Sarcoidosis Case Study News

Sarcoidosis Case Study

Bernard is a 37-year-old man with sarcoidosis initially diagnosed by lung biopsy in 2009. The sarcoidosis affects his skin, lungs, lymph nodes, and liver. He was referred to the Temple Lung Center for a lung transplantation evaluation due to severe pulmonary hypertension and poor exercise capacity. He had severe dyspnea, chronic dry cough, and chest tightness, as well as palpitation and dizziness. His constitutional symptoms included weight loss and fatigue.

Pulmonary Hypertension: An update on diagnosis, treatment and risk assessment Course

Pulmonary Hypertension: An update on diagnosis, treatment and risk assessment

Pulmonary hypertension encompasses a broad scope of disease states. This program will focus on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) which begins as a vasculopathy within the small pulmonary arteries.
Clofazimine in the Treatment of Pulmonary Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) Disease Video

Clofazimine in the Treatment of Pulmonary Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) Disease

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), particularly Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), has become increasingly more prevalent in patients causing pulmonary dysfunction.
Diaphragm Dysfunction Course

Diaphragm Dysfunction

While respiratory muscle dysfunction is well-documented, it’s often an underdiagnosed cause of dyspnea, and requires a multidisciplinary approach. Sources range from focal diaphragm dysfunction to systemic neuromuscular disease, often with overlooked symptoms and delayed diagnosis. This CME activity is divided into three sections, with a focus on general approach and diagnostic modalities for patients with suspected respiratory muscle impairment, surgical interventions for unilateral diaphragm dysfunction, and evaluation and treatment of systemic neuromuscular diseases.
