Course Information

ACTIVITY SUMMARY:
The goal of this conference is to share best practices in a multi-disciplinary environment with a variety of teaching methods to review the pathophysiology, diagnosis, radiographic imaging, strategies for behavior change, and treatment of COPD to improve patient outcomes. Offered concurrently is a 2 day ultrasound course featuring didactic lectures and hands-on sessions. The hands-on component will include scanning healthy live models and the use of ultrasound simulators to demonstrate both normal anatomy as well as pathology. The topics will include basic ultrasound techniques and application which has recently become a standard of care in managing patients with critical illness.

TARGET AUDIENCE:
Physicians and Allied Healthcare Professionals practicing Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine and Anesthesia

Educational Objectives*

Describe COPD pathophysiology and pharmacology based on current evidence based guidelines.

Recognize appropriate strategies for behavior change in COPD.

Recognize and avoid common pitfalls that prevent accurate performance and interpretation of spirometric testing, exercise testing, appropriately tailor oxygen therapy, and effective use of new inhaler devices.

Identify COPD exacerbations and understand their impact on prognosis and care.

Understand the differences between COPD, ILD and COPD/ILD overlap with regard to clinical presentation and management.

Identify the role of radiologic procedures such as CXR and Chest CT in the diagnosis and management of COPD.

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of basic ultrasound physical principles and instrumentation relative to imaging and artifacts.

Demonstrate pro ciency in recognizing ultrasound anatomy of various organs in a healthy individual as well as recognizing the ultrasound characteristics of various common pathologic conditions.

Demonstrate pro ciency in ultrasound use and critical thinking skills in acute situations such as diagnosis of shock, pneumothorax, abdominal trauma and deep venous thrombosis.

Demonstrate pro ciency in ultrasound- guided procedures such as central line placement, thoracentesis, paracentesis and lumbar puncture.
