FAQ for Case Studies in Pulmonary Medicine for the Primary Care Clinician

This talk will focus on several pulmonary topics that often arise in the primary care setting. I have chosen these topics based on scenarios that are common and confusing. For instance, I will review my approach to patients who come to clinic with a diagnosis of asthma for whom the clinical suspicion is low including spirometry and methacholine challenge interpretation. Next, we will review the evidence for using long term oxygen therapy in respiratory patients including the various oxygen delivery systems. I will also cover the approach to chronic cough when the typical therapies have failed to improve symptoms. I will finish with the current evidence and approach to lung cancer screening.
