Does Acetaminophen Increase Stroke Risk? - Frankly Speaking EP 276

Guest: Robert A. Baldor, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

The concerns over the use of NSAIDs have been well documented. The medications can raise blood pressure and have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke when used long term. These known risks, supported by the FDA’s warning in 2005, has prompted many clinicians to prescribe acetaminophen instead. But do acetaminophen products confer a lower risk of cardiovascular effects? Join us for this episode to review the results from recent trials assessing similar blood pressure effects from regular use of acetaminophen.

Breastfeeding Really Is Best—New Evidence for Improved Health in Infants - Frankly Speaking EP 275

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

The multitude of benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby are well documented. However, we’ve seen mixed evidence for the relationship between breastfeeding and certain childhood lung conditions, with some studies suggesting an increase in risk. A recent study found that exclusive breastfeeding was associated with decreased lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI), asthma, and allergic rhinitis. A potential connection between these conditions, breastfeeding, and the infant’s gut microbiome was also found. Join us as we discuss these findings and how to incorporate them into your practice to improve the health of women and infants.

A Smoke Screen? Is Secondhand Aerosol Exposure From E-Cigarettes Harmful? - Frankly Speaking EP 273

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

The evidence continues to grow and evolve on the potential harms of e-cigarette use and on their efficacy and safety as a harm reduction strategy. One aspect of e-cigarette use that has not received much attention is the effect of secondhand exposure to the exhaled aerosol from e-cigarettes. Previous small studies have suggested some exposure risk, but a recent study of >2,000 participants found that secondhand exposure to e-cigarette aerosol increased the risk of bronchitic symptoms and shortness of breath in young adults. Join us as we discuss these findings and their implications to practice.

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.
