On Point

An informative podcast about the syndromic approach to point-of-care respiratory diagnostics.

Respiratory infections can be difficult to diagnose at the point of care due to similar, overlapping symptoms. In this podcast series, Dr. Daniel Bruckner, Chair of Pediatrics at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center, discusses how the syndromic approach—simultaneously testing for several pathogens associated with a disease syndrome—can offer fast, comprehensive answers at the point of care, helping get patients on the right treatment sooner.
