  1. 1. Has no relationships with any proprietary entity producing health care goods or services consumed by or used on patients. Disclosure of Financial Relationships; Charles Read, M.D.
  2. 2. The American College of Physician 2008 The Core of Internal Medicine A Re-Certification Preparation Course Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Charles A. Read, M.D. Director of Adult Critical Care Associate Professor of Pulmonary & CCM Georgetown University Medical Center
  3. 3. Question #1 Sepsis • 28 yo man with diffuse petechial rash diagnosed with menigococcemia • LP are compatible with bacterial meningitis • Given IV penicillin and his CXR is normal • T: 39 P: 120 RR: 20 MAP: 68 on NE • FiO2 50% and Peep 5 SaO2 = 100%
  4. 4. Question #1: Shock • In past 6 hours he has received 3 L NS • Urine Output has decreased to 0.25 ml/kg • WBC: 22,000 Plat: 40,000 Which of the following interventions is the most appropriate at this time? (A) Transfuse Platelets (B) Increase NE to achieve MAP > 75 mmHG (C) Switch from NE to DA (D) Administer 1000 ml bolus NS (E) Administer furosemide
  5. 5. Question #1 • Correct answer : D • Give 1000 ml fluid bolus – Despite the 3 l already he is oxygenating reasonably well and there is still evidence of organ hypoperfusion – Only need to keep Plat >50 K if active bleeding or procedure planned – No evidence that DA better than NE
  6. 6. Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines for management of severe sepsis and septic shock Critical Care Medicine 2004 :32(3) 858-873
  7. 7. Surviving Sepsis A: Initial Resuscitation • 1: Should begin as soon as syndrome recognized. An elevated serum lactate helps to identify . – During first 6 hours the goals should include : • CVP 8-12mm Hg ( 12-15 mmHg on vent) • MAP > 65 mm Hg • Urine output > 0.5ml/kg/hr • Central Venous or mixed venous O2 sat > 70 • Grade B
  8. 8. Surviving Sepsis A: Initial Resuscitation • Resuscitation directed for the aforementioned goals within the first 6 hours of presentation improved the 28-day mortality • Panel judged CV and mixed venous saturation to be equivalent • Target a higher CVP ( 12-15 mm Hg) in mechanically ventilated patients Rivers E et al.: Early goal-directed therapy in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock N Engl J Med 2001;345:1368-77
  9. 9. Oxygen Delivery CaO2 = (Hgb x SaO2 x 1.36) +(PaO2 x 0.003) DO2 = CaO2 x CO x 10 DO2 : Oxygen Delivery Hgb : Hemoglobin CaO2: Oxygen Carry capacity SaO2 : Oxyhemoglobin Saturation PaO2 : Arterial Oxygen Tension CO : Cardiac Output
  10. 10. Physiologic forms of shock • Hypovolemic: Dehydration/ hemmorhagic • Distributive: Sepsis, adrenal Insufficiency, neurogenic, anaphylactic, liver failure • Cardiogenic: Ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathies, negative inotropes • Obstructive: Pulmonary HTN, PE, Cardiac Tamponade, valvular, pregnancy
  11. 11. Question # 2 : Solitary Pulmonary Nodule • 65 yo man with severe alzheimer’s dementia and multiple aspiration pneumonias with 2.5 cm RLL nodule. Prior CXR from 9 yrs ago showed it to be 1.5 cm. • Current CT shows focal areas of both very high and very low attenuation within the mass.
  12. 12. Question # 2 : Solitary Pulmonary Nodule Which of the following would be the most appropriate management of the pulmonary lesion at this time. A) referral to thoracic surgery B) No further evaluation C) Positron emission tomography D) Fiberoptic bronchoscopy with TBBX E) Transthoracic needle biopsy
  13. 13. Question #2: Correct answer: B • Hamartoma is the commonest benign pulmonary neoplasm. • Can be diagnosed by CT • Presence of focal areas of fat and calcium are characteristic/pathognomonic
  14. 14. Definition of Solitary Pulmonary Nodule • Solitary Pulmonary Nodule • Solitary: Single well demarcated lesion No associated adenopathy or effusion • Pulmonary: Completely surrounded by lung parenchyma • Nodule: well demarcated lesion less than 3 cm. Lesions greater than 3 cm are masses
  15. 15. Epidemiology: Differential Diagnosis for Benign Nodules (70%) • Infectious Granuloma (80%) – Coccidiodomycosis, histoplasmosis & mycobacteria • Hamartomas (10%) • Intrapulmonary lymph nodes • Arteriovenous malformations • Parasitic: Echinococcus or Dirofilaria • Pulmonary Infarcts/ Contusions
  16. 16. Differential Diagnosis of Malignant SPN (30%) • Primary Lung ( 70-90%) – Usually Non-small cell – Small Cell accounts for only 4 % • Metastatic Lesions ( 10-30%) – Head & neck, breast, kidney, sarcomas – Distinguishing metastatic from primary is not so obvious on presentation clinically in – 44 pt with breast cancer and SPN 43% were Mets and 52% Primary Lung -Casey, Surgery 1984;96:801-804
  17. 17. Patient Characteristics Which Increase Likelihood of Malignancy • Age: In patient with age greater than 50, the likelihood of cancer approximates their age. In patients less than 35, the likelihood of cancer is low. • Exposure History – Smoking – Asbestosis • Previous History of Cancer
  18. 18. Characteristic of the Nodule That Alter the Odds: Shape Smooth and round more likely benign although 21% of malignancies have smooth margins Spiculated or Corona radiata sign are highly suspicious for cancer, 88-94% are cancer Lobulated or scalloped border are intermediate probability of cancer. 25% of benign nodules are lobulated
  19. 19. Characteristic of the Nodule That Alter the Odds • Calcifications: – Laminated or Central is typical for granuloma – Pop-corn or areas of fat and calcium are hamartomas – Eccentric or stippled does not exclude cancer
  20. 20. Characteristic of the Nodule That Alter the Odds • Size: less than 1cm increases likelihood of benignity whereas greater than 2 cm increases likelihood of malignancy (80% are malignant) • Stability of more than two years makes it likely benign • Growth makes cancer more likely. The doubling time for cancer is between 3months to 1 year. Benign lesions have doubling times of less than 30 days or greater than 450 days.
  21. 21. PET Scanning Nodules • False negatives occur with bronchoalveolar carcinoma, carcinoids and tumors less than 1 cm. • False Positive occur with active infectious and inflammatory processes • It is useful once diagnosis is made in staging as well as to stage the mediastinum preoperatively
  22. 22. Question #3: Flow-volume loop • 67 yo man with COPD with 3 months of progressive dyspnea and wheezing. • One year ago he had a CABG complicated by prolonged ICU for ARDS • PE: Persistent wheeze and JVP normal. • PFTS: as follows
  23. 23. Question #3: Flow-volume loop FEV1 2.22 L ( 64%) FVC 4.96 L (107%) FEV1/FVC 45% FEF 25-75% 2.13 l/sec (60%)
  24. 24. Question #3: Flow-volume loop Which of the following is most likely the cause of his dyspnea? A) Exacerbation of COPD B) Congestive Heart Failure C) Late Sequela of ARDS D) Tracheal Stenosis E) Constrictive Pericarditis
  25. 25. Question #3: Flow-volume loop • Correct Answer : D Tracheal Stenosis
  26. 26. Question #4: RA and the Lung 67 yo man with subtle decrease in exercise tolerance and dry cough. 2yr history of seropositive RA. His joint disease is well controlled since the addition 3 months ago of MTX. 12.5mg q week to prednisone 5mg qd. Smokes 2ppd but no exposure history.
  27. 27. Question #4: RA and the Lung • PE afebrile with joint deformities • Subcutaneous nodules on extensor surfaces • No adenopathy. No JVD or edema • Bibasilar inspiratory crackles CXR: Subtle bilateral reticular infiltrates
  28. 28. Question #4: RA and the Lung PFTs demonstrate : FEV1 78% predicted FVC 75% predicted FEV1/FVC 86% TLC 70% predicted RV 72% predicted DLCO 66% predicted
  29. 29. Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in the management of the patient? A) Cardiopulmonary exercise testing B) Begin a tumor necrosis factor- α antagonist C) Initiate antibiotic therapy D) Stop methotrexate therapy E) Surgical Lung Biopsy Question 4: RA and Lung disease
  30. 30. Question 4: RA and Lung disease Correct Answer: D • Associations: – Pleural Effusions: Exudate Low pH low Glucose – Pulmonary Rheumatoid Nodules & Caplan Nodules – Capillaritis – Pulmonary Hypertension – Pulmonary Fibrosis – Bronchiolitis Obliterans – Drug Induced disease – Upper Airway Obstruction
  31. 31. Question 4: RA and Lung disease • When patient with RA develops ILD, infection (particularly when immunosupressed), Drug- induced lung disease abd complication of RA is in the differential • No specific test for MTX induced disease but temporal relationship noted. • CPEX will define impact of the ILD but not help define it • No other evidence of active RA to begin alternative tx.
  32. 32. Question # 5: Steroids in Sepsis • 29 yo with active SLE hospitalized with pneumonia. Had been on Prednisone 30 mg/d but weaned off 6 months ago Febrile WBC 6,000 with left shift Hgb 10 and Plat: 20,000 Mild renal insufficiency She is hypotensive with BP: 70/40
  33. 33. In addition to fluids and vasopressors which of the following is the most appropriate next step in this patient’s management? A) Perform an ACTH stim test and initiate steroid therapy if abnormal B) Initiate therapy with fludroocortisone C) Administer methylprednisolone, 2g IV D) Administer IV Dexamethasone, and perform and ACTH stim test Question #5: steroids in Sepsis
  34. 34. Question #5: Steroids in Sepsis Correct Answer: D Administer Dexamethasone and do ACTH stim test Empiric steroids are indicated but hydrocortisone and Methylprednisolone interferes with cortisol measurement
  35. 35. Surviving Sepsis H. Steroids Rationale: One Multi-centered RCT in patients with severe septic shock showed a significant shock reversal and reduction in mortality in relative adrenal insufficiency (post stim cortisol < 9). Annane D et al: Effect of treatment with low doses of hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone on mortality in patients with septic shock. JAMA 2002;288:862-71
  36. 36. Surviving Sepsis H. Steroids Rational: Two randomized prospective trials and meta-analyses concluded that high-dose steroids for severe sepsis or septic shock are ineffective or harmful. Bone RC et al: A Controlled clinical trial of high dose methylprednisolone in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock. N Engl J Med 1987; 317:653-58 Cronin L et al: Corticosteroid treatment for sepsis: A critical appraisal and meta- analysis of the literature. Crit Care Med 1995;23:1430-39 The VA systemic Sepsis Cooperative Study Group: Effect on high-dose glucocorticoid therapy on mortality in patients with clinical signs of sepsis. N Engl J Med 1987; 317: 659-65
  37. 37. Question # 6: Cough 47 yo man 6 months of cough, episodic, worse at night and when exposed to cold air. Brought on with deep breathing and laughter. No PND or GERD symptoms PE, CXR and Spirometry normal. No benefit from acid suppression, nasal steroids or anithistamines He has a family history of allergies
  38. 38. Question # 6: Cough Which of the following would likely provide the diagnosis of this patient’s chronic cough? a) 24-hour pH-probe b) CT scan of sinuses c) Bronchoscopy d) Trial of inhaled albuterol e) CT of the chest
  39. 39. Question # 6: Cough Irwin RS, Madison JM: The Persistent troublesome cough Am J Resp Crit Care Med 2002; 165:1469-74 • Correct answer is D • Patient has cough variant asthma or post-infectious reactive airway disease (PIRAD) Differential Diagnosis Diagnostic study Therapy Sinusistis/PND Upper airway cough syndrome (UACS) CT sinuses Decongestants/anti- inflamatory Reactive Airways PFT/ methacholine Bronchodilators GERD 24 Hour Ph PPI ACE 0 D/c Med
  40. 40.

  56. 56. Question # 8: Pleural Effusion What is the most likely diagnosis? A) Transudative pleural effusion B) Malignant pleural effusion C) Parapneumonic effusion D) Rheumatoid pleural effusion E) Pleural Effusion associated with esophageal rupture
  57. 57. Question #8:Pleural Effusions Correct Answer: B Light’s criteria: Exudates 1) Pleural Fluid protein/Serum protein >0.5 2) Pleural Fluid LDH/Serum LDH >0.6 3) Absolute pleural fluid LDH > 2/3 upper limit of normal (> 200) Only need one to make an exudate This effusion is a exudative with lymphocytic predominance
  58. 58. Question # 8: Pleural Effusion • Most common cause of transudates in decreasing order are CHF, hepatohydrothorax, nephrotic syndrome, other low albumin states, atelectasis • CHF usually bilateral (R>L) orthopnea, S3 and evidence of pulmonary edema on CXR • Nephrotic syndrome has small bilateral effusions and abnormal UA • Low albumin states have bilateral effusions albumin less than 1.8
  59. 59. Pleural effusions: Results of tests • Low pH and Low Glucose – Most common : malignancy & infections – Also seen in rheumatoid arthritis – Are prognostic factors for malignancy – Can be used to decide on need to drain a parapneumonic effusion • Lymphocytic Predominant Exudates: Malignancy and Tb. – Malignancy: cytology only positive around 40% – Tb: The presence of greater than 5% mesothelial cells rules this diagnosis out.
  60. 60. Question # 8: Pleural Effusion • Effusion is a lymphocytic exudative effusion • If it were a massive parapneumonic it would be neutrophilic and patient would be more toxic. • Rheumatoid effusions usually seen in setting of other manifestations of RA • Rupture esophagous would expect low pH 4.0 history of wretching vomitting and are usually not massive
  61. 61. Question # 9: Sleep 45 yo man alternates day, evening and night shifts at work. Drink 6-8 cups of coffee a day to stay awake.

  67. 67. Question 10: Correct answer B Pulmonary Embolism • Helical Ct without contrast won’t detect PE • Contrast echo is good for shunt however patient hypoxemia corrects with supplemental O2 and shunt would not cause chest pain • Ultrasound good for small effusions but these would not have such a profound effect • Clear CXR does not support diagnosis of pneumonia
  68. 68. Question 10: Pulmonary embolism correct answer: E • Suspicion is that of Pulmonary Embolism – Modified Wells Criteria • Clinical Signs of DVT 3.0 points • HR > 100 1.5 points • Immobilization 1.5 points • Previous DVT/PE 1.5 points • Hemoptysis 1.0 points • Cancer 1.0 points • PE more likely than any other diagnosis 3.0 points < 2.0 = low 2-6 = moderate >6 is high suspicion
  69. 69. Pulmonary Embolism • Work up: If suspicion is low to moderate a negative d-Dimer helps rule out DX. Positive d- Dimer not helpful • If suspicion if moderate to high and sign of DVT then Venous Dopplers • If Suspicion is High: CT scan with PE protocol • If Dye Allergy: Dopplers and V/Q scan • Unstable patient: Dopplers and ECHO to look for RV strain
  70. 70. Question # 10: Pulmonary embolism : Correct answer: B • High Probability VQ: 85% will have PE – High Prob & High clinical suspicion: 95% will have PE • Low probability VQ: 13 % will have PE – Low probability with high clinical suspicion: 43% have PE • Normal V/Q: only 5% have PE and these have no clinical sequela left untreated
