Primary Care Dermatology Module Nomenclature of Skin Lesions
The intent of this module is to help the learner describe and identify the major types of skin lesions. This process of description of lesions is a necessary step toward the identification of diseases of the skin or diseases that may have cutaneous manifestations. The accurate description and identification of skin lesions are processes that can be learned and can provide the practitioner with the valuable skill of being able to approach cutaneous problems systematically rather than having to rely on guesswork and gestalt.
Acute Otitis Media
Acute Otitis Media (AOM) occurs with the rapid onset of signs and symptoms of inflammation in the middle ear. For pediatric clinical purposes, it is generally a bacterial infection that involves the middle ear. The tympanic membrane becomes inflamed and opaque. Blood vessels to the area dilate. Fluid accumulates in the middle ear space. AOM is usually associated with infection by viruses or bacteria, although in some cases, an infecting pathogen cannot be identified.
The goal of this module is to improve the learning of the pediatric ear exam and the diagnosis and management of Acute Otitis Media (AOM) in different educational settings. The content of the module is to provide pertinent learner groups as well as to faculty. Content will relate to the stated objectives for each group.
