Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Gastroenterology Volume 27, Issue 17: Liver Issues.
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and management of renal failure in cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, and drug-induced liver injury. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Utilize serum creatinine to monitor kidney function in patients with cirrhosis.
2. Implement measures to prevent acute renal failure and hepatorenal syndrome in patients with cirrhosis.
3. Perform the appropriate diagnostic tests to determine the cause of fatty infiltration of the liver.
4. Recognize the indications for liver biopsy in patients with fatty infiltration of the liver.
5. Describe the mechanism of drug-induced liver injury for acetaminophen and isoniazid
The original programs were presented by Michelle M. Estrella, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Assistant Fellowship Program Director, and Assistant Co-Director of the Renal Disease Epidemiology Training Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, Vinay Sundaram, MD, Assistant Director of Hepatology and Liver Transplant Program, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, and Paul J.
