Module Goal

This module will introduce you to the various upper respiratory and pulmonary disorders, many of which are common in the general population.  Because many of these conditions are chronic and can impact other tissues and organs, it is important that you understand their pathophysiology and treatment. The module will introduce you to upper respiratory and pulmonary disorders, discuss shortness of breath and other clinical features in the context of specific disorders, incorporate pertinent laboratory tests and ancillary studies into clinical problem solving, and provide a solid background and understanding of pharmacologic agents and non-pharmacologic interventions used to treat upper respiratory and pulmonary disorders.
