This systems-based module begins with a review of relevant anatomy and physiology (that you can briefly peruse or skip over if you are familiar with this already), then goes on to a host of related pathophysiologic processes and their treatments. The procedures demonstrated in this module are all on live patients, and include the slit lamp exam, tonometry, management of otitis media and externa, epistaxis management, dental blocks, pharyngeal abscess drainage, and much more. The Work-up, Diagnosis, and Management section of this module will run through a variety of Eye, ENT, and Dental clinical scenarios on actual patients, and you will be challenged with questions along the way and helped with “pop-up cards” so you can hone your clinical practice for these emergent conditions.
