Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 03: Skin and Soft Tissue Infections/Infections Associated with Devices.

The goal of this program is to improve the management of skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) and infections associated with prosthetic devices. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Prescribe effective antibiotic therapy for superficial focal, superficial spreading, and deep necrotizing SSTIs.
2. Differentiate between cellulitis caused by streptococci and that caused by Staphylococcus aureus.
3. Recognize systemic and local signs that suggest a necrotizing SSTI.
4. Diagnose an infection associated with a cardiac implantable electrophysiologic device or prosthetic joint.
5. Identify infections associated with a prosthetic joint that can be managed with retention of implant.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
