Are throat cultures obsolete? Does one method fit all throat cultures? This program will focus on the major pathogens in the upper respiratory track, how to classify patients by risk, describe newer methods for diagnosing disease and pitfalls of relying on one methodology to make a diagnosis in all patients.
At the conclusion of this program, the participants will be able to:
- Define criteria for testing patients for upper respiratory tract infections.
- Define pre-test probability and its effect on reliable test reporting.
- Use case reports to illustrate pathogens in the upper respiratory tract.
