Initial findings of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) published in 2002 forever changed the way menopause hormone therapy has been viewed in the United States. After WHI, use of systemic menopause hormone therapy (MHT) decreased by as much as 80 percent among U.S. women. In the following decade and half, additional data derived from WHI coupled with new research findings resulted in confusion and misunderstandings for patients and clinicians alike on the appropriate use of MHT to manage menopause. This presentation will blend the findings of WHI with newer learnings and provide a practical approach to using MHT.

FAQ for What's New in Obesity Management?

Guest: Robert F. Kushner, MD, FACP


Most physicians are consumers of commercial air travel, and half of physicians have responded to a medical emergency on an airplane. Responding to a medical problem on an aircraft is one of the purest expressions of our Hippocratic Oath but provokes anxiety in many providers because of patient populations and conditions outside our normal scope of practice and the haphazard environment of an aircraft. Medical emergencies on flights are becoming more common as air travel is more accessible, people fly greater distances in larger aircrafts, and the inflight population ages. This talk will cover the pathophysiologic stress of commercial air travel, the approach to a midair patient and common inflight emergencies, interventions that can be performed in response to a medical emergency, the equipment available on the aircraft, as well as preparatory flight strategies for physicians. We will also discuss management considerations if asked to serve in other community medical emergencies such as encountering a motor vehicle accident.
