Facing New Challenges in Lung Health: Vaping and COVID-19

Khalilah Gates, MD | Clara Schroedl, MD


 

In the last year, two new diseases have emerged with significant and lasting impact on the lung: E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI) and COVID-19 pneumonia. This session will address new information and challenges related to both diseases. Vaping has increased in popularity, especially among youth, and in late 2019, EVALI was first described. While the outbreak has subsided, recognition of the symptoms, association with marijuana use, and radiographic findings of EVALI remain important. Further, providing tobacco and marijuana cessation guidance remains critical. The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-Cov2 virus, has burdened healthcare workers and scientists across the globe. COVID-19, often associated with severe pneumonia and systemic illness, has resulted in significant morbidity and mortality in the US and we can continue to learn and discover its full impact. Additionally, COVID-19 has unmasked major health disparities in our healthcare system that we must address.

Over 46 million adults in the U.S. experience overactive bladder. While not a life threating condition, OAB can curtail an individual’s independence, productivity, and enjoyment, especially in older adults who often already suffer impairment from other medical comorbidities. Despite its detrimental effects on quality of life, OAB is vastly underdiagnosed and undertreated in primary care. Join our panel of expert faculty in this live-streaming 60-minute roundtable discussion that can help you improve screening, diagnosis, and management of a condition that affects patients you see in practice every day.

Updates in Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation

Alison L. Bailey, MD, FACC | Ty J. Gluckman, MD, FACC, FAHA


 

Heart failure is a global pandemic that continues to increase in prevalence. Despite the availability of established and novel therapies, mortality and morbidity in heart failure remains high. Join us for this overview of heart failure classification and pathophysiology, the evidence base supporting various treatments, and current guideline recommendations.

Despite being the most common sustained arrhythmia in practice, the ideal management strategy for atrial fibrillation remains elusive for many clinicians. Accordingly, this session will review the classification and initial workup of patients with atrial fibrillation, with further discussion of the primary treatment goals. Stroke prevention therapies will be reviewed, along with means to achieve rate and rhythm control. Tune in to learn about ongoing gaps in the care of patients with heart failure and/or atrial fibrillation and how a standardized approach can help improve outcomes.
