Offering patients anticoagulants could help prevent thousands of strokes and premature deaths from atrial fibrillation (AF), according to NICE.
As NICE publishes its 300th technology appraisal, we look back at the impact they have had on patient care.
One of NICE?s regular functions is to produce recommendations on the use of new and existing medicines and treatments in the NHS.
Patients with atrial fibrilation can now be offered apixaban (Eliquis) as an alternative to warfarin to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots, says NICE.
Thousands of strokes and deaths due to atrial fibrillation could be prevented each year by ensuring patients receive effective anticoagulant drugs, according to updated guidance from NICE.
Adults with atrial fibrillation (AF) should be prescribed newer medications instead of aspirin for the prevention of stroke, says NICE.
A quick look at the guidance and advice that has generated the most interest during the first half of the year.
