Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 12: Topics in Hepatology and Hematology.
The goal of this program is to improve management of the patient with an abnormal liver function test, as well as iron deficiency and iron overload syndromes. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Evaluate and diagnose the underlying disease in a patient with abnormal levels of total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, or transaminases.
2. Identify patients who require referral for further evaluation and treatment.
3. Prescribe appropriate medical therapy for a patient diagnosed with primary biliary cirrhosis.
4. Use oral and parenteral iron replacement in the management of iron deficiency anemia.
5. Reduce the serum ferritin level in a patient with a hereditary iron overload syndrome.
The original programs were presented by Richard B. Weinberg, MD, Professor, Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, presented on What to Do When Your Patient’s Liver Tests Are Abnormal, and John W. Adamson, MD, Professor of Clinical Medicine, Associate Director, Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program, University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, La Jolla, presented on Too Little Iron, Too Much Iron.
