American Heart Assoc. Caution , Hydroxcyhloroquin /Azithromycin

Recommended Posts

On April 9,2020 ,  USA leading Cardiology Groups  made public their caution with regard to blanket use of the combination Hydroxchloroquin/Azithromycin for persons having a cardiac history of certain heart rhythm disorders.  There is a  risk factor  of sudden cardiac arrest  for certain cardiac patients.  The AHA source is written in "medical lingo " and  is very clear to any cardiologist as to WHAT to pre-screen a patient for and as well ,what to watch for in the patient if the drug is prescribed.  .

As a nurse living here, I'd be inclined to make a copy of that AMA CAUTION if ( God forbid)  you ever should get this COVID virus. ................................. Alison , the nurse
