Lecture Title: What Pulmonologists Need to Know About the 8th Edition of the Lung Cancer Staging System
A 65-year-old man presents for evaluation of a right lower lobe nodule identified during evaluation for persistent cough. He otherwise feels well and has no other complaints. PMHx: 25 pack years smoking, discontinued 25 years ago. PFT: moderate obstruction to airflow; DLCO 65% predicted. Chest CT: 3.1 cm spiculated, solid right lower lobe mass without any other parenchymal findings and no mediastinal/hilar adenopathy; PET-CT: +FDG uptake in RLL mass (SUV 5.1) without any other sites of uptake; EBUS: RLL mass--poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, TTF+, EGFR/ALK -, PDL1-; stations R11, 7, R4, R2 nodes sampled with abundant lymphocytes, no tumor. Brain MRI: solitary, enhancing 10 mm lesion in the right parietal lobe with surrounding edema, suggestive of metastasis. Brain biopsy: adenocarcinoma, TTF+. What is the correct clinical stage for this patient? *

Lecture Title: Renal Replacement Therapy for AKI in the ICU: When & How?
A 57-year-old man develops oliguric acute kidney injury in the setting of septic shock from pneumonia. He is intubated, sedated and mechanically ventilated. He is initially dependent upon vasopressor support with norepinephrine and vasopressin to maintain a mean arterial pressure >60 mmHg but has now been weaned off of vasopressin and has a blood pressure of 100/50 mm Hg on 0.02 mcg/kg/min of norepinephrine. His intake and output is positive by approximately 7.5 liters since admission. Renal replacement therapy is to be initiated because of worsening azotemia, mild hyperkalemia and moderate metabolic aciodosis.Which modality of renal replacement therapy would be most likely to to allow him to be discharged from the hospital independent of chronic dialysis dependence? *
