The Adult Acute Care, Continuing Care/Rehabilitation, Diagnostics, Education, and Home Care Sections have just published the Fall issues of their Bulletins.

Here are your direct links to these informative publications:

  • Adult Acute Care: Section Chair Mike Hewitt encourages everyone to take advantage of the upcoming AARC International Respiratory Congress in his Notes from the Chair column, and we have a great article on managing the difficult ARDS patient that includes the pros and cons of various modalities.
  • Continuing Care/Rehabilitation: Section Chair Debbie Koehl updates us on recent section activities in her Notes column and also shares her recent experience with a little known Joint Commission requirement affecting pulmonary rehab programs. We have some great resources to share as well, plus two abstracts from the medical literature that can support and inform PR practice.
  • Diagnostics: Editor Rick Weaver challenges section members to get more involved in the Bulletin in his Notes column, and two great clinical articles inform members about pulmonary function testing here and in the United Kingdom, and the value of pleural fluid pH versus glucose analysis.
  • Education: With an article on Second Life and the role it can play in allied health education, and another on the value of online preceptor training, this issue is full of cutting-edge information for educators. Editor Bob Fluck and Section Chair Lynda T. Goodfellow raise some interesting issues in their “Notes” columns as well, and Jim Allen’s latest cartoon is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  
  • Home Care: This issue takes a “glass half full” look at the future of home care, with articles on the effect of health care reform, the opportunity for growth created by COPD/OSA overlap, new paradigms to explore, and equipment variability and how it figures into the equation. 

The remaining five Specialty Section Bulletins—Long Term Care, Management, Neonatal-Pediatrics, Sleep, and Surface & Air Transport—will publish their Fall editions next month.
