Clofazimine in the Treatment of Pulmonary Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) DiseaseNon-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), particularly Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), has become increasingly more prevalent in patients causing pulmonary dysfunction.
Diaphragm DysfunctionWhile 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.
Lung Cancer Screening and SPN in the Patient with COPDPatients with advanced Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are at increased risk of lung cancer, and should be screened with low-dose CT.
