CHEST SEEK

CHEST SEEK™ stimulates and challenges your clinical thought processes related to recall, interpretation, and problem-solving skills. Developed from the content blueprints for the board examinations, SEEK features cases and multiple-choice questions and answers with rationales to test your knowledge. The case-based questions include histories, lab results, and images, and provide education on current diagnostic and treatment strategies. SEEK is a valuable study tool for anyone preparing for certification and recertification examinations sponsored by the medical specialty board.

Goals

  • Provide a self-assessment program to reinforce training and experience, disseminate important new knowledge in the field, and identify areas of strengths and weaknesses within specific areas of disease and/or procedural knowledge.
  • Assist clinicians and physicians-in-training with preparation for certification and recertification examinations sponsored by the medical specialty board.

No, these are two separate products.

To the purchasers of the CHEST SEEK Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine: 1st Edition book:

There is an error in the explanation to the answer of question 2 (pages 39-40 in the Response Key, Rationale, and References section). The red text is the corrected information.

View the correct information

To the purchasers of the CHEST SEEK Sleep Medicine: 4th Edition book: 

There is an error in the explanation to question 81. In the third paragraph, it reads:

When RLS/WED occurs in the absence of a known risk or predisposing factor, it is deemed to be secondary. In cases where there is no discernible predisposing factor, RLS/WED is sometimes referred to as primary.

The bolded phrase above should be the following: 

When RLS/WED occurs in the presence of a known risk or predisposing factor, it is deemed to be secondary. In cases where there is no discernible predisposing factor, RLS/WED is sometimes referred to as primary.

There is an error in the explanation to the answer of question 129. The last sentence in the first paragraph reads:

In a randomized crossover study by Spiegal et al (examining measures of leptin, ghrelin, hunger, and appetite) comparing two nights of 4 h in bed vs two nights of 10 h in bed, leptin levels were decreased by 18%, ghrelin levels decreased by 28%, hunger increased 23%, and appetite for nutrients with high carbohydrate content was increased by >30% when sleep was restricted (choice D is correct).

The bolded phrase above should be the following: "...ghrelin levels increased by 28%, hunger increased 23%, and appetite for nutrients with high carbohydrate content was increased by >30% when sleep was restricted [choice D is correct]).

The rationale answer explanation is correct for question 143, but the correct answer callout on top should read, "B: Schedule a formal PSG to assess the presence of central apneas." 

To the purchasers of the CHEST SEEK Critical Care Medicine: 26th Edition book: 

There is an error in the explanation to question 14. In the fourth paragraph, it reads:

Treatment is similar to that of acute CHF from other causes, including oxygen, noninvasive ventilation, diuretics, nitrates, and inotropic agents. The management of chronic CHF due to PPCM is also similar to nonpregnancy-related CHF, with particular care to some contraindicated medications such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor blockers while still pregnant. Bromocriptine blocks procalcitonin and has been used in the management of PPCM.

The bolded phrase should be the following:

Treatment is similar to that of acute CHF from other causes, including oxygen, noninvasive ventilation, diuretics, nitrates, and inotropic agents. The management of chronic CHF due to PPCM is also similar to nonpregnancy-related CHF, with particular care to some contraindicated medications such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor blockers while still pregnant. Bromocriptine blocks prolactin and has been used in the management of PPCM.
