Collapse Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency and the Respiratory Therapist: Test, Teach, and "Treat"

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency is a genetic disorder that can result in serious lung disease. This not-so-rare genetic disease is greatly underdiagnosed and is the most common known genetic risk factor for emphysema. Up to 3% of all people diagnosed with COPD may have undetected Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. This presentation will provide the respiratory therapist with an appreciation of the disease, its prevalence, and its role in COPD as well as strategies for the respiratory therapist to assist in detection, education, and treatment of this population.

    Collapse Childhood Asthma, Attendance and Action Plans

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, asthma is one of the leading causes of school absenteeism in the United States. The respiratory therapist has a unique role in not only the diagnosis and treatment of asthma but also in helping patients and families develop good asthma self-management skills to prevent the negative impact of asthma, including school absenteeism. This presentation will discuss asthma and its impact on student absenteeism, the role of the AAP as a surveillance tool in school districts and the importance of students with asthma having an AAP on record.
