Hi, i am deciding on using oral anticoagulants. My father has a HAsBLED score of 2 and a CHADS2 score of 2. He is 75 with AF. Not sure if adding OA, he is already on aspirin, overall adds benefit for stroke prevention, given the increased risk of bleeds. Any advice would be very much appreciated, also let me know if I should send add info- thanks!
