Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Emergency Medicine Volume 30, Issue 17: Pulmonary Disease.

The goal of this program is to improve the management of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia in the emergency department. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Evaluate and compare various agents for the treatment of asthma.
2. Safely initiate intubation and ventilation in the refractory asthma patient.
3. Utilize appropriate tests to distinguish COPD from other diseases.
4. Recognize the indications for antibiotics in treating acute exacerbations of COPD.
5. Determine classification of risk in the patient with pneumonia.    

The original programs were presented by James K. Takayesu, MD, MS, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Harvard Medical School, and Associate Residency Director, Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. Sandra M. Schneider, MD, Professor and Chair Emeritus, Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Rochester, NY.
