1 California Thoracic Society Annual Conference Management of Pleural Disease and Chronic Respiratory Failure in Adults & Children January 30 31, 2015 Quail Lodge, Carmel, CA Jointly Provided by:
2 eld in an informal setting that allows for cutting-edge clinical lectures, case presentations and group discussion with faculty and colleagues, the California Thoracic Society annual conference is Hwell known and highly respected as a unique opportunity to learn from and interact with leading experts in pulmonology and critical care medicine. This year s conference will consist of two half-day clinical, case-based sessions focusing on the Management of Pleural Disease and Chronic Respiratory Failure in Adults & Children. The frequency of many pleural diseases, in particular parapneumonic effusions, pleural malignancies, and mesothelioma have increased over the past two decades. There have also been advances in the treatment of these conditions as well as new diagnostic procedures. Although the United States remains a leader in the basic and clinical sciences of pleural disease, it has fallen behind in the study and application of new approaches to treat pleural ailments. The result has been that in the US, patients with these conditions are frequently treated surgically, often unnecessarily. The second half of the program will focus on ventilatory approaches to managing outpatient chronic respiratory failure. Although pediatric pulmonologists are quite used to managing patients with diseases such as muscular dystrophy who require long term, home-based, invasive or non-invasive mechanical ventilation, many adult pulmonary physicians have little experience managing patients who require chronic ventilatory support. Program Highlights: Expert faculty sharing state of the art information, statistics and case studies Hands on airway clearance equipment & device demonstrations Small, round-table Meet the Professor discussions (Friday & Saturday) CTS/Western Respiratory Club dinner Fellow poster presentations & awards ceremony Multidisciplinary Luncheon Presentation and Discussion Wine & Cheese Welcome Reception Annual CTS Golf Tournament Many informal, collegial networking opportunities! Target Audience This conference is designed for all who provide care for patients with lung diseases, including pulmonary and critical care medicine physicians, pulmonary medicine trainees, advanced practice nurses, and respiratory therapists. Educational Objectives: After having attended the program, participants should be able to: Recognize new diagnostic criteria for the diagnosis of pleural effusions based on exudative versus transudative etiologies Identify indications for bedside chest tube placement for complicated parapneumonic pleural effusions, and the new types of tubes available Differentiate which patients with malignant pleural effusions require surgery versus non-surgical options Recognize indications for and how to perform bedside pleurodesis with talc or antibiotic slurry Discuss novel diagnostic options for mesothelioma including biomarkers and imaging modalities Describe symptom clusters & pathophysiology commonly seen in patients with chronic respiratory disease Explore the unique contributions of members of the interdisciplinary team in caring for patients with advanced lung disease Integrate aerosolized therapies more effectively in patient care Describe the ventilation options that exist for patients with long term respiratory failure Recommend appropriate choices for secretion management in patients with long term respiratory failure Discuss how to evaluate the efficacy of long term ventilator management Discuss the ventilatory strategies that are available for the management of sleep apnea and COPD (visit the CTS website at for a comprehensive list of educational objectives) Accreditation This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Scripps Health and the California Thoracic Society.

The vast majority of research and airway clearance in the pediatric population has been in the cystic fibrosis group. The standard of care for airway clearance has been considered conventional chest physiotherapy in the past, but numerous devices and medications have been developed to address the multiple aspects of the airway clearance process.
