Understanding the Stellate Ganglion Block with John Vogel DO

6/18/2024
Stellate Ganglion Block for PTSD Individuals may develop PTSD (also called Post Traumatic Stress Injury) from a single or repeated traumatic events. When trauma causes a persistent injury pattern to the nervous system, it can become locked into a permanent protective mode, even in the absence of on-going threat. This can cause a variety of symptoms including: What is a stellate ganglion block? The sympathetic nervous system (the "fight or flight" part of the nervous system) is organized in front of the spinal column. Along the spine there are nerve bundles referred to as ganglion. Several ganglia are located in the neck, including one in the lower neck called the stellate ganglion. These nerves are special for their connection to brain regions which store and control emotional memories. Injection of local anesthetic around these nerve bundles interrupts the nervous system's constant exaggerated response to emotional trauma. You can think of it like rebooting your computer. How is a stellate ganglion block done? For decades, the procedure was done by feeling for a particular bone in the front of the spine, pushing the carotid artery toward the middle with one hand, and inserting a needle until it contacted bone prior to injection. Later, the procedure was improved by the use of x-ray to verify the correct level of the spine. However, use of x-ray does not allow visualization of important nerves and arteries in the neck. Ultrasound imaging and needle guidance is the gold standard for accuracy and safety, and the only technique Dr. Vogel has used over the last 7 years. The procedure is 1-2 minimally painful injections done in an outpatient setting that takes about 15 minutes. Dr. John Vogel, DO Dr. John Vogel is an independent pain specialist providing personalized treatment for a wide spectrum of pain conditions. He completed his pain fellowship at Brooke Army Medical Center and his residency at Emory University. Dr. Vogel is board-certified in pain medicine, headache medicine and family medicine. Dr. Vogel served in the Army Medical Department for 39 years. Upon retirement, he established a private direct pay practice in Marietta, GA. He provides the expertise, time and education needed for comprehensive individualized care. He offers the most recent advances in pain management, tailored to each person's concerns and goals. Dr. Vogel collaborates with other medical professionals to achieve multidisciplinary care. Dr. Vogel sees patients by medical professional referral or self-referral.

Gaps in management of vasomotor symptoms: findings from a national need assessment. And our whys on the career trajectory.

6/5/2024
Context: This national needs assessment study explores the knowledge, attitude, beliefs, and practices (KABP) gaps related to vasomotor symptoms (VMS) associated with menopause among primary care and OB/GYN clinicians. VMS significantly impacts healthcare costs, workplace productivity, and patient psychosocial health, but a notable disconnect exists between healthcare providers and patients, with provider reticence and knowledge gaps playing a contributing role. Objectives: This study aims to identify and propose optimal educational strategies to address these barriers, with attention to health disparities affecting women of color. Methods: Methods employed include a multimodal approach of literature review, expert opinion, qualitative interviews, surveys, focus groups, and case studies, ensuring diverse clinician input. Data collection involved in-depth clinician interviews, a nationally disseminated clinician survey, and focus groups. Results: Results indicate a critical deficiency in healthcare providers' understanding and management of VMS, especially among OB/GYN residents, with 75 % showing limited knowledge. The study also highlights the disproportionate impact of knowledge gaps on women of color, emphasizing the need for a culturally informed approach in medical training and practice. There's a notable discrepancy between clinicians' current and desired abilities in managing VMS, indicating a need for ongoing professional development. Significant variability in approaches to diagnosing and treating VMS, as well as substantial knowledge gaps about treatment options, underscore the need for evidence-based protocols. Conclusions: Although VMS are a normal aspect of aging, they can significantly disrupt quality of life for many women, necessitating intervention. Beyond the immediate discomfort, VMS can impact quality of life and trigger insomnia and mood disturbances. This study exposes both new and previously recognized gaps in healthcare providers' knowledge and management skills concerning VMS treatment options, particularly regarding hormonal and nonhormonal therapies. Furthermore, our findings highlight the need for a deeper understanding of how VMS uniquely impacts women of diverse backgrounds. Research, including the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN), suggests that the experience and severity of VMS may be influenced by socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, body mass index (BMI), and smoking status. However, the complex interplay of these factors and their relative contributions remain unclear. Further investigation is crucial to facilitate equitable access to effective treatment for all women. To bridge these gaps, improved education starting as early as residency is essential. This education should address common misconceptions about VMS and its management. Healthcare providers must enhance their competence in discussing the broad spectrum of VMS impacts and employ effective communication strategies to ensure that patients are well-informed about their symptoms and available treatment options. And more on why we started on menopause/sexual health practices.

A Contemporary View of Menopausal Hormone Therapy with Dr. Jim Simon MD

5/24/2024
Enthusiasm for the use of hormones to ameliorate symptoms of perimenopause and menopause has waxed and waned over the years. Both treatment for symptoms and training of women's health care practitioners in the management of menopause have sharply declined since publication of the Women's Health Initiative initial results in 2002. Findings from that trial, which treated a population of older, asymptomatic patients, have been extrapolated over the past 21 years to all estrogen products, all menopausal women, and all delivery mechanisms. Our patients deserve a more nuanced, individualized approach. Conjugated equine estrogens and medroxyprogesterone acetate are no longer the predominant medications or medications of choice available for management of menopausal symptoms. All hormones are not equivalent any more than all antiseizure medications or all antihypertensives are equivalent; they have different pharmacodynamics, duration of action, and affinity for receptors, among other things, all of which translate to different risks and benefits. Consideration of treatment with the right formulation, at the right dose and time, and for the right patient will allow us to recommend safe, effective, and appropriate treatment for people with menopausal symptoms. Dr. James A. Simon is a board-certified ob/gyn, reproductive endocrinologist, and AASECT-Certified Sexuality Counsellor. He serves as Clinical Professor at George Washington University and has a private practice, IntimMedicine Specialists® in Washington, D.C. Dr. Simon has received numerous awards including: “Top Washington Physicians,” “America’s Top Obstetricians and Gynecologists,” “Super Doctors of Washington DC-Baltimore-Northern Virginia,” and “The Best Doctors in America.” He is the only physician to serve as President of both The Menopause Society and the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health. Nicknamed “The Menopause Whisperer,” Dr. Simon is an established researcher and author--completing more than 400 research trials, and more than 800 published articles, abstracts, chapters, and the paperback book: Restore Yourself: A Woman’s Guide to Reviving Her Sexual Desire and Passion for Life.

A Discussion of Testosterone Use During Midlife

4/22/2024
Testosterone therapy (TTh) has been shown to improve libido in women with sexual dysfunction, but its utilization has been limited due to concern for cardiovascular events and past studies reporting highly variable results. the goal was to assess the association of TTh in women with major adverse cardiac events (MACEs), including heart attack, stroke, or death, using a large database. The results contribute to safety data on TTh, a therapy for sexual dysfunction in women. And they found a decreased risk of MACE among women with TTh as compared with matched controls and a similar risk of MACE in postmenopausal women while demonstrating a similar or significantly lower risk of breast cancer on age-based subanalysis.

Desire Discrepancy in Long Term Relationships

4/15/2024
Low sexual desire in women partnered with men is typically presumed to be a problem—one that exists in women and encourages a research agenda on causation and treatment targeting women. In this paper, we present a distinct way forward for research on low sexual desire in women partnered with men that attends to a more structural explanation: heteronormativity. A heteronormative worldview assumes that relationships and structures are heterosexual, gender (usually conflated with sex) is binary and complementary, and gender roles fit within narrow bounds including nurturant labor for women. We propose the heteronormativity theory of low sexual desire in women partnered with men, arguing that heteronormative gender inequities are contributing factors. We outline four hypotheses and their predictions related to: inequitable divisions of household labor, blurring of partner and mother roles, objectification of women, and gender norms surrounding sexual initiation. We discuss some mechanisms—social, physiological, and otherwise—for the heteronormativity theory, especially related to stress, objectification, and nurturance. We close by noting some limitations of our paper and the ways that the heteronormativity theory of low sexual desire in women partnered with men provides a rigorous, generative, and empirical way forward....Article: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8382213/ Andrea Martin, DNP, CRNP, WHNP Andrea is a board-certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, which enables her to offer reproductive and sexual health care to all genders.

Discussion : Weight loss response to semaglutide in postmenopausal women with and without hormone therapy use

3/25/2024
We took some time to discuss this recent article which is very timely and it compared weight loss response and changes in cardiometabolic risk markers in postmenopausal women using semaglutide with and without menopause hormone therapy (HT) use. In postmenopausal women with overweight or obesity treated with semaglutide, HT use was associated with an improved weight loss response. It was a small study size of 60 women but nonetheless good data. Larger studies should be conducted to confirm these results.

The Discussion of the Lancet Article on "The Over-medicalization of Menopause"

3/11/2024
Menopause deserves care and attention! Just because it is a normal process of aging doesn’t mean that women should be forced to grin and bear the multitude of symptoms that are associated with menopause not to mention the significant health consequences that are associated with the hormone decline of aging. We are in total agreement that we need to have a balance conversation around menopause and that we should very much reframe the conversation but this does not mean taking us back in time and pulling all the progress that we’ve made over the last 20 years since the WHI (Women's Health Initiative) trial was released, this means pressing forward with a conversation that empowers women to take full control of their menopause journey regardless of their treatment decisions.

We created everything in this collective with women in mind. The logo has changed to include 4 small hexagons which is the estradiol molecule- we also included 2 Queen Bees We have also updated and rebranded our mission, vision, and initiatives. We have continued to hear in our practices that women are still not being seen or heard in regards to their healthcare and in particular their menopause and midlife journey. We knew it was time to advocate for more women and make a larger impact than we can in our own private practices. As we navigated through the healthcare landscape we needed something that could empower more women that see their healthcare provider than we can care for…hence The HIVE (Health in a Virtual environment) was born!
