step 2CK: digoxin hyperkalemia
This is a question i found on MTB step 2 ck, it said: You have a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to MI in the past, that comes for routine evaluation, is asymptomatic, but with hyperkalemia. He is on lisinopril, furosemide, metoprolol, aspirin and digoxin. What is the best management? The answer was to change lisinopril (a IECA, so a possible cause of hyperKalemia) for hydralazine + nitroglycerin. This also lowers mortality, like IECAs, in CHF. My question is...

alcohol intake and AF.
I saw a patient yesterday with likely dilated cardiomyopathy who has or had a high alcohol intake. Conicidentally I have seen this article in Heart this morning http://heart.bmj.com/content/99/15/1093.fullwhich reminds me that the association between poor cardiac outcomes and alcohol really is a J shaped curve. I'm sure that my history taking regarding alcohol consumption needs to be improved - how detailed an alcohol history do you ask for?sadian (Source: Doc2Doc BMJ Cardiology)
