I enjoy your presentation style and the information. I think another lecture on asthma, talking about diagnostic workup. Specifically talking about IGE and eosinophil testing along with treatment options and requirements/qualifications for drugs like Nucala and Fasenra would be helpful. You could also touch on related asthma complications such as ABPA and EGPA. We tend to forget about these things on a daily basis and need to be reminded.... I've been in practice 25 years and am pulmonary/critical care/sleep trained. Your courses help to reinforce some things which I have learned in the past but have forgotten. It's always good to build/reinforce a strong foundation. Thank you so much!

MSN Pathophysiology and Pharmacology
I am currently enrolled in the MSN program and have to write an extensive paper specifically regarding Asthma. In my current profession as a nurse, I work in the colon-rectal - liver field and don't deal with many asthmatics or that disease process at all. So, I used these videos to refresh myself on the disease process. These two videos gave me everything I needed to feel refreshed on the disease process and gave me a good foundation to writing the beginning of my paper.
Awesome lecture which helped pull it all together. Nicely done!
