I need help with the stucture of this sentence
I need help with the stucture of this sentence. Any suggestion. I am using APA formatting.
The first question asked, is warfarin the best medication available to manage atrial fibrillation?
I do not have the APA manual before me, but I believe that APA and the Chicago Manual of Style agree on this one. Instead of a comma following "asked," CMoS (at 6.59) calls for a colon to introduce the question -- The first question asked: is ....."

Depending on the actual meaning, which is not clear, the first phrase could be expressed as:
- The first question patients (or doctors) ask is: or
- The first question you should ask is:
In the following sentence, unless availability is really at issue, "available" is redundant.
