The Hospitalist’s Role in the Perioperative Management of Hyponatremia
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality that occurs in hospitalized patients, and it is recognized as a serious in-hospital complication. It is a complex electrolyte disorder that results mainly from water imbalances and dysregulation of arginine vasopressin. Hyponatremia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality among the elderly and in patients with heart, liver, or neurologic diseases. The following educational module discusses the pathophysiology of hyponatremia, outlines methods for differentiating the cause, and provides examples of how to manage hyponatremia in a variety of situations commonly faced by hospitalists.
Appropriate Use of Targeted Oral Anticoagulants to Prevent Stroke in Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation: Virtual Patient

DOAC Reversal: Patient Management Implications for the Hospitalist
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Anticoagulant therapy plays a vital role in treating patients and preventing serious and potentially fatal complications resulting from venous thromboembolism (VTE) and atrial fibrillation. Direct acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs), such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban offer several advantages over traditional vitamin K antagonist therapy. Most notably, DOACs have a more predictable anticoagulant response, fewer drug interactions, and significantly less risk of hemorrhagic stroke when compared to warfarin. In the past, the absence of a clear, effective reversal strategy was a concern with the new oral anticoagulant agents. In order to address these concerns, therapeutic agents targeting DOAC reversal have been in development for several years. This case-based enduring module discusses the efficacy and safety of these new and emerging anticoagulation reversal agents as well as recommended strategies for DOAC reversal.
Top Pediatric Article As Presented At SHM Annual Meetings 2015 and 2016
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
  • ABP MOC Self Assessment Points
$0.00 Keeping abreast of the latest literature in pediatric hospital medicine (PHM) is an ongoing challenge. As a service to its members engaged in PHM, the SHM annual meeting includes a “Top Articles” session to engage its members in high-impact articles. Although attendees are encouraged to read the full text of these articles from the links supplied, there is no mechanism by which members can assess their knowledge gained from these articles. This online activity will allow participants to review articles from past “Top Articles” talks in detail and assess the knowledge gained from this review.
Anesthesia for Internists
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 The goal of surgical anesthesia is to both relieve and prevent pain during surgical procedures and to facilitate surgery by rendering the patient paralyzed and amnestic when appropriate. While some procedures require a small amount of sedation, others require general anesthetic sedation or regional anesthesia. This module discusses the basic forms of surgical anesthesia and contraindications to each, as well as the most commonly used anesthetic drugs, their mechanisms of actions, and side effects. An overview of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Classification Status System will be presented along with issues that will prompt an anesthesiologist to cancel a surgery on the day of surgery.
The Role of the Medical Consultant
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Medical consultation is an important clinical component for most hospitalists. Traditionally, consultants evaluated patients at the request of the referring physician (RP) and provided an assessment and recommendations. Today, hospitalists are also asked to provide both “curbside” advice and more comprehensive comanagement of medical problems. Hospitalists who are effective consultants communicate skillfully and act professionally. The following module describes the different roles that hospitalists can perform as medical consultants and provides strategies for improving communication and RP satisfaction.
Evaluation and Management of Perioperative Anemia
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Anemia is frequently seen in patients undergoing surgery, and patients with preoperative anemia are more likely to receive perioperative allogeneic blood transfusions than patients with normal hemoglobin levels. Allogeneic blood transfusions are associated with an increase in the rate of postoperative complications. Evaluation of anemia should be performed in the preoperative period and begins with taking a detailed history and physical examination. All efforts must be used to correct anemia or reduce blood loss during surgery to avoid allogeneic blood transfusion. In this module, we will discuss many scenarios commonly faced in perioperative practice.
