8th July 2022

<p>Welcome to another Hot Topics podcast from NB Medical with Dr Neal Tucker leading you through the latest news and research in general practice.&nbsp; Of course, we must touch on the demise of Boris Johnson and how he might still be in power if he'd just learned a thing or two from general practice. </p><p>Meanwhile, in research, we look at prescribing trends in anxiety disorders, whether bariatric surgery can reduce cancer risk in overweight people, and two papers on covid vaccination against Omicron, first on efficacy in kids, second on the relative merits of vaccination vs natural immunity,&nbsp; plus could a new vaccine for RSV be just around the corner?</p><p>And with hot weather finally coming to the UK,&nbsp; time to remind ourselves about the symptoms and signs of <a href="https://www.nbmedical.com/kiss/kiss-heat-related-illness" target="_blank" rel="noopener">heat-related illness in our KISS from NB</a>. </p><p><b>References</b>:</p><p><a href="https://bjgp.org/content/72/720/e511" target="_blank" rel="noopener">BJGP Trends in anxiety medications</a> </p><p><a href="https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2793220" target="_blank" rel="noopener">JAMA Bariatric surgery and cancer risk</a></p><p><a href="https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2205011?query=featured_home" target="_blank" rel="noopener">NEJM Covid vaccine in kids</a></p><p><a href="https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2116154" target="_blank" rel="noopener">NEJM Covid vaccination vs natural protection vs hybrid immunity</a></p><p><a href="https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2203965" target="_blank" rel="noopener">NEJM RSV vaccine study</a></p><p></p>

S3 E6 - Stating the obvious, treatment time after VTE and CVA; best meds for obesity

14th January 2022

<p>Happy New Year! Welcome to a new episode of the Hot Topics podcast with Neal Tucker.</p><p>In this episode, we have a look at research that states the obvious (non-covid infections went down during lockdowns) and why we feel the need to formalise it. We also look at new research suggesting a shorter duration of anticoagulation may be appropriate after provoked VTE in younger people. We have new research showing the benefits of thrombectomy after stroke for well beyond a 6-hour window. We also have research showing which drug option may be most effective to aid weight loss. </p><p>No songs today - too busy writing the Spring Hot Topics course - but a smattering of Dad jokes. Don't say I didn't warn you...</p><p>References</p><p><a href="https://www.bmj.com/content/376/bmj-2021-067519" target="_blank" rel="noopener">BMJ Infection rates during covid measures</p><p></a><a href="https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2787908" target="_blank" rel="noopener">JAMA Duration of anticoagulation after provoked VTE in &lt;21yo</p><p></a><a href="https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(21)01341-6/fulltext" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Lancet Successful time limits for thrombectomy post-CVA</p><p></a><a href="https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(21)01640-8/fulltext" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Lancet Pharmacotherapy for Obesity network meta-analysis</p><p></a><a href="https://www.gphorizon.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">GP Horizon</a></p>
