Not US guidelines
By Quynh T. on 01. May 2017 for URTI, Bronchitis and Pneumonia

Very helpful and clear lecture. However, it's not according to US guidelines which make it harder to utilize.

 
TB lectures need improvement
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Influenza A and Tuberculosis

The TB lectures can be improved, In particular the approach to dx of a pt with suspected TB and in particular when you would consider tissue biopsy. Also the approach to dx of latent tb isn't clear. E,g performing a chest x-ray in high risk patient populations followed by mantoux testing. No mention of what size reaction is considered positive in different population ie immunosuppressed healthcare workers and the general population. The lecture discusses the treatment of active tb but no discussion of treating latent TB. No mention of when you would treat contacts of the index case. Finally serious side effects of TB treatment were not adequately covered. Isoniazid (need for B6 to decrease risk of peripheral neuropathy and megaloblastic anaemia) rifampicin and liver toxicity and drug interactions, ethambutol and occular toxicities and need for monitoring of visual fields and pyrazinamide (hepatoxicity).

 
Very impressive
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for URTI, Bronchitis and Pneumonia

This lecture series was very comprehensive and good level of detail. Obviously the Abx recommendations will vary according to where you work. To further improve the lectures in the future please include a small section on tropical respiratory infections.
