Picture of the productEffectively Treating Tobacco Dependence:We Can Move Mountain
New and effective treatments for tobacco dependence exist and respiratory therapists are in an unequaled position to deliver these treatments. Current findings have documented that these new treatments can assist both smokers willing to make a quit attempt now and those not yet ready to quit but willing to reduce their smoking.

Even with the availability of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) guidelines, up to 50% of asthma patients are not well controlled. The greatest proportion of costs and medical complications occur in the more-severe or refractory asthmatic group. This lecture will emphasize the importance of using fiberoptic bronchoscopy to phenotype refractory asthmatic patients and using this information to provide personalized individual directed therapy. Appropriate recommendations for the prevention and treatment of exacerbations will be reviewed as well as the safety of current therapeutic guidelines. Item #CT20154

Picture of the productMonitors: Improving Safety or Incr Risk?
"Monitors: Improving Safety or Increasing Risk?" Lecturer: Charles Durbin Jr., MD, FCCM. Monitoring is a routine and common component of caring for critically ill patients and patients at risk for serious, unpredictable deterioration. This presentation will review the explosion of devices developed to provide monitoring for patients in and outside the ICU. Unintended consequences of this massive deployment of technology has led to problems with false alarms, caregiver distraction, environmental noise pollution, failure to respond to real alarms, and fatigue resulting in worsening patient outcomes. Using pulse oximetry as a prototype monitor and familiar device, the important issues of monitoring in general will be investigated. A paradigm that can be used to evaluate the impact of monitoring in general will be developed. Evaluation of a monitor requires understanding the care decisions and actions driven by its use, not by the presence or absence of the device itself. Confusion with making clinical diagnoses (e.g., "hypoxia") and monitoring (e.g., identifying "falling saturations and intervening") leads to the misunderstandings about the value and use of monitoring.
