Day 1 - Thursday, April 20, 2017

Purpose: After participating in this day-long conference, attendees will increase their didactic knowledge regarding select pulmonary and critical care topics. Clinical vignettes and the audience response system will be used to assess learners’ mastery of the educational content provided.

Objectives: At the end of this workshop, the participant should be able to:

Session I

  • Summarize the results of the most clinically important articles from the pulmonary and critical care literature in the past calendar year
  • Review novel pulmonary and critical care therapies which were approved by the FDA in the past 12 months and understand the role(s) of these agents in clinical practice
  • Explore changes in understanding regarding the use of supplemental oxygen therapy in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Session II

  • Delineate the strategies clinicians can utilize to provide adequate oxygenation to mechanically ventilated patients who are failing conventional therapies
  • Critically assess the evolving database regarding the harms of electronic cigarettes and ‘vaping’
  • Compare and contrast new hemodynamic monitoring tools available to ICU practitioners
  • Assess the beneficial and potentially harmful aspects of techniques to provide bronchoscopic lung volume reduction

Session III

  • Synthesize a prioritized plan for dealing with problematic situations that arise in the day-to-day operations of a medical intensive care unit
  • Integrate the epidemiology and critical care practices for patients with emerging infectious diseases
  • Summarize the decision making process regarding which patients are the best candidates to be lung transplant recipients

Session IV

  • Provide case studies of clinical decision making errors and delineate strategies to reduce the likelihood of making such cognitive errors in practice
  • Demonstrate how attitudes towards therapeutic steroid therapy have evolved over time and how clinicians are better able to gauge optimal use of these products in various clinical situations

Day 2 - Friday, April 21, 2017

Purpose: This year the Sleep Medicine Update has been designed to provide a select focus on the advances in sleep medicine. Major topics covered under this theme include: use of NIV and advanced PAP devices in sleep and neuromuscular disorders, potential link between OSA and chronic lung disease, PAP titration protocols and the use of trend oximetry and PAP downloads. An additional session will highlight the important articles in Sleep Medicine-Year in Review along with a discussion on approach to a patient with hypersomnia and narcolepsy, PAP alternative upper airway stimulation and oro-mandibular advancing therapies, seizures and seizure-like activity during sleep and integration of home sleep studies.

Objectives: At the end of this workshop, the participant should be able to:

Session I

  • Review the use of noninvasive ventilation and advanced PAP devices in sleep and neuromuscular disorders
  • Review the types and management options for seizures and seizure-like activities during sleep

Session II

  • Interpret the most clinically important articles from sleep medicine literature in the past year
  • Outline the PAP titration protocol for the sleep lab
  • Explain the use of trend oximetry and PAP downloads for follow-up

Session III

  • Identify the link between OSA and chronic lung disease
  • Explain the rationale for use of upper airway stimulation and treatment protocol for oro-mandibular advancing devices for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea

Session IV

  • Recognize the need and potential benefits of integrating home sleep studies as part of a sleep lab
  • Describe the approach to evaluation and management of a patient with hypersomnia and narcolepsy
