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.
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.
Pulmonary Risk Management in the Perioperative Setting
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 As a consultant, hospitalists commonly risk stratify and offer risk reduction strategies for patients undergoing surgery. Effective perioperative pulmonary risk consultation requires hospitalists to identify patient- and procedure-related predictors for developing postoperative pulmonary complications and to propose strategies to reduce the risk. The following module will examine these topics and provide evidence-based risk reduction strategies. In addition, the role of routine preoperative spirometry and chest radiograph will be discussed.
Perioperative Medication Management
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Although general internists and subspecialists are familiar with prescribing and managing medications in typical outpatient and inpatient venues, the perioperative period represents a challenging and often unfamiliar setting. This module will outline the principles, available evidence, and expert opinion to be considered when making perioperative management recommendations for some of the most commonly prescribed medications.
