TOPIC 1: Acute Management of Childhood Asthma

Upon completion of this session, using published practice guidelines and Cochrane EBM sources, the participant should be able to: EBM, GL, COMP

  1. Determine the appropriate use of albuterol by metered-dose inhaler, intermittent nebulizer, and continuous nebulizer for children with moderate and severe asthma exacerbations.
  2. Appropriately apply the evidence regarding levalbuterol as compared with albuterol in the treatment of childhood asthma.
  3. Employ recent data and recommendations for the use of steroids, magnesium sulfate, terbutaline, and ipratropium bromide in the treatment of acute asthma exacerbations.
  4. Recognize indications for inpatient hospitalization in children with acute asthma exacerbations.

TOPIC 2: Pulmonary Nodule: Evaluation and Follow-Up

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, GL, COMP

  1. Evaluate pulmonary nodules using a variety of radiographic techniques.
  2. Assess pulmonary nodules for features that reliably exclude malignancy.
  3. Use evidence-based guidelines regarding appropriate intervals for nodule follow up.

TOPIC 3: Radiology of the Pleura: Effusion, Pneumothorax and More

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Detect pleural effusion on a chest radiograph in its various manifestations.
  2. Analyze a CT scan of the chest for findings that differentiate benign from malignant pleural effusion.
  3. Distinguish pneumothorax from other findings that may simulate it on a chest radiograph.
