Heart disease is the number one killer of women, yet under recognized and under treated. Women present late into the active disease process for a variety of social disparities.Plus, providers often lack the understanding of the difference of the female heart and pathology.This presentation is a faced paced program that intwines the social disparities of women presenting in cardiology with the unique risk factors and presentation of women. The pathophysiology starts on the electron rings of oxygen, then the cellular function, inflammatory responses, and endothelial cell dysfunction to the microvascular coronary artery disease that creates atypical pain patterns to large vessel coronary artery disease with the resulting mortality and morbidity burdens of women. All NPs providing care and guidance to women need to understand the unique risks, cardiac pathology, and importance of preventative cardiology to make a difference in decreasing the number one killer of women.

Antibiotics are among the most frequently prescribed medications across all settings and populations. Antibiotic resistance has been identified as a significant public health concern and can be linked to antibiotic misuse and overuse.  To adequately face this challenge, clinician must stay up to date with evidenced based guidelines when diagnosing and choosing treatment for bacterial infections. This knowledge is the basis of antibiotic stewardship. The WHO and CDC identify antibiotic stewardship as the foundation for addressing this public health crisis. Antibiotic stewardship focuses on judicious antibiotic prescribing both from an individual prescriber perspective and from the level of healthcare systems. Prudent prescribing asks clinicians to employ prudent prescribing principles which includes applying evidenced based diagnostic criteria, appropriate selection of antibiotics (class, route, dose, duration) and avoidance of unnecessary antibiotic prescribing. This interactive presentation will review these essential components of prudent antibiotic prescribing and use cases to aid in application of the principles of antibiotic stewardship.

Patients with end stage liver disease often present in an acutely decompensated state with multisystem organ failure that can involve nearly every organ system. This is aptly named acute on chronic decompensated liver failure (ACLF) and is often accompanied by a high mortality rate, especially when this state goes unrecognized or addressed for some time. While the definitive cure remains liver transplantation, early identification of decompensated liver failure and prompt initiation of critical care management is essential in the stabilization of these patients as they await transplant. This presentation aims to discuss the presentation and identification of multisystem organ failure along with available treatment modalities, including advanced therapies, available for stabilization of patients with ACLF.

Evaluation of thediagnostic test characteristics of THIRD, versus MRI or MRI with Arthrogram (MRA) for diagnosing hip labral pathology. Methods: 7-year retrospective chart review was performed. All charts that had the chief complaint of hip pain with documentation of THIRD, MRI or MRA, and arthroscopic findings (ie gold standard) were pulled, and data extracted for findings of each of the tests. Results: N of 81. Compared to MRI/MRA, THIRD had significantly better sensitivity (91% versus 65%, p<.001) and accuracy (89% versus 64%, p<.001). Conclusions: THIRD outperformed MRI/MRA and noninvasive, low-cost procedure to diagnosis hip labral pathology.

A primary headache disorder, e.g., migraine or cluster, is a common reason people seek medical care. In fact, migraine headache is the second leading cause of disability due to a neurological disorder worldwide. Differentiating among primary headache disorders is often challenging, yet crucial so that effective therapy can be initiated. Recent advances in the treatment of primary headache disorders that target calcitonin gene related peptide or serotonin 1F receptor provide greater opportunity to reduce the morbidity and disability associated with migraine and cluster headache. This presentation seeks to provide insight into the safety and efficacy of these newer medications and how they may be optimally used as acute or preventive treatment to address the unmet needs of patients with migraine headache or cluster headache.
