New Article on ACE-Inhibitor Angioedema

Michael E. Winters, MD, is the lead author of new AAEM clinical practice guidelines regarding the ED management of patients with angioedema associated with ACE inhibitors. The guidelines were formulated after consideration of 562 papers on the use of ACE inhibitors, which led to a subset of 27 that specifically address the adverse effect of angioedema. They are published as an article in the November issue of The Journal of Emergency Medicine.
