Past participants consistently report that this program has inspired and improved their clinical practice and outcomes. Here are a few comments from recent attendees:
"This course has induced many changes—specifically, my approach to ICU patients requiring mechanical ventilation; sedation; patients affected by sepsis; utilization of diagnostic ultrasound; and interventional pulmonology practices."
"I have updated my treatment of pneumonia/COPD, my consideration of patients for lung transplantation evaluation, how I treat thrombotic events, inhaler management, overnight oximetry testing, and GERD."
"Consequent to new knowledge gained in the course, I have made several changes, particularly in the management of sepsis and ARDS."
"The consistent effort of presenters in this course to bring the most current valid information to bear upon real time practice was outstanding."
"I have updated patient work-ups including labs and interviews; increased scrutiny of CT scan; updated ultrasound techniques; am encouraging local development of cardiopulmonary exercise testing."
"All of the presenters in this program were really exceptional—engaging, sometimes funny, informed."
"I have integrated several takeaway points into my practice regarding sepsis, anticoagulation, consideration of GERD in recurrent pulmonary disease, and palliative care."
"I now look more for reflux, use tPA in some cases of PE, and am trying to obtain an EKOS catheter for my institution."
"I enjoyed every course presentation and the tailoring of content to the practicing pulmonary/CC physician."
