Unnecessary stress test:
If Bush had visited a general internist practicing sound, evidence-based care, he would not have had cardiac testing…What value does a stress test add for an otherwise healthy 67-year-old? No study has shown that this examination improves outcomes.
[H]e will have to take two blood thinners, aspirin and Plavix, for at least a month and probably a year…While he takes these medications, he will have a higher risk of bleeding complications with no real benefit.
