Updated their recommendations for preventing bacterial endocarditis

    The American Heart Assoc just updated their recommendations for preventing bacterial endocarditis. These are widely used by physicians and dentists throughout the U.S. and Canada.

    Now fewer dental procedures need antibiotic prophylaxis. Also fewer patients...those with mitral valve prolapse usually don't need antibiotics unless they have a heart murmur.
