Perioperative Evaluation and Treatment of Adrenal Insufficiency
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 As the use of steroids (usually prednisone) to treat various medical illnesses has expanded, so has the concern for hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression and subsequent adrenal insufficiency (AI). Despite the fact that most clinicians clearly recognize the potential for AI, many find the sometimes-subtle presentation challenging. Furthermore, clinicians often struggle with assessing the likelihood of perioperative AI risk and with preventing it. The following module will address the perioperative management of both patients with known AI and those at risk for HPA axis suppression.
Perioperative Cardiac Risk Management
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Perioperative cardiac complications are the most widely feared medical issues for the anesthesiologist, surgeon, and medical consultant as they approach a patient in the perioperative period. Only recently have management strategies been addressed in high-quality studies. The following module explains the roles of medical and interventional treatments in lowering perioperative cardiac event rates. This module also discusses the typical presentation of coronary syndromes postoperatively and the management of antiplatelet and cardiac medications.
Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital: Focus on the Noncritically Ill Patient
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Hospitalized patients with diabetes require specific medical management to minimize the risk of hyperglycemia. This module is part of a 2-part series that evaluates the current evidence regarding glycemic control and medications.
Perioperative Cardiac Risk Assessment
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Perioperative cardiac complications are the most widely feared medical issues for the anesthesiologist, surgeon, and medical consultant as they approach a patient with the option of surgery. To assess for the preoperative cardiac risk, hospitalists should follow a step-wise algorithm. The following module reviews the risk assessment process and enables the hospitalist to order appropriate preoperative testing.
Shock
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$0.00 SERIES SUMMARYMany hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability. This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.TARGET AUDIENCEAny hospitalist physician or advanced practice provider who manages patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). 
Perioperative Bridging of Anticoagulant Therapy
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Anticoagulant medications are commonly prescribed to patients in the United States for a number of medical problems. Interruptions in anticoagulation can result in severe adverse outcomes, including permanent disability and death, from arterial and venous thromboembolism. These medications, however, can also be associated with serious perioperative bleeding events. In fact, both bleeding and thromboembolic risks are amplified in the periprocedural period. This module addresses the risk of thromboembolism associated with periprocedural interruption of anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation, a mechanical heart valve, or a history of venous thromboembolism.
Evaluation and Management of Perioperative Cirrhosis
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Patients with liver disease who undergo surgery, whether elective or emergent, are at increased risk for complications. In patients with cirrhosis, perioperative morbidity and mortality vary depending on the type of surgery. An accurate assessment of the presence and severity of acute or chronic liver disease is necessary to plan for perioperative management. Although most patients should continue liver-directed therapies, adjustments in medications may be necessary for certain liver diseases. This module outlines the risk associated with different types of surgery and identifies the elements of the preoperative evaluation for patients with cirrhosis. The influences on morbidity and mortality and formulation of pre- and postoperative care plans are reviewed as well.
