The main purpose of the lungs and heart are to provide oxygenated blood to the body. Oxygen is required by all tissues for cellular respiration and therefore essential for energy production under efficient conditions.

well covered talk! The talk may have been recorded before the development of new target agents for CF but this may be beyond the scope of step 2
Another great talk but again like asthma management there are gaps in the information provided. For example classification of COPD, which in turn influences the type of treatment is not outline clearly. No mention of vaccinations (flue and pneumo) and criteria for oxygen therapy. No mention of when you would not perform a lung function reduction (FEV <20%). It wasn't clear that only interventions that affect COPD outcomes long-term are smoking cessation, oxygen in hypoxemic patients, and lung volume reduction surgery or lung transplantation in appropriately selected patients
Enjoyable and informative talk. However, I think it would have been beneficial to discuss the classification and asthma in more details and features that fall into each category from intermittent, mild persistent, moderate persistent etc.. Also in the acute exacerbation section talk about risk factors and criteria for hospital admission could have been discussed.
Thanks you so much. This lecture made COPD easy to understand.
