Welcome to the Neurology AIR-Pro Module. Below we have listed our selection of the 7 highest quality blog posts related to 4 advanced level questions on neurology topics posed, curated, and approved for residency training by the AIR-Pro Series Board. The blogs relate to the following questions:

  1. Intracranial hemorrhage
  2. Diagnosis of subarachnoid hemorrhages
  3. Management of subarachnoid hemorrhages
  4. Vertigo

In this module, we have 6 AIR-Pro’s and 1 Honorable Mention. To strive for comprehensiveness, we selected from a broad spectrum of blogs identified through FOAMSearch.net and FOAMSearcher.

AIR-Pro Stamp of Approval and Honorable Mentions

In an effort to truly emphasize the highest quality posts, we have 2 subsets of recommended resources. The AIR-Pro stamp of approval will only be given to posts scoring above a strict scoring cut-off of ≥28 points (out of 35 total), based on our AIR-Pro scoring instrument, which is slightly different from our original AIR Series scoring instrument. The other subset is for “Honorable Mention” posts. These posts have been flagged by and agreed upon by AIR-Pro Board members as worthwhile, accurate, unbiased, and useful to senior residents. To decrease the repetitive nature of posts relating to these advanced concepts, we did not always include every post found that met the score of ≥28 points.
