“Vitamin K antagonist has served us for more than 16 years now. We are not sure whether the newer ones are the better than the old. So, old is gold,” says Dr. Soumitra Kumar in an interview with Dr. Rishi Jain. “The newer agents are very costly and also not approved for all indications. Also, unlike vitamin K antagonists, which are easily reversible via an injection, the newer anticoagulants do not have any antidotes in the market.”“Everyone tends to underestimate the newer OACs in terms of bleeding but bleeding does occur even with newer OACs and once you have bleeding, it is not easily reversible.” “I consider using new anticoagulants when the indications allow their use. Affordability and compliance of the patient also matter.”“Dr. Soumitra Kumar also points out differences between the new agents, saying he would prefer apixaban in a patient who is slightly older with low body weight over 80 years of age.”

Handheld echocardiography cannot really replace a stethoscope but it can definitely help in an emergency for ruling in and ruling out cardiac involvement. Therefore, helps in quick clinical decision making and also reduces the chances of doing unnecessary tests.
