Bridging Warfarin Patients for Elective Surgery
 
02:32
From ISTH 2015, Alex Spyropolous, MD, FACP, FCCP, North Shore LIJ discusses the results of the Bridge study, which evaluated if bridging therapy is necessary for patients on chronic warfarin requiring necessary elective surgery, who have at least 1 stroke risk factor. The study found that bridging using LMWH at treatment doses leads to no significant reduction in post-procedural arterial thromboembolic events and has nearly a 3 fold increase in bleeding risk. This study simplifies the peri-procedural management of patients on warfarin therapy, as the risk outweighs any benefit.

What You Need to Know about Anticoagulant Therapy Video – Brigham and Women’s Hospital
 
16:55
Gregory Piazza, MD, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), discusses what patients need to know when taking anticoagulants or blood thinners. Anticoagulants or blood thinners are used to treat patients with a number of cardiovascular diseases. Most commonly, anticoagulants are used as atrial fibrillation treatment for irregular heart rhythm. Anticoagulants are also used to treat patients who have undergone heart valve repair and have mechanical heart valves. Anticoagulants are also used for patients who've experienced blood clots in either the veins or the arteries. In this video, Dr. Piazza discusses: • Types of anticoagulants including warfarin and novel oral anticoagulants (rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban, and dabigatran) • Importance of medication adherence while taking anticoagulants • Laboratory monitoring of the International Normalized Ratio • Side effects of warfarin and novel oral anticoagulants (rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban, and dabigatran) • Drug and food interactions associated with anticoagulant therapy • Activity restrictions and anticoagulant therapy • Discontinuing anticoagulant therapy before surgery • Benefits and risks of non-warfarin anticoagulants Learn more about cardiovascular care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital: http://www.brighamandwomens.org/cardiovascularmedicine Read the What you Need to Know about Anticoagulant Therapy video transcript: http://www.brighamandwomens.org/Departments_and_Services/medicine/services/video-transcripts/what-you-need-to-know-about-anticoagulant-therapy-transcript.aspx
Do I need to stop taking warfarin before I have an operation?
 
01:24
Specialist Dr John Worthington explains that many medical procedures don't require you to stop taking warfarin beforehand (e.g. dental procedures, skin cancer removal). If you do stop warfarin, another type of anticoagulant should be used. "The shorter the time without an anticoagulant, the safer you are" says Dr Worthington.

Perioperative Management
 
05:27
Thirty million patients undergo surgical procedures in the U.S. each year, and the age and medical complexity of this patient population are increasing. Every year the body of peer-reviewed literature on perioperative care increases and new guidelines on clinical management are formulated. In addition, economic, regulatory, and legislative changes continually create new challenges for healthcare professionals. The curriculum for this activity was specifically created to address the needs of clinicians who provide patient care before, during, and after surgery. The Johns Hopkins program, Perioperative Management, continues to be the established leader in perioperative medicine. This activity aims to provide practitioners with the most up-to-date knowledge necessary to deliver effective, evidence-based care by affecting health care practices at the level of the individual and the larger health system.

Does blood thinners need to be stopped before extraction? - Dr. Pujari M R
 
01:46
Many patients are visiting the dentist when the tooth is more decayed, and you cannot save the tooth by root canal, then you have to go for extraction. So in extraction, in patients above 40, 50, 60 years, we have seen patients having cardiac problem. In patients having cardiac problem, they must have undergone angioplasty, or having high BP or undergone a bypass surgery. In that usually their cardiologist will give them blood thinners. These blood thinners have to be stopped before doing any extraction or minor surgical procedures. Treatments like tooth fillings, root canal treatments are quite safe. You don’t have to stop your blood thinners. But when you have other surgery, or tooth extraction, you have to stop the blood thinners 2 days prior and stop 2 days post extraction. So prior 2 days and post 2 days of extraction is very important to stop these blood thinners. If we don’t stop these blood thinners, there is high chance that the blood loss will be more as often blood will not stop immediately. Then the doctor has to stop the blood by hemostatic agents. So just to be on a safer side, it is not a big complication. Just to be on a safer side, it is better to stop and the patients can resume back after 2 days with these medications.

Blood Thinner Doses: Why is it Hard to Get Right After Surgery
 
01:31
Blood thinner doses are hard to get correct for patients. Common blood thinner medications like Warfarin or Coumadin are common, great blood thinners. Warfarin does a good job at preventing blood clots after surgery, which is why you’re on blood thinners after a hip or knee replacement in the first place. The problem with Warfarin or Coumadin is that it can be really finicky and difficult to get the dose right after surgery. Blood thinners interact with a lot of different medications and foods, making it more difficult to find the correct dose for each individual. To help get your blood thinner dose right, a relatively consistent diet is beneficial. Not changing your other list of medications too much after surgery can help stabilize your blood level. Getting your blood thinner dose right can require some adjusting after surgery. Follow-up with your care team after a surgery like a joint replacement if your blood thinner dose is not right for you in your recovery.

Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin
 
04:21
Coumadin: Information About Coumadin For Patients | Coumadin Interactions | Coumadin Side Effects | Warfarin Patient Information | Warfarin Food Drug Interactions Hey guys! This weeks video is a short guide on warfarin also known as (coumadin). I see many patients on warfarin everyday and they are very knowledgable about their medicine, which is fantastic! But here's some information about warfarin, how it works, international normalised ratio (INR) and interactions which you may find useful. WHAT IS WARFARIN: Warfarin is the main oral anticoagulant used in the UK. An anticoagulant is a medicine that prevents blood clotting. Clotting (thickening) is a complex process involving a number of substances called clotting factors. Clotting factors are produced by the liver and help control bleeding. They work with cells that trigger the clotting process (platelets) to ensure blood clots effectively. Warfarin blocks one of the enzymes (proteins) that uses vitamin K to produce clotting factors. This disrupts the clotting process, making it take longer for the blood to clot. WHEN IS WARFARIN PRESCRIBED: Anticoagulant medicines, such as warfarin, are often prescribed for people who've had a condition caused by a blood clot or have an increased risk of developing harmful blood clots. TAKING WARFARIN: It's very important that you take warfarin exactly as directed. Don't increase your prescribed dose unless the doctor in charge of your care advises you to. Warfarin is taken once a day, usually in the evening. It's important to take your dose at the same time each day, before, during or after a meal. The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. This means the dose of warfarin you're taking must be carefully monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. You'll have regular blood tests at your GP surgery or local anticoagulant clinic to make sure your dose is correct. The INR is a measure of how long it takes your blood to clot. When you start taking warfarin, you may be given a yellow booklet about anticoagulants, which explains your treatment. INTERACTIONS WITH WARFARIN Medicines Warfarin can interact with many other medicines, herbal medicines and supplements. Always ask your pharmacist, GP or staff at your anticoagulant clinic before you take them as they may interact with your warfarin. Also visit https://bnf.nice.org.uk/interaction/warfarin.html to check medication interactions. Foods and drink Foods containing large amounts of vitamin K include: • Green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach • Vegetable oils • Cereal grains • Small amounts of vitamin K can also be found in meat and dairy foods. When your first dose of warfarin is prescribed, it doesn't matter how much vitamin K you're eating because the dosage will be based on your current blood clotting levels. However, if you make significant changes to your diet, such as increasing your vitamin K intake or cutting out foods that contain vitamin K, it could interfere with how warfarin works. Consult the healthcare professional responsible for your care before making any significant changes to your diet while taking warfarin. Why you should avoid cranberry juice whilst taking warfarin is in the link lower down. Alcohol Getting drunk or binge drinking is dangerous while taking warfarin. It may increase the effect of the drug, increasing the risk of bleeding. See links below for more information.

What to Expect Before Cataract Surgery - Milan Eye Center
 
01:34
www.milaneyecenter.com | Dr. Milan Patel | 678.381.2020 | Atlanta, Georgia It is a top priority at Milan Eye Center, to prepare our patients to be properly informed of cataract lens replacement surgery. Before surgery, patients will be given a prescription for eye drops and should use the medicated eye drops exactly as written in the pre-op plan. Patients should plan ahead for a family member or friend to drive them home following the procedure. While aspirin may continue to be taken prior to surgery, patients that take anticoagulants such as Coumadin or Plavix should never stop taking the medication on their own. A primary care physician or cardiologist should determine whether the anticoagulants should be stopped prior to surgery. Beginning the night before the cataract procedure patients should not eat or drink anything including water, after midnight. Patients should also shower the evening before surgery. On the morning of cataract surgery, do not apply any makeup including blush, mascara, lipstick, eyeliner, or eye shadow. Do not wear contact lenses. Do not apply any lotion to the face or chest. Do take your heart or blood pressure medications with only a small sip of water. Be sure wear comfortable clothing with a button or zipper top. Leave all jewelry and valuables at home. For diabetic patients, please refrain from taking insulin or any other diabetic medication.

Should You Avoid Foods High In Vitamin K If Your On Warfarin
 
02:53
When i had my heart operation done about 10 years ago, i had a st judes mechanical valve replacement, i was told to try and avoid food high in vitamin K because it will have an effect on my INR levels. I now eat leafy green vegetables all the time i just make sure i eat them on a regular basis to help keep my levels in the same range all the time. I test my own INR about every 2 weeks and my levels stay pretty much within the correct range. To keep fit and healthy you need to have a good healthy balanced diet and that should also include leafy green vegetables. If you have any worries or questions about your levels or anything to do with you new valve replacement you should consult your own doctor for the best advice. I'm now fitter than i have been in years and do a lot of cycling and some weight training, so you don't have to give up everything in life just because you've had open heart surgery. You should consult your Doctor before doing any strenuous exercise or workout, if you have any dizziness or pain you should stop immediately, you do this workout at your own risk. Please be reminded i am not a personal trainer this is just my workout routine you should consult a personal trainer to obtain a proper workout for what you want to achieve.

It is used to decrease the clotting ability of the blood and to help prevent harmful clots from forming in the blood vessels. It is often used to prevent or treat deep venous thrombosis, a condition in which harmful blood clots form in the blood vessels of the legs. These blood clots can travel to the lungs and cause a condition called pulmonary embolism. Warfarin is also used to prevent or treat blood clots that are caused by certain heart conditions or open-heart surgery. It may be used after a heart attack to prevent blood clots from forming. Although it will not dissolve blood clots that have already formed, warfarin may keep the clots from becoming larger and causing more serious problems. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. This product is available in the following dosage forms: Tablet NCLEX Nursing Precautions Drug information provided by: Micromedex It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to see if the medicine is working properly. Blood tests, such as INR, are needed to check for proper dosage and unwanted side effects. Be sure to keep all appointments. Using this medicine while you are pregnant can harm your unborn baby. Use an effective form of birth control to keep from getting pregnant. If you think you have become pregnant while using the medicine, tell your doctor right away. Do not stop taking any of your medicines or start any new prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. Keep a list of your medicines with you at all times. This includes prescription medicines, nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines, and herbal or vitamin supplements. Do not take other medicines that also contain warfarin. Using too much warfarin may cause serious bleeding problems. Make sure any doctor or dentist who treats you knows that you are using this medicine. You may need to stop using this medicine several days before having surgery or medical tests. Check with your doctor immediately if you start to have diarrhea, fever, or any signs of infection. This medicine may cause skin necrosis or gangrene. Call your doctor right away if you have a pain, color change, or temperature change to any area of your body. Also, call your doctor right away if you have a pain in your toes and they look purple or dark in color. These could be signs of a serious medical problem. This medicine may increase your chance of bleeding. Check with your doctor right away if you notice any unusual bleeding or bruising; black, tarry stools; blood in the urine or stools; or pinpoint red spots on your skin. Avoid picking your nose. If you need to blow your nose, blow it gently. Be careful when using a regular toothbrush, dental floss, or toothpick. Your medical doctor, dentist, or nurse may recommend other ways to clean your teeth and gums. Check with your medical doctor before having any dental work done. Be careful not to cut yourself when you are using sharp objects, such as a safety razor or fingernail or toenail cutters. Avoid contact sports or other situations where bruising or injury could occur. It is recommended that you carry identification that says you are using warfarin. If you have any questions about what kind of identification to carry, check with your doctor.

And new evidence suggests they may not have to. Blood-thinning drugs given to cancer patients before cancer surgery were not tied to an increased risk of transfusions or major bleeding, a new study found. Cancer patients are prone to venous thromboembolism (VTE), which occurs when blood in a vein clots, according to the authors of this study. This condition can be fatal.

Tattoo While On Blood Thinners !!! It's Not Only Possible But It's Painless & Easy!!!
 
11:36
Actually, the tattoo of my barbed wire was done prior to my heart surgery and I was just looking to have one barb colored in red to honor my grandmother but the artist who did the work asked how long I had the tattoo and I told him only about 9 years, he looked shocked!!! It was faded so bad that it looked like it was at least 15-20 years old he said. So technically I got a cover up which is much harder to do and most often more painful. But the reason it faded is because he went to deep with the needle. Tattoos should never hurt unless you are having one that is on your bone. Tattoos on your feet will absolutely hurt no matter how good the artist but there is no reason to experience pain in your arm, shoulder, back or chest. The chest may hurt a little because it is a delicate area and you are going on to your breast plate but it will feel more like stinging than actual pain. It's perfectly fine to get a tattoo wherever you want no matter the circumstance. When I had my big chest tattoo done, it was a two session job and my pro time level was a 3.6, meaning that my blood was very thin and I should have bled like a stuck pig every time he put that needle into me but you know what, I didn't bleed, not a drop. He told me that he had healthy people he worked on that bled more than I did. So when a doctor tells you that you can't have a tattoo because you are on blood thinners it's because they read that out of a text book and know nothing about how tattoo's really work. So in my opinion, after everything I have through, and it's been a lot, I say if you want to get a tattoo then get one. Just make sure that you find the right person who knows what they are doing. And the advice he gave me on how to maintain and take care of the tattoo was far better than what the so called professional ever mentioned!!! Best of luck to you, I hope to here your stories, comments and thoughts and am curious if anyone else has gone and had tattoos while on blood thinners and wonder how it went. Please share your stories, love to hear from you.......

Learn more about colonoscopy at http://www.YouAndColonoscopy.com In this video, Dr. Gelrud and Dr. Echavarria explain which medications should be continued, which ones should be adjusted in dosage, and which ones should be stopped before your colonoscopy. Be sure to tell your doctor well ahead of your colonoscopy about any regularly prescribed medications you are taking and any health conditions or allergies, as this information needs to be shared when you are booking your procedure. It is very important that you talk about this early and not the day before or the day of your procedure. Some medications may need to be adjusted prior to your colonoscopy, such as insulin, heart medications, or blood thinners. For your individual case, you should ask your doctor if you should continue with, adjust, or stop these medications.

NCLEX Question: Bridging Coumadin until INR Therapeutic
 
03:57
EmpoweRN.com This is a video nursing exam or NCLEX style question going over the medication coumadin. I have placed this video in the format that helped me pass nursing school with honors and the NCLEX examination on the first attempt in 75 questions. I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Question Number 1 of 4: Title: NCLEX Question: Bridging Coumadin until INR Therapeutic A client was admitted for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis. The attending physician ordered the following medication: Heparin 5,000 units S.Q. every 8 hours, Warfarin (Coumadin) 5 mg P.O, start today. The nurse’s best action would be: A. Administer neither the heparin nor coumadin B. Administer both heparin and coumadin C. Administer only prescribed coumadin D. Administer only prescribed heparin Correct Answer: B – It takes several days for the Coumadin to reach its maximum anticoagulant effect, and heparin and Coumadin therapy sometimes overlap. For more questions & for the main video visit here: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal.

Antiplatelet therapy during surgery
 
14:05
Antiplatelet therapy during surgery Dr Umesh R Bilagi MD, DM (card) Sushma heart foundation Opposite Nehru stadium main HUBLI www.LearnOnly.com Continuation of Antiplatelet therapy  No study yet has shown, increase in mortality and morbidity with continued Antiplatelet therapy during surgery except for intracranial surgery. Withdrawal of Antiplatelet therapy before surgery  Associated with rebound platelet adhesiveness;  This increases the chance of stent thrombosis by 35% during re-endotheliasatation.  Stent thrombosis mortality is 25-40%. Antiplatelet therapy during surgery  Addressed broadly in two distinct categories  In first case patient needs PCI but in near future (with in 1 year of PCI) there is need of surgery (planned surgery).  In second case patient has undergone stent implantation. (unplanned surgery ) Planned surgery  Stable CAD  Do surgery and postpone PCI  Unstable CAD  Consider PCI if possible postpone surgery.  If the need of surgery is early than plane balloon angioplasty  In case stent becomes needed during PCI than bare metal stent (BMS)  If surgery can be postponed more than one year than drug eluting stent (DES) can be placed. Unplanned surgery, Patients on aspirin alone  Aspirin for primary prevention  Primary prevention patient has risk factor for CAD or cerebro- vascular disease CVA, hypertension diabetes but no single episode yet  Stopped 7 days before surgery and reinstated soon after surgery when post operative bleeding is not expected without much hurdles Unplanned surgery, Patients on aspirin alone  Aspirin in secondary prevention  These patients are the one with ACS, CVA or any type revascularization. In these it is advised to continue aspirin through the surgery without stopping. Except in surgery in a closed space, i.e. intracranial or intra-spinal surgery where aspirin is also stopped. Unplanned surgery, Patients on aspirin and clopidogrel  These are grouped into high risk and low risk patients. Unplanned surgery, Patients on aspirin and clopidogrel  Low risk is the one with BMS, ACS and CVA more than 6weeks. Clopidogrel is stopped 5 to 7days before surgery and aspirin continued. Clopidogrel is restated with 600mg of loading soon after surgery. Unplanned surgery, Patients on aspirin and clopidogrel  High risk are those with less than 6 weeks following ACS, CVA and BMS and less than 12 weeks following DES  In general surgery is postponed in this situation  If mandatory than continue aspirin and also clopidogrel through surgery, except in neurosurgery where clopidogrel is stopped and aspirin is usually continued Patients on prasugrel and aspirin  It is wiser to replace prasugrel for clopidogrel  Use cangrelor Cangrelor for bridging during surgery, BRIDGE trial  Cangrelor is intravenous reversible P2Y12 inhibitor, this drug can be replaced for clopidogrel before surgery.  In BRIDGE trial during the treatment period platelet reactivity was lower in the Cangrelor group i.e. PRU less than 240; 98.8% versus placebo19.0%  Although excessive CABG --related bleeding occurred in 11.8% Cangrelor group versus 10.4% placebo P = .763, not statistically significant. Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH)  LMWH can be used instead of clopidogrel before surgery. Small observational studies have shown increase chance of bleeding. GP 2B/3A inhibitors  can be replaced for clopidogrel but no studies to claim benefit Optical coherence tomography  OCT can be done, with this approach re-endotheliasatation following stent placement is confirmed, after confirmation of re-endotheliasatation, dual Antiplatelet therapy is stopped and surgery is done.

Moyamoya Disease Surgery for Children: Pial Synangiosis
 
07:50
Children with moyamoya disease require coordinated care. Treatment includes pial synangiosis surgery, which helps reduce the risk of stroke. http://www.chop.edu/neurosurgery Children with moyamoya disease have narrowing of the carotid arteries, which feed oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This restriction of blood flow to the brain can result in pediatric stroke. Neurosurgeons at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have expertise in pial synangiosis (also called indirect bypass), a surgery for moyamoya disease. In this surgery, an artery from the scalp is rerouted onto the brain and over time grows “roots” — new blood vessels to feed the brain. Moyamoya disease requires care not only from a neurosurgeon, but also from a neurologist. The Pediatric Stroke Program at CHOP, led by pediatric neurologist Rebecca Ichord, MD, offers comprehensive care from time of diagnosis. For children with moyamoya disease or other vascular disorders that raise risk of stroke, including arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and cavernomas, this team is crucial in reducing the risk of recurrence of stroke and maximizing quality of life.

The life-threatening dangers of Xarelto blood thinner
 
01:27
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner, or anticoagulant. Blood thinners are important drugs that are used to prevent blood clots, lower the risk of stroke, treat deep vein thrombosis, and treat pulmonary embolism, among other things. Xarelto has been on the market since only 2011. As with many new pharmaceutical drugs, Xarelto is no more effective than drugs that have been on the market for many years. Moreover, these new drugs are often rushed to the market before the true safety of the drug has been established through long-term studies. In this case, warfarin (coumadin) has been used for six decades as a blood thinner. Physicians know what to expect from warfarin, but this new wave of blood thinners, including Pradaxa and Xarelto, should not have been rushed to market without more testing. The anti-clotting mechanism of warfarin can be reversed in case of an emergency. Unlike warfarin, there is no known antidote to Xarelto’s anti-clotting mechanism. The dangers posed by this phenomenon should be obvious. A physician tasked with treating a patient on Xarelto who has serious internal bleeding or who requires emergency surgery needs to be able to reverse the anti-clotting mechanism of the blood thinner or the patient may bleed to death. This is why we are instructed not to take aspirin for 24 hours prior to a surgical procedure. The dangers posed by Xarelto are identical to those posed by Pradaxa, another relatively new anti-coagulant, which is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim. Pradaxa also has no know antidote to its anti-clotting mechanism. According to the FDA, within a month of its October 2010 approval date, Pradaxa was linked to more adverse events than 98% of the drugs monitored by the FDA, A few months after the Pradaxa approval date, the FDA had received 120 reports of deaths of Pradaxa users. A study reported in January 2012 in the Archives of Internal Medicine concluded that Pradaxa use is associated with a 33% increased risk of heart attack. A Cleveland Clinic study of more than 30,000 patients comparing Pradaxa to warfarin also found that Pradaxa is more likely than warfarin to cause heart attacks. In 2012, Pradaxa lead all other drugs for reported hemorrhage, stroke, and acute kidney failure. Pradaxa was rushed to the market to beat the release of competitors’ drugs, Xarelto and Eliqis. As a result, Pradaxa is the subject of thousands of lawsuits from patients claiming that Pradaxa caused them to suffer uncontrollable and even fatal bleeding. Xarelto was released in 2011 by Johnson & Johnson in partnership with German pharmaceutical giant, Bayer. Xarelto soon faced the same problems connected to Pradaxa and for the same reasons. In Germany, Der Spiegel reported that between January 2012 and September 2013 Xarelto was linked to 130 deaths and 1,700 report of bleeding complications in Germany. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration received over 11,000 reports of adverse events in Xarelto patients. It is a well-known phenomenon that physicians and patients under-report adverse events to the FDA by a factor of about 100.
