Basics of Pharmacology & Ototoxicity – How, Why and When Cell Death Happens (.15 CEUs)
Recorded On: 03/04/2015
Duration: 1.5 hours
Presenter: Stephanie Nagle, AuD, PhD
Who Should Attend: Audiologist wanting to learn more about pharmacology & ototoxicity
Instructional Level: Introductory
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will beable to:
- Describe how medications get into and around the body
- Explain factors that affect medication strength in the body
- Describe how medications cause cell death in the cochlea
Description: This eAudiology Web seminar will briefly review fundamental concepts of pharmacology, including medication administration, distribution, metabolism, and cell death. Cell death in the cochlea will be examined as it relates tovarious ototoxic medications, and interactions between ototoxic and noise induced hearing loss. Clinical populations at increased risk for ototoxicity such as medically fragile children, cancer patients, the elderly, and those with various other comorbid conditions will also be discussed.
