Delve into the diagnosis and management of GERD and dyspepsia with Dr. Amy Oxentenko (@AmyOxentenkoMD), Gastroenterologist and the Internal Medicine Residency Program Director, Associate Chair for the Department of Internal Medicine, and Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Our discussion features a review of the standard presentations of GERD and dyspepsia, alarm symptoms and who needs referral for endoscopy or other specialized testing (pH, impedance testing, screening for Barrett’s esophagus). Additionally, we comprehensively cover proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy including: choice of agent, dose, frequency, how taper, how to counsel patients about risk, what labs should be monitored and the use of adjuvant therapies like H2 blockers, antacids and sucralfate.

The Curbsiders Podcast
ACP has teamed up with The Curbsiders to conduct and broadcast a series of interviews with physicians on a variety of internal medicine-related topics in a "curbside" setting. The Curbsiders Podcast features three board-certified Internists as they interview the experts to provide listeners with clinical pearls and practice-changing knowledge. Join The Curbsiders as they serve up some triple-distilled knowledge (and maybe a little humor) for your continuing medical education, available exclusively to ACP members by completing the CME/MOC quiz.
