been having low blood pressure
His heart was shocked to try to get
the heart rythm back from Afib.Now he has Afib injections.
He also takes Tramadol for pain in chest which he gets from time to time.He is taking Aspirin ,Clopidogrel
and now the consultant has added Warafin as he says it it indicated in
a Myocardial Infarction in elderly .But my understanding that even at 89yr age
one Anti-coagulation alone would be enough as 3 blood thinners would give a chance of adverse bleeding somewhere above 50%.I would of thought that the Aspirin should be stopped.
Any one have any thoughts on this?
