The Mycobacterial Consult Line at National Jewish Health helps practitioners manage drug-resistant tuberculosis and other refractory mycobacterial and respiratory infections

The Consult Line is designed to

  • Facilitate provider communication with National Jewish Health

  • Expedite comprehensive review of each case

  • Quickly return useful information and specific recommendations to the requesting physician

Our Consultation Coordinator has extensive experience with mycobacterial infections and will assist you by:

  • Answering your call to obtain medical case information and specific questions you have about your patient.

  • Synthesizing this information with laboratory data and presenting it to the National Jewish Health Mycobacteriology Service Team for discussion and review.

  • Relaying observations, comments and specific recommendations back to the requesting physician.

  • Helping you submit specimens for identification and susceptibility testing to National Jewish Health's Mycobacteriology Laboratory

  • Coordinating referral for a second opinion at our outpatient clinic or extended day treatment program, or inpatient management.

The calling physician will receive recommendations on:

  • Appropriate drug therapy

  • Duration of therapy

  • Appropriateness/possibility of surgical intervention

  • Recommendations on monitoring for drug toxicity

  • Information on and assistance with referral to National Jewish Health

The unique value to calling physicians and their patients is a review of their mycobacterial case by recognized leaders in the management of these difficult diseases.
