In this lesson, we learn how to discuss contraindications to thrombolytics in Spanish.
To assemble this lesson, I used a list of contraindications in the stroke chapter of my favorite medical education resource, MKSAP 19.
Luis Almeida joins us from Venezuela to help us with the Spanish for this lesson.
A video version of this lesson with subtitles is on YouTube. Check out our Shorts, where I share helpful tips.
