Cardiopulmonary case challenge: Abnormal breathing patterns and adventitious lung sounds can be found in animals with cardiac or pulmonary disease, and cough, tachypnea, and respiratory distress are common signs of disease associated with either condition. Even the presence of a murmur does not always signify a cardiac etiology of disease, and radiographic changes of cardiomegaly or pulmonary infiltrates can obscure the underlying cause of the clinical presentation. Determining the primary disease process relies on a good history and physical examination and will be supported by radiographic findings and additional tests. The speakers have been asked to present some of their most challenging cases to demonstrate how the experts work through these confusing cases.

Warm, friendly faces and cool ocean breezes greet you at Sheraton Maui Resort, the first resort in Hawaii to grace the shores of Ka`anapali. Miles away from the mainland, you’ll never feel more at home on our 23 oceanfront acres.
Named as one of Travel and Leisure Magazine’s top 25 Hotels, the beautiful Sheraton Maui Resort offers contemporary Hawaiian furnished rooms, lanais with breathtaking Pacific views, meandering lagoon-style pool, outstanding snorkeling, excellent dining options and terrific golf just steps away.
Here time is as relaxed as the island locals. Spend your days in the 142-yard freshwater swimming lagoon and whirlpool, on the three night-lit tennis courts, or at the salon and day spa. Find hours of enjoyment on the beachfront Teralani Catamaran or on a snorkeling adventure at Black Rock, Maui’s premier snorkeling destination.
As evening falls, share island-inspired menus with friends or family at our open-air restaurants. Live entertainment fills the night air at the poolside bars, including a cliff diving ceremony at sundown. Or gather with beachgoers as everyone stands still beneath the wide open sky to witness the majestic sunset on Ka`anapali Beach.
Distinct Hawaiian furnishings and little extras give our guest rooms and suites an intimate, comfortable air. This feeling flows onto your private lanai, where you can take in the view. If business brings you to paradise, we’ll help you connect with colleagues and plan a memorable event in a great space, from our elegant meeting rooms to spectacular oceanfront lawns.
