Optimize Care of Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease
You may see patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) admitted on a long list of meds.
These patients have plaque buildup which leads to narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the limbs. It puts them at high risk of complications, such as heart attacks or limb amputation.
Plus they may develop symptoms...such as leg cramps or pain...that reduce walking distance and quality of life.
