In this first episode for 2020, Dr Neal Tucker explores new research on alcohol abstinence in improving atrial fibrillation, and colchicine post-myocardial infarction to reduce inflammation and prevent recurrent CVD events. We also look more in depth at the role of anti-viral medication (neuraminidase inhibitors) in the management of influenza, why we don't prescribe and whether the latest research shows any benefit and, if so, in which patients.
