ATS Now Accepting Abstracts (8/15/18)

The American Thoracic Society is now accepting scientific abstracts and case reports for consideration for the ATS 2019 International Conference, May 17–22, in Dallas, Texas! Submit by Wednesday, Oct. 31, 5 p.m. ET. 


Changes at the Southwest Journal of Pulmonary and Critical Care (8/14/18)

After discussions amongst the associate editors changes are being made which are intended to emphasize and encourage submission of high quality scientific and review manuscripts. Specific changes which will take place include:
  1. Continue the case of the month but only have one case with pulmonary, critical care and imaging alternating. There would be 12 cases per year total. Each will have a more descriptive title and be a little longer than previously but 0.5 CME hours will be offered instead of 0.25 hours.
  2. Medical Image of the Week will be changed to Medical Image of the Month with monthly rather than weekly postings.
  3. The journal clubs will be closed. Previous journal clubs will be placed in an archive.

The Editors

Articles from Other Journals

Today (1/5/18) we begin a new section "Articles from Other Journals". Previously selected articles that were thought important but had received little attention were summarized under our “News” section. However, the work of publication (review, DOAJ, doi, social media, etc.) has become too arduous to do justice to these publications. Important articles that are published in journals commonly read by pulmonologists, intensivists or sleep physicians will not necessarily be reviewed but articles that are in general medicine journals or lower impact journals that might be of interest to the practicing physician are selected. As always, there will be links to the article via CrossRef and/or PubMed.

At the November 2017 Arizona Thoracic Society Meeting the membership voted to allow CME for all participants who complete the pulmonary, critical care or image. Simply answer the question at the end of each page. On the last page of the presentation is a link to obtain CME credit.
