Come join NAMDRC in Sonoma, CA.

The 2019 program is entitled, “NAMDRC 2019:  Advances in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine” and features the following keynote speakers:  Bartolome Celli, MD, Professor of Medicine at Tufts and Harvard Medical School; E. Wesley Ely, MD, Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.   

The program is designed to provide meeting registrants with a broad cross section of clinical information as well as to identify on-going health policy issues that should serve as an excellent educational opportunity.  The program will include: new data on ICU liberation and the ABCDEF bundle and ICU delirium in ventilated patients; managing severe hypoxemic respiratory failure; central sleep apnea; challenges in critical care dealing with spontaneous ventilation in lung injury, ECMO and other areas; the role of long term acute care; optimizing oxygen therapy; pharmacological therapy in COPD; new approaches to the management of acute pulmonary embolism; the role of interventional pulmonary in the management of cancer; a surgical approach to OSA and sarcoidosis. This year’s Walter O’Donohue Memorial Lecture is entitled: “Changing the Natural Course of COPD.” Additionally there will be a presentation and conversation on health policy. There will also be complete updates on the Respiratory Compromise Institute;  legislative and regulatory issues; negotiating coding and document changes for pulmonologists; practice management.

Sessions will be interactive via texting answers from cell phones and speakers have been specifically instructed to take advantage of this important interactive opportunity.  The three half-day educational sessions on Thursday, Friday and Saturday begin early in the morning at 7:45 a.m. and conclude each day by 12:30 p.m. to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the Sonoma winery area!
