Less than half of stroke patients nationwide are prescribed recommended cholesterol-lowering medication

 

Journal of the American Heart Association Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Nationwide, less than half of stroke patients discharged from the hospital received a prescription for cholesterol-lowering medications called statins, and the likelihood of a prescription varied by patients’ geographic location, sex, age and race, according to new research in Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

For patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attacks (“mini-stroke”), the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association recommends statin therapy to reduce the risk of recurrent stroke and other cardiovascular events.

Many people leaving the hospital after a stroke are not getting prescriptions for statins, even though research shows the medication can reduce the recurrence of stroke. (American Heart Association)

Written by Leejay Lockhart
Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – By taking leave in May instead of April so he could see his little sister graduate from high school, Spc. Jesse Thepouhthay missed out on one of his favorite holidays – New Year.

Most Americans generally associate New Year’s celebrations with December 31st and January 1st. However, for Thepouhthay and his Family, Laos New Years in April is very important.

“It’s like this huge festival and in Laos April is the hottest month,” Thepouhthay said. “So that’s when everyone’s out and about you know playing in the water and [getting] in huge water balloon fights. Everyone is just wishing a happy New Year to everyone and wiping away everything bad you have ever did and starting fresh.”

Specialist Jesse Thepouhthay, an air traffic control equipment repairer assigned to F Company, 6th Battalion, 101st General Support Aviation Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, conducts checks in the motorpool May 16, 2017. Thepouhthay’s role model is his father, who immigrated to America from Laos. (Leejay Lockhart, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)

AAA reports Prices at the Pump Drop for First Time in Three Weeks

 

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices have dropped slowly on the week. Today’s national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.39, a three cents drop from one week ago; however, it is an increase of nine cents over last month and 18 cents more than this time last year. One year ago, the country was experiencing higher consumer demand and prices were increasing.

Fast forward to today, consumers are still experiencing higher gas prices over last year due to the OPEC agreement, but we are not seeing substantial increases at the pump due to increased gasoline inventories and low demand across the country.
