Carotid Disease as a marker of atherosclerotic disease Topic: Carotid Disease as a marker of atherosclerotic disease as universal health problem. Diagnosis of carotid artery disease as: identify different ways to make the diagnosis, from the simplest to the depths. And relate each of the methods of diagnosis to evidence-based clinical practice. Mention which is the most accepted as the diagnostic standard. Each diagnostic method should be described following these directions and relating to evidence bases data that support these. A. Preferred method for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. (Evidence bases), Please use this pattern: ¢ Recommendation. (Preferred method for diagnosis, ¢ Evidence. ( international standard clinical measure of atherosclerotic carotid artery disease, accepted as standard / ¢ Values and preferences. Task force placed a value on the identification of ¦. And recommend clinical investigation to those individuals with this illness ¦ to avoiding socioeconomic consequences. ¢ Remarks. Emphasize the #1(recommendation) and relate to international recognized standard for the definition of carotid artery stenosis or atherosclerotic with available standards for American people. The task force elected: recommend ¦. Or another standard. Most research has focused on using: as a marker of carotid artery atherosclerosis. If it is possible, do reference to ethnic groups study and / or recommend future research to prove¦. B. Accepted as standard method for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. Please use this pattern: 1. Recommendation. (Method for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. (accepted as standard) 2. Evidence. (If it is possible related to increased morbidity and mortality. 3.

Most concern is the predictive of future cerebrovascular accident and cardiovascular risk factor. ¢ Values and preferences: related to: high risk value on the identification of atherosclerotic carotid artery related complications and coo morbidities because¦ / greatest potential benefits of treatment¦. / avoiding cost and consequences ¢ Remarks. Medical history, other risk factors. Mention all that should take from medical history that serves for diagnosis and evaluation. Findings of the physical examination. Suggested screening test, other test. The gold standard for measuring carotid artery disease is¦ (Write a basis of that criterion). Refered to studies in different population groups (Mexican, Afro-Americans, European, and Australian) that support or evidence the importance of early diagnosis of for diagnostic of carotid artery disease.
