In this session, the speaker will discuss some challenging diagnostic cases that primary care practitioners may face in their practice. These cases will feature interpretation of laboratory and imaging studies as well as encounters with rare diseases and conditions. You will learn which aspects of the history and physical exam are most useful to establish certain diagnoses, increase your awareness of certain uncommon but “can’t miss” diagnoses, and become familiar with clinical decision aids that improve diagnostic accuracy for certain common diagnoses.

Suspecting COPD: What If the Spirometry Result Is Normal? - Frankly Speaking EP 295

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is typically diagnosed based on spirometry findings, but what if that finding isn’t what you expect? Spirometry measurements are compared to standard values for age, sex, and race. The use of race-based equations has been questioned in several clinical situations, and researchers are now raising similar concerns about the use of race-based equations in spirometry, which may lead to health inequities. Join us for an important discussion on how to overcome these potential disparities in diagnosing COPD.
