#ISCHEMIA Thread: I gave a quick hot take during #AHA presentation & haven’t had time to expand on it. Queue some collected thoughts (albeit without gifs & references) on some responses I've seen to the study. Hats off to @alenghat for the great graphic on applying the study
@alenghat Be warned, I am being reductive and, some may say, provocative. You may not agree with me because you practice in a different way, your local system, and “in your experience etc”. Also, your test is better, I’m sure. Accepting that, read on. #ISCHEMIA
@alenghat Everyone in #ISCHEMIA had “ischemia” measured by a variety of means, and some went to cath, and some had revasc with PCI and a good percentage of CABG. There’s a lot of crossover too.

[*] Results may vary and are not guaranteed. See small print.

Not all fears are alike.

* Some fears are one-and-done:
I get a cold which progresses to pneumonia. Will I die, or recover?

* Other things hang over us for much longer, perhaps all your life.
Will you get hit by a bus?
Get a heart attack?
There's no "sell by" date on the fear.
Practice Qs

You are walking through Hyde park, minding your own business.
Hardly causing any trouble at all.
Perhaps the odd humorous tweet.

You get a Direct Message:
"Enough of ur abuse!
You will be hearing form my agent shortly.

You see the agent:

Intention To Tweet

1. Why is intention-to-treat the ONLY right way to interpret trial results?
2. Why are these fine gentlemen wasting their prayers?

Thank you to Ali Jazayeri for suggesting this subject on the highly secret DM contact address (@ProfDFrancis).
At first I hesitated over whether this was truly needed amongst such an elite body of scienntific minds as we have reading this thread.

But Pascal Meier insisted that it was.
He said he was watching a whole session dedicated to not understanding this at a conference. Sent a pic!
