This talk will provide an opportunity for the learner to (anonymously) test his/her knowledge in the management of people with type 2 diabetes using cases and an ARS. The cases will also be used to illustrate the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes and provide an opportunity for developing a practical approach to treating people with type 2 diabetes, utilizing the commonest and newest medications available. The cases will also help the learners use medications safely and understand advantages and disadvantages, and common side effects of each class of medication. Finally a practical approach to the initiation and intensification of basal insulin will be covered.

Lifestyle intervention is the primary step of obesity management. Multidisciplinary approach was shown to be effective on short and long-term. Several obesity medications are available and are effective for weight management with reasonable risk. Combining medications with lifestyle is more effective then either alone. Bariatric surgery is valuable for patients with severe obesity, but long-term consequences should be carefully evaluated against their benefit.

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.
