In this session, you will receive the most important cardiology updates from 2018-2019, including trial evidence for dietary supplements in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and new information about the blood cholesterol guidelines. The session will also provide advice on how to differentiate between opportunistic and systematic screening for atrial fibrillation as well as identify ways to conduct this screening in practice. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 8th 2020 and they are subject to change as new information is published.

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.

Updates in Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation

1.50 CME/MOC
1.50 AANP | 1.17 Pharmacology

Heart failure is a global pandemic that continues to increase in prevalence. Despite the availability of established and novel therapies, mortality and morbidity in heart failure remains high. Join us for this overview of heart failure classification and pathophysiology, the evidence base supporting various treatments, and current guideline recommendations. Despite being the most common sustained arrhythmia in practice, the ideal management strategy for atrial fibrillation remains elusive for many clinicians. Accordingly, this session will review the classification and initial workup of patients with atrial fibrillation, with further discussion of the primary treatment goals. Stroke prevention therapies will be reviewed, along with means to achieve rate and rhythm control. Tune in to learn about ongoing gaps in the care of patients with heart failure and/or atrial fibrillation and how a standardized approach can help improve outcomes.

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

0.25 CME

Join us to discuss the results of the Perioperative Anticoagulation Use for Surgery Evaluation (PAUSE) cohort study, aimed at understanding the safety of using a simplified perioperative management approach for patients with atrial fibrillation taking DOACs. After this episode, you’ll be able to make sense of the controversy over current guidelines around surgical care in this patient population. More importantly, you’ll walk away with practical knowledge to help these patients minimize their risk of adverse events.

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.
