The Adult Acute Care, Continuing Care/Rehabilitation, Diagnostics, Education, and Home Care Sections have just published the Spring issues of their Bulletins. Here are your direct links to these informative publications:

Adult Acute Care: Section Chair Keith Lamb updates us on section activities in his Notes column, and we have a great article on ECMO in H1N1-associated acute respiratory distress syndrome from a grad student in RT.

Continuing Care/Rehabilitation: Our new Bulletin editor, Arianna Villa, shares informative articles on “post-hospital syndrome” and the updated GOLD Guidelines, and we also have an interesting piece about Older Americans Month, which is coming up in May.

Diagnostics: Diagnostics has a new editor as well, and Katrina Hynes introduces herself in her first Notes column and offers an interesting look at the 24-hour laryngopharyngeal reflux pH study. We round the issue out with an article on alpha-1 screening in the PFT lab.

Education: Editor Robert Fluck kicks things off with a look back at the legacy left by the late Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, and from there we have a great article on how one RT program at the community college level has gone above and beyond when it comes to getting their students involved in research. Our next author offers another look at mentoring the next generation of leaders and our third shares some free resources for teaching auscultation. Jim Allen’s latest cartoon is sure to brighten everyone’s day as well.

Home Care: 30-day readmissions and how they relate to home care, changes to the oxygen LCD, and spirometry ABCs take center stage in this issue.

The remaining five Specialty Section Bulletins—Long Term Care, Management, Neonatal-Pediatrics, Sleep, and Surface & Air Transport—will publish their Spring editions next month.
