Respiratory Pharmacology

by Pravin Shukle, MD

Respiratory pharmacology encompasses all drug groups that have an effect on the airways for the management/symptomatic control of conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These agents mainly focus their effects on the diameter, degree of inflammation, or secretion of the airway, with the goal of improving airflow.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the pharmacology of bronchodilators, including adrenergic agonists, inhaled corticosteroids, leukotriene receptor antagonists, release inhibitors, and antibodies.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system, with an emphasis on its histology and innervation by the autonomic nervous system.

The professor is very informative, and his lectures are not boring!

Lectures are good but they can be great if there will be more detail on mode of action.

I liked it because I learned some keypoints in less time .It usually would have took 3-4 days for me to get all the points but LECTURIO and PRAVIN SHUKLE made it easiler for me . But in my point of veiw there should be more detail about the mode of action and mechanism of drug . I can and will recommend lecturio to my friends and even to pharm D friends.
