Passport Mommy with Michelle Jerson
Marking a significant advance in infant safety, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given De Novo approval to Happiest Baby's SNOO Smart Sleeper. This is the first time the FDA has given De Novo approval to a product designed to keep sleeping babies safely positioned on the back. Babies who are positioned to sleep on the back are at a lower risk of SIDS. Amy Schumer, Tia Mowry, Ashton Kutcher, Gigi Hadid, Serena Williams, and Kate Hudson are just a few who have used and praised the SNOO Smart Sleeper. Michelle speaks with Dr. Harvey Karp about how to calm your baby and the great benefits of the SNOO.Due to severe food allergies, Hero Bread Founder Cole Glass has an extremely limited diet. He can't eat raw fruits, vegetables or nuts, which means he's limited to protein, fat and carbs. Glass was worried about the health impacts of all the carbohydrate-dense foods he was eating and started searching for a low net carb bread. The problem was, most of the alternative flour products were made from foods he couldn't eat. So, he decided to bake. Without a culinary background, it took two years of experimentation and 73,000 muffins, but practice paid off and he found the perfect recipe. His bread has zero grams of sugar, 12 grams of protein and only 1 net carb per serving.That journey led him to big-name investors, expansion into quick-service and his latest Series B fundraise (bringing total funding to date to $47.5 million). Hero Bread is also expanding to 2,300 grocery retail stores nationwide. Milan Kordestani, an expert for “Gen Next” (Millennials, Gen Z, and Gen Alpha).

With a focus on building sustainable businesses that drive positive social change at scale, Milan is a three-time founder who wants to encourage solutions beyond his companies through storytelling and narration of civil discourse. Milan is also the author of “I'm Just Saying: A Guide to Maintaining Civil Discourse in an Increasingly Divided World,” (April, 2023 HCI) a straightforward look at the history and art of maintaining courteous communication in an increasingly divided world. In this book, he uses contemporary case studies and personal experience to teach readers how to have constructive conversations by engaging in civil discourse, and provides practical advice and strategies for respect in a divided world.Dr. Mothaffar F. Rimawi is a Professor of Medicine, co-Leader of the Breast Cancer Research Program, and Executive Medical Director of the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center (DLDCCC) at Baylor College of Medicine. Metastatic breast cancer (mBC) is the most serious form of the disease and occurs when the cancer has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body, such as the brain, bones, or liver.1 mBC has no cure and takes a life in the United States approximately every 12 minutes, creating an urgent need for treatment proven to extend life while maintaining quality of life. Despite remaining gaps, there have been important advancements in treatment for patients with hormone receptor positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 negative (HR+/HER2-) mBC. For example, KISQALI® (ribociclib), a prescription medicine indicated for HR+/HER2- mBC in combination with endocrine therapy (ET), has consistently demonstrated across three phase III clinical trials a significant benefit in overall survival (OS) – the length of time that patients diagnosed with mBC continue to be alive – while preserving or improving quality of life.
On this episode of BackTable Urology, Dr. Mike Hsieh (UC San Diego) interviews Dr. Larry Lipshultz (Baylor College of Medicine) about his journey to becoming a renowned specialist in male infertility and reproductive medicine. --- CHECK OUT OUR SPONSOR Veracyte https://www.veracyte.com/decipher --- SHOW NOTES First, Dr. Lipshultz explains how he became interested in urology through working in a basic sciences surgery laboratory with a urologist. He became passionate about doing research in male infertility as an intern after hearing a Grand Rounds lecture. Before his residency ended, he was sent to El Paso, Texas by the military, where he was able to start his own semen analysis laboratory to treat male infertility patients. He then accepted an AUA fellowship and followed a mentor to UT Houston for training in male infertility. He eventually transitioned to Baylor College of mEDICINEand stayed after fellowship to join the faculty. Next, Dr. Lipshultz reflects on major events in his life, such as the opportunity to perform trailblazing surgeries, like gender-affirming surgeries and vasovasostomies, and graduating productive male infertility fellows. He gives advice on balancing clinical duties and research, the importance of goal setting, and mentoring junior faculty. Finally, the doctors discuss the future of men's health. Dr. Lipshultz disagrees with the concept of direct-to-consumer marketing and “low T clinics”, as he believes they do not exist to serve the patient's best interest. He is excited about new research implicating that testosterone may have other health benefits besides treating erectile dysfunction and that male infertility may be an indirect measure of men's health. He encourages urologists to explore running their own IVF clinics and incorporate biotechnology into their practices as well.
The following question refers to Section 5.1 of the 2022 AHA/ACC/HFSA Guideline for the Management of Heart Failure. The question is asked by Keck School of Medicine USC medical student & CardioNerds Intern Hirsh Elhence, answered first by Greater Baltimore Medical Center medicine resident / Johns Hopkins MPH student and CardioNerds Academy House Chief Dr. Alaa Diab, and then by expert faculty Dr. Biykem Bozkurt. Dr. Bozkurt is the Mary and Gordon Cain Chair, Professor of Medicine, Director of the Winters Center for Heart Failure Research, and an advanced heart failure and transplant cardiologist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.

Question #17 A 63-year-old man with CAD s/p CABG 3 years prior, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, obesity, and tobacco use disorder presents for routine follow-up. His heart rate is 65 bpm and blood pressure is 125/70 mmHg. On physical exam, he is breathing comfortably with clear lungs, with normal jugular venous pulsations, a regular rate and rhythm without murmurs or gallops, and no peripheral edema. Medications include aspirin 81mg daily, atorvastatin 80mg daily, lisinopril 20mg daily, and metformin 1000mg BID. His latest hemoglobin A1C is 7.5% and recent NT-proBNP was normal. His latest transthoracic echocardiogram showed normal biventricular size and function. Which of the following would be a good addition to optimize his medical therapy? A DPP-4 inhibitor B Dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker C SGLT2 inhibitor D Furosemide Answer #17 Explanation The correct answer is C: SGLT2 inhibitor. This patient is at risk for HF (Stage A) given absence of signs or symptoms of heart failure but presence of coronary artery disease and several risk factors including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and tobacco smoking. At this stage, the focus should be on risk factor modification and prevention of disease onset. Healthy lifestyle habits such as maintaining regular physical activity; normal weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels; healthy dietary patterns, and not smoking have been associated with a lower lifetime risk of developing HF. Multiple RCTs in patients with type 2 diabetes who have established CVD or are at high risk for CVD, have shown that SGLT2i prevent HF hospitalizations compared with placebo. The benefit for reducing HF hospitalizations in these trials predominantly reflects primary prevention of symptomatic HF, because only approximately 10% to 14% of participants in these trials had HF at baseline. As such, in patients with type 2 diabetes and either established CVD or at high cardiovascular risk, SGLT2i should be used to prevent hospitalizations for HF (Class 1, LOE A). The mechanisms for the improvement in HF events from SGLT2i have not been clearly elucidated but seem to be independent of glucose lowering. Proposed mechanisms include reductions in plasma volume, cardiac preload and afterload, alterations in cardiac metabolism, reduced arterial stiffness,

The Keto Kamp Podcast With Ben Azadi
Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr Matt Halpert. He has a doctorate in immunology, with a specific focus on inflammation and microbiology and the way the immune system operates and should operate. Dr Matt spent 10 years in the Texas Medical Center predominantly at Baylor College of Medicine, as an academic researcher, focused on cancer and cancer immunotherapy. With regard to how the immune system functions, its physiology, how it goes about identifying a threat, whether that threat is a virus or cancer, and how that immune system can then be essentially reprogrammed or correctly directed toward fighting that threat, the research team Dr Matt was with made what we now know to be an extremely important discovery. In this episode, Dr Matt speaks about immunotherapy to fight against cancer. He will also share about Immunocine Cancer Center, which provides one of the most advanced Cancer Immunotherapies available. They are supported by academic studies and several clinical studies which makes them unique from any other cancer treatment centre. Tune in as we chat about the difference in your immune system when you're younger and as an adult, using the immune system to fight off cancer, how stress can weaken your immune system, dendritic cells, and how can you support your immune system.

[5:07] Strengthen your immune system to help fight cancer effectively. Chemotherapy would be analogous to putting a bomb on a building knowing there are bad guys (cancer) inside in the hopes of taking out all of the bad guys, but with the added risk of causing collateral damage. Even if it isn't shown on the scan, the bad guys are still there if you don't get them all. Relapse is undoubtedly a possibility in the future. Using the immune system and immunotherapy is a little more like using the Navy SEALs to go into the building and very specifically identify and eliminate those threats rather than the widespread destruction. If we're going to get to cures, it's going to be in the space of immunotherapy and rearming the immune system. Our immune system, also known as our defense system, constantly guards against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens, including cancer. Dendritic cells are a type of immune cell that runs the whole system. They are the generals of the immune system army. [16:09] Why does the immune system lose its understanding? We tend to break down more frequently as we get older, our health tends to weaken, and we don't bounce back as quickly. That is a clear external reality, but there is also an inside reality. Mutations take longer to fix. You need to have adequate movement each day. You need to exercise. When we are young, we are generally always on the move. As we age, we spend a lot more time sitting down and we don't try to exercise every day. Therefore, despite the immune system's potential strength, your body is no longer benefiting from it as quickly as it could. [28:48] The First Cancer Treatment to Maximize the Immune System Immunocine Cancer Center send people a dozen or two dozen publications about dendritic cells and their role in cancer. That is their own science. They're not hiding from mainstream medicine, it just takes time. They gathered the ideal group of medical professionals, including oncologists, radiologists, hematologists, and scientists. In addition, they have a cleanroom lab that complies with FDA regulations, where each patient's customized immunotherapy is created. What they can do is reprogram your immune response to get going and get fighting. Instead of working in a lab, their scientists take a sample of the tumor and analyze it to find its protein library and very particular RNA components. The measures they followed to transform the blood cells into the appropriate type of dendritic cells over the course of a week are what make their technique so special. They give you a legitimately unique, strong immune response that actually does ramp up and start fighting cancer. [58:36] Does immunotherapy works for all types of cancer? Here's what you need to know! As of today, Immunocine Cancer Center are not treating hematological malignancies, which are blood cancers, and heart cancers, and they're not treating brain cancers. They can treat a lot of cancers. It can be in conjunction with other treatment approaches. AND MUCH MORE!

Should I get my kids a toothbrush with a timer?What should I do with a loose tooth?WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT TEETHING?!?If there's one area of the body that most pediatricians will gladly collaborate with a specialist, it's the teeth. I'm so excited to welcome a board-certified pediatric dentist to the show this week. Dr. Neema Dad (I know, it's perfect for this show, although it's pronounced like ‘dod') is pediatric dentist at MyKidsDDS in Dallas, TX where he is the dentist for my two little nephews!! He did his dental school at Baylor College of Dentistry and his pediatrics fellowship at Yale School of Medicine. We had an excellent conversation that I think you will find practical and educational. I learned a few things myself and why some folks are more at risk for cavities than others.

In this episode, host Dr. Sabeen Dhand speaks with neurosurgeons Drs. David Altschul and Omar Tanweer about updates on cerebral aneurysms, including device innovation, risk stratification, and the importance of the doctor-patient relationship in decision-making. --- CHECK OUT OUR SPONSOR MicroVention FRED X https://www.microvention.com/emea/product/fred-x --- SHOW NOTES Dr. Omar Tanweer is the director of cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery at Baylor College of Medicine. He works in a multidisciplinary group of neurologists, radiologists, and neurosurgeons. He trained at NYU and has been at Baylor for 2 years, where he does 100% neurovascular work. Dr. David Altschul is also from New York and is the division chief of neurovascular surgery at Montefiore. He completed an endovascular fellowship in Manhattan and has now been back at Monteriore since 2014. Both physicians have an 80 to 20 endovascular to open case ratio. In the case of ruptured cerebral aneurysms, Dr. Altschul describes a rule of threes. Around one third of patients pass away before reaching a hospital, another third arrive with significant neurologic deficits, the final third simply endure a headache. The severity of symptoms on presentation is generally predictive of outcome. They use the Hunt and Hess score, as well as the Modified Fisher Scale in their workup. They will generally only put in a ventriculostomy if a patient is lethargic and has a Hunt and Hess grade of at least 3. Both physicians use viz.ai to review their aneurysm cases at their home institutions, as well as at all local referring hospitals, as they are all connected via the viz platform. For unruptured aneurysms, they implement the PHASES score and rely on patient preference. Some patients are comfortable monitoring the growth of very small aneurysms, while others prefer the risk of treating it over the risk of monitoring due to the fear of having a known aneurysm. The two agree that developing a good doctor-patient relationship is important in these cases, because getting to know your patient can help you decide which of these small aneurysms to treat. Finally, we discuss new technology in the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. Coils have improved by becoming smaller, containing biologic agents, and coming in different shapes. Dr. Tanweer discusses the difference between balloon and stent assisted techniques. Balloon assisted is great for wide neck aneurysms or patients who can't be on dual anti-platelet therapy (DAPT) and are better in the case of re-rupture. Stent assisted, when tolerated, increases efficacy and reduces recurrence by keeping coils in place, as well as providing a scaffold for endothelial cells to heal across. The Flow Diverter, a vessel preservation device, is less porous and good for internal carotid and anterior circulation aneurysms. The downside is that it requires DAPT. There is also the Web device, an intrasaccular device that diverts flow across the metal in the aneurysm and at the base of the neck, but does not leave any metal in the normal part of the artery. These are mainly used for wide neck bifurcation aneurysms at the internal carotid, basilar, anterior communicating, and middle cerebral artery bifurcations. --- RESOURCES Twitter: @DavidAltschulMD @omar_tanweer Viz.aneurysm: https://www.viz.ai/aneurysm

The following question refers to Section 7.7 of the 2022 AHA/ACC/HFSA Guideline for the Management of Heart Failure. The question is asked by St. George's University medical student and CardioNerds Intern Chelsea Tweneboah, answered first by Baylor College of Medicine Cardiology Fellow and CardioNerds Ambassador Dr. Jamal Mahar, and then by expert faculty Dr. Michelle Kittleson. Dr. Kittleson is Director of Education in Heart Failure and Transplantation, Director of Heart Failure Research, and Professor of Medicine at the Smidt Heart Institute, Cedars-Sinai. She is Deputy Editor of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, on Guideline Writing Committees for the American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association, is the Co Editor-in-Chief for the ACC Heart Failure Self-Assessment Program, and on the Board of Directors for the Heart Failure Society of America.

Question #10 Ms. Heffpefner is a 54-year-old woman who comes to your office for a routine visit. She does report increased fatigue and dyspnea on exertion without new orthopnea or extremity edema. She was previously diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, morbid obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, and TIA. She is currently prescribed metformin 1000mg twice daily, aspirin 81mg daily, rosuvastatin 40mg nightly, and furosemide 40mg daily. In clinic, her BP is 140/85 mmHg, HR is 110/min (rhythm irregularly irregular, found to be atrial fibrillation on ECG), and BMI is 43 kg/m2. Transthoracic echo shows an LVEF of 60%, moderate LV hypertrophy, moderate LA enlargement, and grade 2 diastolic dysfunction with no significant valvulopathy. What is the best next step? A Provide reassurance B Refer for gastric bypass C Refer for atrial fibrillation ablation D Start metoprolol and apixaban Answer #10 Explanation The correct answer is D – start metoprolol and apixaban. Ms. Hefpeffner has a new diagnosis of atrial fibrillation (AF) and has a significantly elevated risk for embolic stroke based on her CHA2DS2-VASc score of 6 (hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, prior TIA, and female sex). The relationship between AF and HF is complex and they the presence of either worsens the status of the other. Managing AF in patients with HFpEF can lead to symptom improvement (Class 2a, LOR C-EO). However, large, randomized trial data are unavailable to specifically guide therapy in patients with AF and HFpEF. Generally, management of AF involves stroke prevention, rate and/or rhythm control, and lifestyle / risk-factor modification. With regards to stroke prevention, patients with chronic HF with permanent-persistent-paroxysmal AF and a CHA2DS2-VASc score of ≥2 (for men) and ≥3 (for women) should receive chronic anticoagulant therapy (Class 1, LOE A). When anticoagulation is used in chronic HF patients with AF, DOAC is recommended over warfarin in eligible patients (Class 1, LOE A). The decision for rate versus rhythm control should be individualized and reflects both patient symptoms and the likelihood of better ventricular function with sinus rhythm. For patients with HF and symptoms caused by AF, AF ablation is reasonable to improve symptoms and QOL (Class 2a,
The following question refers to Section 7.6 of the 2022 AHA/ACC/HFSA Guideline for the Management of Heart Failure. The question is asked by premedical student and CardioNerds Intern Pacey Wetstein, answered first by Baylor College of Medicine Cardiology Fellow and CardioNerds Ambassador Dr. Jamal Mahar, and then by expert faculty Dr. Nancy Sweitzer. Dr. Sweitzer is Professor of Medicine, Vice Chair of Clinical Research for the Department of Medicine, and Director of Clinical Research for the Division of Cardiology at Washington University School of Medicine. She is the editor-in-chief of Circulation: Heart Failure. Dr. Sweitzer is a faculty mentor for this Decipher the HF Guidelines series. The Decipher the Guidelines: 2022 AHA / ACC / HFSA Guideline for The Management of Heart Failure series was developed by the CardioNerds and created in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the Heart Failure Society of America. It was created by 30 trainees spanning college through advanced fellowship under the leadership of CardioNerds Cofounders Dr. Amit Goyal and Dr. Dan Ambinder, with mentorship from Dr. Anu Lala, Dr. Robert Mentz, and Dr. Nancy Sweitzer.

Question #9 Mr. Flo Zin is a 64-year-old man who comes to discuss persistent lower extremity edema and dyspnea with mild exertion. He takes amlodipine for hypertension but has no other known comorbidities. In the clinic, his heart rate is 52 bpm and blood pressure is 120/70 mmHg. Physical exam reveals mildly elevated jugular venous pulsations and 1+ bilateral lower extremity edema. Labs show an unremarkable CBC, normal renal function and electrolytes, a Hb A1c of 6.1%, and an NT-proBNP of 750 (no prior baseline available). On echocardiogram, his LVEF is 44% and nuclear stress testing was negative for inducible ischemia. What is the best next step in management? A Add furosemide BID and daily metolazone B Start empagliflozin and furosemide as needed C Start metoprolol succinate D No change to medical therapy Answer #9 Explanation The correct answer is B – start empagliflozin and furosemide as needed. The patient described here has heart failure with mildly reduced EF (HFmrEF), given LVEF in the range of 41-49%. In patients with HF who have fluid retention, diuretics are recommended to relieve congestion, improve symptoms, and prevent worsening HF (Class 1, LOE B-NR). For patients with HF and congestive symptoms, addition of a thiazide (eg, metolazone) to treatment with a loop diuretic should be reserved for patients who do not respond to moderate or high-dose loop diuretics to minimize electrolyte abnormalities (Class 1, LOE B-NR). Therefore, option A is not correct as he is only mildly congested on examination, and likely would not require such aggressive decongestive therapy, particularly with normal renal function. Adding a thiazide diuretic without first optimizing loop diuretic dosing would be premature. The EMPEROR-Preserved trial showed a significant benefit of the SGLT2i, empagliflozin, in patients with symptomatic HF, with LVEF >40% and elevated natriuretic peptides. The 21% reduction in the primary composite endpoint of time to HF hospitalization or cardiovascular death was driven mostly by a significant 29% reduction in time to HF hospitalization, with no benefit on all-cause mortality. Empagliflozin also resulted in a significant reduction in total HF hospitalizations, decrease in the slope of the eGFR decline, and a modest improvement in QOL at 52 weeks. Of note, the benefit was similar irrespective of the presence or absence of diabetes at baseline. In a subgroup of 1983 patients with LVEF 41% to 49% in EMPEROR-Preserved, empagliflozin, an SGLT2i, reduced the risk of the primary composite endpoint of cardiovascular death or hospitalization f...

Hello, and welcome to Beauty and the Biz where we talk about the business and marketing side of plastic surgery, and 6k B&A Photos and Just for Men. I'm your host, Catherine Maley, author of Your Aesthetic Practice – What your patients are saying, as well as consultant to plastic surgeons, to get them more patients and more profits. Now, today's episode is called "6k B&A Photos, plus Just for Men — with Sam Lam, MD". One of the biggest complaints I hear is the reluctance of patients to share their B/A photos. I used to believe that too. Until I met surgeons who have thousands of B/A photos of their patients on their website, on their social media and on Ipads in their office. How is that possible? Why can one practice collect thousands and others can't? In this week's Beauty and the Biz Podcast, I let Dr. Sam Lam answer that question for us. Dr. Lam is a facial plastic surgeon with 20 years of experience in private practice in Plano, TX. He focuses on face and hair transplantation, and still manages to collect lots of social proof from his happy patients, willing to share. Here are other topics we talked about: How to grow a “Just for Men” component to your cosmetic practice How he grew his own 600-video library and use it to market his services How his building differentiates him from his competitors (gorgeous) Visit Dr. Lam's Website P.S. If you haven't already, please subscribe to Beauty and the Biz and I would appreciate a 5-star review to grow the audience. Thank you!
Born in Fort Dix, NJ to an Army dentist father & stay at home mother, Dr. LeeAnn McQuade, the eldest of 3 daughters. Her parents settled in Texas after her father retired from the Army in 1989, and she's been there ever since. She received her undergraduate BS from Texas A&M and attended dental school at Baylor College of Dentistry, followed by pediatric residency at University of Texas at Houston in 2002. She practiced as an associate near Houston for nearly 7 years before starting her own practice…while pregnant…as the sole income earner for her family. Dr. McQuade has been an owner/private practitioner since 2008 & recently added an associate. She has a busy FFS practice that's grown nearly 100% based on general dentist referral & word of mouth. Like all MDIBs, there's so much more to her story than being a dentist. The twists & turns of her personal life threaded through her career moves & ultimately resulted in her being a single mother of 2 daughters, 1 adopted & 1 biological. The lessons she learned as a person & parent along the way influenced how she refined her patient care & how she runs her practice. Her mission as a parent, employer & pediatric dentist is to advocate for those who aren't yet ready or able to do so themselves. And to encourage those in her area of influence to expect respect from those they trust & to speak up otherwise… her daughters , her employees, her patients & their parents. Dr. McQuade's mission to support women & children also influences her philanthropic choices, she was on the Board of a local Children's Advocacy a center for several years, her office collects donations for their local women's shelter & recently they are developing a partnership with our local organization that helps children who are victims of sex trafficking. But more than anything else about her, most people know of her life-long involvement with horses, they've been the constant in her life, only taking a break from training & competing during her 4 years of dental school. In fact, Horses are THE reason she went into dentistry. She even has a horse in my business logo. Dr. McQuade and her youngest daughter travel to various parts of the country with their 4 horses to train & compete. And finally, she does her best to be a good steward of the planet, at home & in her business, in fact, she'd love to get her practice B Corp certified.

This week we delve into the world of electrophysiology when we review a recent multicenter work on the rare topic of atrial standstill. What is atrial standstill and how does it differ from SA node dysfunction? What risks are associated with this condition and how can they be mitigated? Are there factors in an atrial standstill patient that might prompt implantation of a primary prevention ICD? We speak with the first author of this week's work, Dr. Taylor Howard who is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and an attending physician in pediatric electrophysiology at Texas Children's Hospital about his most recent work. doi: 10.1016/j.jacep.2022.08.022.
