per Lexie:

“For this month’s EBM we’re going to discuss head injury patients who are on anticoagulation.  The included podcast is short, only 20 minutes, and starts with a discussion of reversing anticoagulation in patients with head bleeds.  At the end of the podcast is a discussion on the dispo for elderly patients on anticoagulation with head trauma and negative initial head CTs.  I’ve attached two papers that attempt to address this issue.”

Papers:

April 2013- Paper #1 -low dose aspirin

April 2013- Paper #2 -repeat head CT
