Event Details

Providers need to have knowledge regarding evaluation and management of common and sometimes life-threatening pituitary disorders. The most common causes of hypopituitarism, defined as deficient secretion of one or more pituitary hormones, are medications, such as steroids, opioids, and sex hormones, and conditions such as sleep apnea, depression, and traumatic brain injury. Pituitary tumors can secrete excess pituitary hormones and/or cause mass-effects with compression of surrounding structures, such as the nerves that control vision and eye movement. Because pituitary disorders can be life-threatening and/or significantly impact quality of life, it is critical for providers to recognize the typical situations, signs and symptoms. Hear about the most appropriate tests to accurately assess pituitary function, and the medical and/or surgical management of these disorders.
