Guest: Robert Baldor, MD, FAAFP Music Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Heartburn is a frequent complaint in primary care practices. The etiology is broad, from reflux to H. pylori infection and PUD. While many clinicians treat symptomatically, this may not lead to patient satisfaction. A recent network meta-analysis published in The BMJ, concluded that a ‘test and treat’ approach resulted in the lowest reports for patients to remain symptomatic at follow-up.

Guest: Robert Baldor, MD, FAAFP Music Credit: Richard Onorato

As men age, over-active bladder (OAB) symptoms (urgency, frequency, nocturia) are commonly seen. Typically, these symptoms are secondary to the development of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Alpha-blocking and/or antimuscarinic agents are commonly prescribed to treat such symptoms. In this podcast we review the COBALT study which examines the benefits of behavioral treatments (pelvic floor muscle training and fluid restriction before bedtime) alone or combined with drug therapy to treat OAB symptoms.

The Prescribing Cascade: What Is It and How Do We Prevent It? - Frankly Speaking EP 173

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BCMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

In primary care we are tasked with treating multiple conditions, therefore many of our patients are on numerous medications. Some of these medications are prescribed to deal with side effects of other medications. Often clinicians may not be aware that they are treating preventable drug side effects and wind up prescribing even more medications. This causes a cascade effect that results in significant polypharmacy. Join us while we discuss this common phenomenon and strategies to minimize or avoid it entirely.

Alcohol and A-fib: Is Abstinence the Best Medicine? - Frankly Speaking EP 166

Guest: Robert Baldor, MD, FAAFP Music Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Alcohol consumption has been associated with negative cardiovascular outcomes, yet many clinicians still counsel patients that it is okay in moderation. Past observational studies have supported this idea, showing a dose-dependent relationship between alcohol consumption and the incidence of a-fib. In this episode we will explore the latest RCT out of Australia, which suggest that no level of alcohol intake is safe when it comes to a-fib.
