#221 Interstitial Lung Disease with Erin Narewski DO

Update: 2020-06-22


Throw out your down pillows and join The Curbsiders for this lively discussion on interstitial lung disease. While the hundreds of interstitial lung disease types make this topic a bit overwhelming, breathe easy knowing that pulmonologist, Dr. Erin Narewski @erinnarewski (Temple), can boil things down to an easy to approach framework in less time than it takes to complete a few 6-minute walk tests. In this episode, we walk through the classification, relevant patient history, workup, and management of interstitial lung disease.
