I’ve Got Rhythm: Catheter Ablation Therapy for Patients with Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure - Frankly Speaking EP 62

Management of patients with atrial fibrillation has long centered on the relative merits of rate control versus rhythm control. The CASTLE-AF trial evaluated catheter ablation as a treatment for patients with both heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and atrial fibrillation. Listen to this week’s podcast episode to learn about the results of this new trial and how the catheter ablation impacted clinical outcomes. Guest: Alan Ehrlich MD

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.


FAQ for Seasonal Influenza: When, Who, and How to Manage?

Guest: Robert H. Hopkins, Jr, MD, MACP, FAAP & Charles Vega, MD, FAAFP


Keeping up with the many new drugs approved for use in the U.S. each year is a constant challenge. However, only a small number of new drugs each year are novel, work by a new mechanism, and are relevant for primary care practice. This talk will provide a balanced evaluation of these important novel drugs and address efficacy, side effects, cost, and the impact on primary care practice.


FAQ for To Be or Not to Be Gluten Free: Food Elimination Diets for Allergies, Intolerances and Wellness

Increasing numbers of patients are talking with their health care professionals about specialized diets and testing for allergies and food sensitivities as part of their overall wellness plan. Good diet quality is a well-recognized element of lifestyle medicine, but there is growing confusion among medical professionals and consumers about "good" foods and if they should eliminate certain foods from their diet. This talk will cover several of the popular media approaches to healthy living, including diets like Gluten Free, Whole 30, Ketogenic, as well as relevant data for health-related outcomes for each. The differences between allergic bowel disorders and intolerances will be discussed. Clinical and nutritional counseling tips will be provided.Guest: Bethany Doerfler, MS, RDN

This podcast will provide an update on the medical literature and practice guidelines pertaining to exercise.

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 Best Practices: Geriatric Update

As the proportion of older adults increases, providing up to date and quality care to them is of great importance to general internists, who provide the bulk of their primary care. Update in Geriatrics will review important advances in the clinical care of older adults published recently. Topics will include advances in the diagnosis and management of geriatric syndromes, management of multi-morbidity, and systems of care. Chronic disease treatment trials focused on older adults or with a significant proportion of older adults will also be included. The strength of the evidence will be discussed as well as potential impact the work could have on current clinical practice and education. Articles selection criteria will emphasize high quality studies that may be immediately applicable in practice. Guest: Lee A. Lindquist, MD, MPH, MBA
