Congratulations to Emory University for pulling out a victory during Tuesday night’s CHEST Challenge! Emory University’s team of Matthew Schimmel, MD; Mohleen Kang, MD; Haider Ali, MD, took home the top prize of $5,000.
“Women need to believe in themselves and their skills” was one of many take-home points in the Tuesday session Challenges for Women in Medicine. Roozehra Khan, DO, FCCP, adressed imposter syndrome while other panelists discussed breaking the glass ceiling and mentorship.
Thank you to everyone for making CHEST 2018 a success! Catch up or re-live the meeting through these photos. We’ll see you next year at CHEST 2019 in New Orleans.
CHEST will head to the Big Easy for CHEST 2019, which will take place October 19–23. New Orleans’ distinct Spanish Creole architecture, Cajun food, jazz, eccentric nightlife, and its festive spirit are a reflection of its melting pot of cultures. Here are a few things you can look forward to in a year.
“As the provider, you need to document in the medical record what you talk about with your patient,” said Nancy A. Collop, MD, FCCP. “You have to protect yourself and your patient and their family.” Read what else Dr. Collop had to say in a Meet the Professor session.
Tubes, glues, patches, and values are just a few of the tools David M. Ferraro, MD, FCCP, and a multidisciplinary panel will review to treat persistent air leak (PAL) from pneumothorax during a case-based session.
CHEST® was recently awarded a two-year impact factor of 7.652, the highest in its history, but the Journal’s Editor in Chief Richard Irwin, MD, Master FCCP, believes the quality and influence of the journal is in the eyes of the beholder. Dr. Irwin, who will be handing over the Editor in Chief position to Peter Mazzone, MD, MPH, FCCP, in 2019, shares more.
They won’t be throwing jabs, upper cuts, or hooks in this session, but there will be a battle of opinions during The Smackdown in San Antonio: Debating Heavyweight Topics in the 2018 CHEST Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines on Wednesday. Nichole T. Tanner, MD, MSCR, shares more.
This year’s Awake Intubation With Bronchoscopic Guidance session will feature high-fidelity simulation opportunities to help attendees get a feel of what it’s like to perform this useful airway management procedure in real-life scenarios of patients with difficult airways.
Tanmay Panchabhai, MD, FCCP, and Debasis Sahoo, MD, FCCP, weigh in on their session Multidisciplinary Consensus in Diagnostic Dilemmas in ILD: A Case-Based Approach on Wednesday.
“Primarily, our session will focus on presenting data of different medications—what their cost is, how clinically effective they are, and then explain what we are hoping to achieve with these medications over time, and how the survival can be improved by these medications,” says Shahid Sheikh, MD, associate professor of clinical pediatrics at Ohio State University College of Medicine.
