The presentation begins with a background on deep vein thrombosis, including discussing the natural history/progression of deep vein thrombosis. This helps to establish the risks and complications associated with distal DVT and helps understand what can happen when a distal DVT goes untreated. Then, a quick discussion of the guideline recommendations regarding this topic are included. Following this, three main questions are posed in order to help focus our search on primary literature:
  1. What is the difference in the risk of recurrence of VTE?
  2. What is the difference in the risk of PE?
  3. What is the difference in the risk of bleeding?
To help answer these questions, four main randomized, controlled trials are evaluated in terms of benefits of initiating anticoagulation treatment of distal DVT, risks of treatment, appropriate agents for use, and what duration of therapy is shown to be effective. Furthermore, a recent meta-analysis is used to help understand what this data tells us in aggregate. Combining this information helps us understand what treatment strategies are appropriate in terms of when and how to treat distal DVT.

Objectives

  • Describe the risks and complications associated with untreated distal deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
  • Discuss the evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of anticoagulation for distal DVT.

Liver transplantation for cholangiocarcinoma has been a topic of contention for several years due to the rate of tumor recurrence and death following transplantation. Until recently, cholangiocarcinoma was considered an absolute contraindication for liver transplant. Based on preliminary data from the University of Nebraska, the Mayo Clinic developed a neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen given prior to transplant in combination with tailored post-transplant immunosuppression target to decrease tumor recurrence rates and improve mortality rates. Due to outcomes observed from this protocol, the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) has developed MELD "exception criteria" for patients with cholangiocarcinoma to expedite time spent on the transplant waiting list. This was done due to the rapid progression of disease seen in cholangiocarcinoma and the potentially curative modality that transplantation would offer to this otherwise lethal disease state.
This presentation will review the current literature of liver transplantation in combination with neoadjuvant chemotherapy for cholangiocarcinoma - discussing risks and benefits of this protocol -  and assess appropriateness of MELD exception criteria for this patient population.

Objectives

  • Identify patients with cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) that would meet transplantation criteria after completion of The Mayo Protocol
  • Select the appropriate neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen for cholangiocarcinoma patients

There is limited evidence to make clear-cut recommendations on Direct Oral Anticoagulant (DOAC) use in obese patients. Based on pharmacokinetic data, the influence of BMI/weight on pharmacokinetic (PK)/pharmacodynamic (PD) profiles appears to be agent specific, favoring certain DOACs over others due to altered PK properties in obesity. Yet, without prospective correlation to thrombotic events, it remains unclear how influential DOAC distribution and clearance in obese patients are on clinical outcomes. Thus, it would be improper to make recommendations based on PK/PD data alone without further investigation. Nonetheless, recent studies that are to be reviewed in this presentation show promising results with similar efficacy and safety outcomes in both atrial fibrillation (Afib) and venous thromboembolism (VTE) patients between DOACs and warfarin. The goal of this presentation is to help the audience identify pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes in obesity and their impact on DOAC use, evaluate the evidence regarding the utilization of DOACs in obese patients, and formulate evidence-driven recommendations for the use of DOACs in obesity.

Objectives

  • Identify pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes in obesity and their impact on Direct Oral Anticoagulant (DOAC) use.
  • Summarize the evidence regarding the utilization of DOACs in obese patients.
  • Discuss evidence-driven recommendations for the use of DOACs in obesity.

Acute pain management and sedation are crucial aspects of the "ICU Triad" -- the concept that pain, delirium, and agitation are all connected and have affects on one another. Improper and inadequate management of the ICU Triad can lead to in-hospital complications such as increased mortality and delirium, increased risk of developing chronic pain, and decreased quality of life. The current paradigm present in practice includes appropriate management of patients with hemodynamic and respiratory compromise, patients at an increased risk of delirium, patients with opioid tolerance, over-sedation, and physiologic dependence.
Ketamine is re-emerging in practice as it provides unique benefits to certain mechanically-ventilated populations in the ICU setting, however its use is not well outlined in the current SCCM Clinical Practice Guidelines.
My aim of this CE activity is to provide my audience with primary literature-based evidence to help pharmacists understand and implement the use of ketamine in the ICU.

Objectives

  • Identify the benefits and adverse effects associated with the use of ketamine in mechanically ventilated, critically-ill patients.
  • Compare the use of continuous ketamine infusions in the ICU with the standard of care and its impact on analgosedation management.
  • Summarize the data related to the efficacy and safety of ketamine as an option for analgosedation in mechanically ventilated patients in the ICU.

This session will review the early and new literature pertaining to corticosteroid use in the setting of ARDS. I will be discussing the pathophysiology of ARDS, risks and benefits of steroid use, dosing regimens, effects of early vs late initiation of steroids, and duration of regimens. I will also discuss future directions of ARDS research as it pertains to glucocorticoid use.

Objectives

  • Identify the place in therapy for corticosteroids in ARDS .
  • Compare and contrast the hyperinflammatory and hypoinflammatory phenotypes of ARDS.

There has been a longstanding debate on if a patient with out of hospital cardiac arrest should be routinely administered sodium bicarbonate. In the past, ACLS and AHA guidelines supported the use of sodium bicarbonate, however, updated guidelines recommend against it. Some literature suggests that the routine use of sodium bicarbonate increases the percentage of return of spontaneous circulation. Other literature disputes the notion that routine use of sodium bicarbonate is beneficial and suggests that its use is in fact harmful. This seminar will focus on patient survival and neurological function in patients who experienced out of hospital cardiac arrest and were administered sodium bicarbonate versus those who received standard care to assess its place in therapy.

Objectives

  • Identify patients that may benefit from sodium bicarbonate administration in the setting of cardiac arrest.
  • Describe the clinical outcomes seen in the literature that may support the use of sodium bicarbonate in cardiac arrest patients.
