Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of General Surgery Volume 60, Issue 11: Hernia Repair/Acute Lung Injury.
The goal of this program is to improve the management of hernia and acute lung injury. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Use the Ventral Hernia Working Group grading system to assess risk for surgical site occurrences in patients with incisional hernia.
2. Select appropriate reinforcement materials for incisional hernia repair (IHR).
3. Reduce recurrence in patients who undergo IHR surgery.
4. Describe the etiology and pathogenesis of acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
5. Prevent and treat ALI and ARDS with evidence-based therapies.
The original programs were presented by Frederic E. Eckhauser, MD, Professor of Surgery and Director of Clinical Operations, John Hopkins Medicine, Baltimore, MD, and Steven R. Shackford, MD, Director of Trauma Resident Education and Quality Improvement, Scripps Mercy Medical Center, San Diego, CA.
