Signing in with the e-mail and password associated with your CHEST account, you can access the SEEK Library on your iOS and Android devices. You can also access the CHEST responsive Web app on your computer or mobile device.

Content can still be accessed in the CHEST SEEK™ and CHEST SEEK™ CME apps, however content can only be purchased in the CME version of the app. Both apps are still usable and will be retired and removed from the store on December 31, 2018.

Yes! The CHEST SEEK Library now includes an option to claim CME/MOC and there is no additional fee for this feature.

To get available credits, just answer 40 or more questions in a collection. The questions answered do not need to be together or correct since that is not a criteria for claiming.

You will receive a prompt to claim as soon as a bundle of 40 questions is answered. (Questions do not have to be answered in order; they can be random throughout the specific edition.)

Native app only (iOS and Android): You will receive a pop-up alert after the app syncs. This happens when you send the app to the background and then back to the foreground, or when you navigate to a new section in the app.

Native app only (iOS and Android): The “Claim Credits” section appears at the top of the SEEK Library screen only when the user is logged in even if there are no claimed or available credits.

When there are available credits, a green “Available” label appears in the “Claim Credits” section.

The “Claim Credits” section can be used if the pop-up prompt to claim credits was ignored (“Later” was selected).

In order to claim credits, navigate to the “Claim Credits” section, select available credits, fill in the form (required fields are indicated) and tap/click the green “Submit” buttons at the bottom. You should receive an email confirmation to the email associated with your account if the claim is confirmed by the CHEST CME integration API.

Please note: not all content subscriptions have CME/MOC available. The library content that is available for CME/MOC is equivalent to the CHEST SEEK book editions that are currently available for CME/MOC. If you wish to claim CME/MOC, please be sure to answer questions and claim credit ONLY within the library’s specified CME/MOC Collection(s). Although other library collections have the same questions as those in the CME/MOC-available editions, this is the only collection where we can track claims for CME/MOC. CME/MOC must be claimed 1 year from date of purchase.

Users will receive 10 CME credits and MOC points for every 40 CME/MOC-eligible question answered. The breakdown per library is:

Critical Care: up to 75 CME credits/MOC points
300 questions

Pulmonary: up to 75 CME credits/MOC points
300 questions

Sleep: up to 37.5 CME credits/MOC points
150 questions

A very small number of questions were considered outdated by the authors and those questions were removed from the SEEK Library. Those questions are replaced with the message “This question has been omitted due to outdated content.”
