Usually, respiratory tract infections can be categorized as affecting either the upper or the lower respiratory tract. Some examples of upper respiratory tract infections are acute bronchitis, the common cold, influenza, and respiratory distress syndromes. Although viruses are the most common culprit of upper respiratory tract infections, bacteria can cause them as well. Lower respiratory tract infections, such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, are often more serious. The clinical suspicion for more-dangerous pathology often relies on clinical signs and symptoms, as well as distinct radiologic findings. Prompt treatment of bacterial and fungal pathologies, as well as viral infections in immunocompromised populations, is especially important.
Well-explained, well-organized, and easily comprehensible. It covers all the important information in detail, labs, DD, assessment of severity.
I appreciate the clear information given in a way that makes sense. This lecturer seems very knowledgeable and has a great voice as well, which makes it easier to listen to :)
Good Lecturer, professional appearance, good selection of high yield topics, combined with simple but important explanations on key physiopathological issues. Great experience.
Excellent course and far detailed and in depth compared to the other topics.
