AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) November 25, 2014
Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Rockpointe are pleased to announce a new online Continuing Medical Education (CME) activity titled, “Hyponatremia: Detection and Management in the Hospital Setting.”
Hyponatremia is a common electrolyte disorder associated with significant morbidity and mortality. This condition often goes undiagnosed and untreated due to patients being asymptomatic or presents as a complication of a serious medical illness that requires dedicated medical attention. Hospital-based clinicians who commonly encounter patients with hyponatremia are strongly encouraged to participate in this online CME activity at: http://www.rockpointe.com/Einstein/Montefiore/Hyponatremia
Dr. Ladan Golestaneh, Associate Professor of Medicine (Adult Nephrology) from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center will present this program. After attending this online activity participating physicians should be able to demonstrate the ability to: identify hospitalized patients with hyponatremia that require improvement in serum sodium levels; evaluate when and how various therapeutic options should be utilized in the treatment of hyponatremia; analyze the pathophysiology of hyponatremia development in the workup and treatment of the disorder; and recognize the limitations of some diagnostic tests in the setting of renal failure and proceed with the appropriate management of hyponatremia in the setting of renal failure. Physicians may earn up to 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.

About Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University
Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers one of the nation’s largest programs for medical education. During the 2014-2015 academic year, the College of Medicine is home to 742 M.D. students, 212 Ph.D. students, 102 students in the combined M.D./Ph.D. program, and 292 postdoctoral research fellows at our Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies. More than 8,000 Einstein alumni are among the nation’s foremost clinicians, biomedical scientists, and medical educators.
When the medical school opened its doors in 1955, the New York Times was already noting that “the new medical school’s distinguished and talented faculty assured the institution of a place in the ranks of the great medical schools in the world.” This prophecy has been more than fulfilled in the ensuing years.
Among its pioneering educational initiatives, Einstein was one of the first major medical schools to integrate bedside experience with learning, bringing first-year students into contact with patients and linking classroom study to case experience. Einstein also led the way in the development of bioethics as an accepted academic discipline in medical school curricula, was the first private medical school in New York City to establish an academic department of family medicine, and was the first to create a residency program in internal medicine with an emphasis on women’s health.
