PSA is excited to announce that CCM Academy is now open for enrollment. This 22-hour course is designed for medical professionals who would like to rapidly expand their knowledge base in the underlying pathophysiology, diagnostic evaluation and management of critically ill patients in the ICU setting. You may preview the course curriculum here.
Congratulations to Dr. Brian Bohner, one of Pulmonary and Sleep Academy’s outstanding faculty members, on receiving this honor! Dr. Bohner’s award-winning discussion of “Understanding Mechanisms of Central Sleep Apnea”, from Session V of Sleep Academy, can be viewed on the American Thoracic Society’s website.
“Sleep Academy was a great, well-organized overall review of sleep medicine. The portion on central sleep apnea was extremely helpful, especially the explanation of plant gain versus controller gain which helped deepen my understanding of this concept. The last module on medications was also especially helpful. Teasing out the different classes of medications helped me to better organize and remember the different classes of drugs available for sedation and wakefulness. I look forward to reviewing these slides again. A must for newcomers in this field. On completion of Sleep Academy, I enrolled in Pulmonary Academy and am looking forward to that course!”
