This 5-part video presentation series pays tribute to Dr. Richard Light and describes many recent exciting and practice-changing advances in our understanding of pleural disease since the publication of Light’s Criteria. Recent research advances have allowed less-invasive approaches in diagnosis of pleural effusions, and transformed the care of malignant effusion, empyema, and pneumothorax.
The wide range of topics (listed below) in this video series will inform pulmonologists on practical applications of these exciting advances in everyday practice.
- From Light’s Criteria to State of the Art Molecular Diagnostics of Pleural Effusions (Courtney Broaddus, MD)
- From Light’s Formula on Pneumothorax Size to Conservative Management: State of the Art Pneumothorax Care (Nick Maskell, DM)
- From Light’s "Sun Never Set on Parapneumonic Effusion" to State of the Art Care of Pleural Infection (Samira Shojaee, MD, MPH)
- From Light’s Preclinical Models to State of the Art Malignant Pleural Effusion Care (Yun Chor Gary Lee, MBChB, PhD)
- State of the Art Pleural Interventions for Pulmonologists in 2022 (David J. Feller-Kopman, MD)
The presentations included in this educational module were originally presented at the 2022 ATS International Conference.
