PETAL Network: 2020 Progress Report

In 2014, NHLBI launched the PETAL Network (Prevention and Early Treatment of Acute Lung Injury) high-impact clinical trials in ARDS through collaboration between critical care and emergency medicine. The Network’s first two trials were completed in 2018. The ROSE trial results were highlighted in our symposium at CHEST 2019, and the VIOLET trial results will be highlighted in this session. In addition...

Tele-healthcare in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine – Current and Future Practice

Tele-medicine is rapidly being integrated into routine practice. Workforce limitations, geographic challenges, and advances in technology have resulted in widespread application and acceptance of Tele-ICU provision of critical care - what have we learned about its benefits and downsides after two decades of this practice? Tele-medicine in the ambulatory setting is headed in the same direction. Technology and public policy are converging to open the arena of...

Advanced Pulmonary Sarcoidosis: Closing the Gap to Better Management

Advanced pulmonary sarcoidosis (APS) occurs in approximately 5% of sarcoidosis patients, and it accounts for most of the mortality, morbidity, and healthcare use. New and emerging advances can aid clinicians in managing the complications and pathophysiologic processes of APS. These include the use of inflammatory markers, new insights into sarcoidosis-associated pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension, infectious complications, and lung transplantation. APS would be presented with a focus on gaps in...

Simulation: Acute Respiratory Failure in COVID-19 Patient

This session will focus on the understanding and management of acute respiratory failure in the patient with COVID-19-related acute respiratory failure. Prerecorded clinical simulation scenarios will be presented and stopped for live polling of the audience for next steps in clinical decision-making. The faculty panel will provide clinical input along the way to augment the various approaches and options available for a live and interactive discussion. This will be followed...

Opening Session and Keynote

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Anthony Fauci will be giving the CHEST 2020 keynote address. As the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health, his insight into the COVID-19 pandemic will be invaluable.

Pleural Controversies

Primary spontaneous pneumothorax carries a high recurrence rate and 80% of individuals with PSP has HRCT evidence of emphysema-like changes. This session looks at the controversy surrounding the need to pleurodese at first presentation of PSP. Pleural infection carries with it a high mortality rate if there is no timely intervention. This session looks at...

Case-based Learning: Difficult PAP Downloads

In this session we will briefly review the key components of PAP downloads and then delve into clinical cases where utilizing the PAP download can help to treat the patient. The learners in the room will actively work through the cases with the faculty using the audience response system. We will cover both pediatric and adult patients, basic...

Pardon the Interruption 2020: Controversies in Critical Care

Modeled after the ESPN show of the same name, these sessions, which continue a 2-year tradition, involve having three faculty experts debate in rapid fire fashion between 10 and 15 topics during the hour-long session. All panelists are provided with the list of topics in advance, so they are prepared to deliver the maximum amount of relevant information as concisely as possible. Note that this request is for THREE hour-long sessions, one on each of three consecutive days (two playoff rounds, one final round). Three debaters per...

Diagnostic Errors: Seeing the Blindspot of Healthcare Delivery

Diagnostic (dx) errors are common and responsible for many preventable adverse events in hospitalized patients and a major source of morbidity and mortality in ICU. Critical care providers, often working on a multidisciplinary team, are well-positioned to enhance the dx process at the individual, team, unit, and system levels. Training and assessments in dx reasoning is often excluded from forma; medical curriculum. We propose a joint critical...

Understanding the Opioid Epidemic: Implications for our daily practice

Opioids use has increased dramatically in recent decades, and is now considered a health care crisis. The goal of this session is to help pulmonary providers appreciate the scope of the opioid epidemic and its specific relevance to our patients. Experts will give an overview of the opioid epidemic from a public health standpoint and highlight implications for providers in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. Specific topics to...

Reaching and Sampling a Peripheral Pulmonary Lesion. When Is a Technology Ready for Clinical Use?

With ongoing advances in technology, reaching and sampling peripheral pulmonary nodules has become possible in multiple different modalities. Pulmonologists find themselves at the forefront of an ever-innovative market to promise to successfully reach these elusive lesions. Within a short time span, numerous novel technologies have reached the market, while rigorous studies and the evidence behind their ultimate utility and yield is lagging behind. In this sesion, learn about...
