Many hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability.  This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an important complication following cardiac and noncardiac surgery. Up to 18% of hospitalized patients develop AKI, and those who are critically ill have an even higher risk. Comparatively, the incidence of AKI in the perioperative period is 18-47%(1). Patients with even modest increases in their serum creatinine have increases in their mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and hospital costs. Perioperative AKI is associated with an increased risk of sepsis, anemia, coagulopathy, and mechanical ventilation. Notably, mortality is higher in patients with perioperative AKI even after complete renal recovery(1). Perioperative AKI correlates with type of surgical procedure, patient characteristics, volume status, hemodynamics, and exposure to nephrotoxins. Presurgical risk stratification and early risk mitigation is extremely important to avoid injury and need for renal replacement therapy (RRT). The following module defines perioperative AKI, identifies specific risk factors and tools for risk stratification, provides an overview of the workup of perioperative AKI, and evaluates various renal protective strategies that can be implemented during this high-risk period.

This activity was made possible in part by an educational grant from Novartis. This is the second session in a four-part series, SHM Clinical Rapid Updates: Heart Failure. This session covers heart failure care during hospitalization, and through transition of care. Specific subtopics addressed in this session include: 1. Preventing recurrent hospitalizations based on PARADIGM-HFii trial 2. Tools and strategies for optimal transitions from inpatient to outpatient 3. Potential roles for telemonitoring and cardio-MEMs This panel was moderated by Dr. Jagriti Chadha, MD, FHM. Our panelists included Dr. Tresa McNeal, MD, FACP, SFHM, Interim Chair for the Department of Medicine at BSW Medical Center in Temple, Texas, and Dr. Dustin Smith, MD, SFHM, Associate Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.

This activity was made possible in part by an educational grant from Novartis. The four-part series, SHM Clinical Rapid Updates: Heart Failure, opens with this session outlining guideline-directed medical therapy in heart failure patients, focusing on the impact of care optimization provided by hospitalists. Specific subtopics addressed include: - the importance of rapid decongestion - the importance of initiation of GDMT - inpatient initiate and titration of ARNI This session is moderated by Joseph Sweigart, MD, FHM, SFHM. Our panelists include Ebrahim Barkoudah, MD, FACP, MPH, FHM, SFHM and Nurcan Ilksoy, MD, FACP, FHM.
