Cardiovascular risk factors leading to the leading causes of death in the United States have their origins in the pediatric age group. This session is intended to give primary care providers a high level view of screening and management for cardio-metabolic risk factors in the pediatric age group based on the most up-to-date guidelines.

Heart failure (HF) affects 6.2 million people in the United States, with 1 million new cases occurring annually and a resultant 1 million hospitalizations, which translates into an annual estimated cost of over $30 billion dollars. Mortality with this condition is high, approximately 50% at five years. Implementation of the advances in management of heart failure have the potential to improve patients' quality of life, reduce the need for hospitalizations, reduce total medical costs, and prolong survival. This lecture will review the current evidence-based, guideline-recommended diagnosis and management of heart failure. You will learn the essential roles of evidence-based heart failure medications, device therapy, patient education, and disease management.

Primary care providers see patients with elevated blood pressure numerous times a day—but do we address it consistently and effectively in a busy practice? Join Dr. Ty Gluckman for a practical approach to diagnosing hypertension, including a discussion of initial laboratory testing and when to evaluate for secondary causes. Additionally, Dr. Gluckman will discuss the effects of various lifestyle changes on blood pressure reduction.

Hypercholesteremia is highly prevalent in the U.S. and strongly associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Yet, only about 55% of U.S. adults appropriate for cholesterol lowering therapy are currently taking it. What do primary care providers need to know to improve the care of the many individuals with hypercholesterolemia that you see daily in clinical practice? Join Dr. Ty Gluckman for part 2 of this webcast series to find out.

Join Dr. Ty Gluckman as he dives deeper into the treatment of atrial fibrillation. This program will focus on rate and rhythm control and the pivotal role they play in alleviating symptoms of AF. Dr. Gluckman will discuss factors that would guide clinical decision making towards a strategy that focuses on rate vs rhythm control.

Estimating Jugular Venous Pressure: Point-of-Care Ultrasound Can Help - Frankly Speaking EP 272

Guest: Alan M. Ehrlich, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Clinicians need to accurately assess the degree of heart failure at the bedside to make appropriate management decisions. However, the common bedside practice of estimating right atrial pressure by measuring jugular venous pressure (JVP) has several accuracy limitations. This session focuses on the use of point-of-care ultrasound (POC-US) to improve the accuracy of JVP measurements. Join us to hear the salient findings from a recent study comparing POC-US measurements to right heart catheterization measurements, and walk away with a clear understanding of how POC-US can quickly and easily improve accuracy.
