Airway Diseases

by Jeremy Brown, PhD, MRCP(UK), MBBS

Airway diseases broadly encompass pathology that exists from the upper airway to the terminal bronchioles of the lungs. In this course, you will learn about obstructive lung disease, including asthma and COPD, as well as bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, and the causes of hemoptysis. Chronic obstructive lung disease is a lung disease characterized by lung airflow limitation that can result from exposure to harmful substances. It is a common cause of death worldwide. Prompt evaluation and management can help to curb the high morbidity and mortality linked to this condition. Asthma is extremely common and often fairly undertreated, leading to poor quality of life in patients severely affected. Other causes of lung disease, although rarer, may also be secondary to dangerous pathology, including hemoptysis secondary to tuberculosis, a pulmonary embolism, or severe connective tissue disorder. Having a broad differential and being able to correlate physical exam findings to history and a full clinical picture could prove life-saving to many patients.

I am enjoying studying here, the contents are well arranged plus the videos and the questions with well explained answers Maybe about adding up the dosages of drugs plus the page should be staying longer on without internet
