Eosinophils and Beyond
This CME activity includes two interactive clinical cases that were reviewed by the ATS Assembly on Clinical Problems:
- A Young Woman with Respiratory Failure After a Visit to Compost Station
- Wheezing and Eosinophilia In A 24-Year-Old Man
After reviewing details related to each patient's history, physical exam, laboratory findings, and radiographic images, participants in this activity determine the most likely diagnosis, appropriate therapeutic treatments, and other considerations impacting patient medical outcomes. Participants receive immediate, detailed feedback and explanations, which are supported by well-respected medical journals and other peer-reviewed resources.
Clinicians (physicians, nurses, fellows, residents), researchers, administrators, and policymakers: anyone involved in the delivery of care and the science of patients with pulmonary disorders.
After successfully completing this module, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the clinical details surrounding each case
- Diagnose the medical conditions/disorders based on a review of the clinical details
- Prescribe appropriate therapeutic treatments, medical follow-ups, and referrals for each patient
- Explain the rationale for the diagnoses and treatments proposed by the case authors
- Independently verify the rationale via the case references
