Glendale, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 17: Toxicity/Sleep Apnea/Thyroid.

The goals of this program are to improve screening for and diagnosis of hydroxychloroquine toxicity, ocular complications of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and thyroid eye disease (TED). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Select an appropriate protocol to screen patients for the ocular manifestations of hydroxychloroquine toxicity.

2. Identify patients at higher risk for toxic maculopathy and modify their screening regimen accordingly.

3. Recognize the risk factors and cardinal symptoms of OSA.

4. Diagnose ocular conditions secondary to OSA.

5. Perform clinical examinations to diagnose and determine the phase of TED.    

The original programs were presented by Susanna Park, MD, PhD, Professor of Ophthalmology, Vitreoretinal Service, University of California, Davis, Eye Center, Sacramento. S. Khizer Khaderi, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology; Director of Neuro-ophthalmology, University of California, Davis, Health System, Sacramento.
