Asthma Made Easy - Understand Causes, Diagnosis, & Treatment

Understand asthma with this clear medical lecture by Dr. Roger Seheult. Includes discussion and illustrations on asthma pathophysiology, signs and symptoms of asthma, diagnosis, triggers (GERD, postnasal drip, down feathers, etc.), flow volume loops, Samter's Triad. Video 2 covers a further discussion on the diagnosis of asthma, methacholine challenge test, and stepwise approach for the treatment of asthma (rescue inhaler / beta agonists, corticosteroids, montelukast etc.).

We're glad you're here!

You may have noticed that the videos in this medical course are also available at our MedCram YouTube channel... but stick around because all new MedCram medical videos will be available first here at MedCram.com (and publicly posted to YouTube later... if at all).

Also, a growing amount of MedCram content (medical videos, quizzes, medical review notes, audio lectures) is only available here at MedCram.com - and not available on YouTube.

We've got you covered!

MedCram medical videos allow you to cut down on study time and maximize retention and understanding by focusing in on what is most important. Dr. Seheult's medical illustrations, charts, memory aids, and quizzes will make learning and reviewing medical topics a breeze. We think (and certainly hope) you'll find Asthma Explained Clearly very informative, easy to follow, and fun.

JOHN KOSZUTA, MD

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!
