Heart failure (HF) is a complex syndrome brought on by impairment of the structure or function of ventricular filling or blood ejection. These changes can significantly decrease quality of life, resulting in edema, dyspnea, and fatigue. The disease is widespread and progresses in severity, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. This course is built on the latest HF guidelines and seeks to help learners better understand this prevalent, serious disease. Topics include pathophysiology, etiology, and epidemiology, morbidity and mortality, diagnosis through the use of biomarkers and other screening tools, impact of HF hospitalization, hospitalization care goals and team-based care.

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.

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.

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.
