Clearly explained receptor sites and treatment strategies. Absolutely love this approach for explanation and teaching. Thank you Dr. Roger
HAYAA AL LAWANSAH (Pharmacy Student)
Simple and clear. I love the way you draw the Saba and lapa and corticosteroids and lama in nice and easy charts. This teaches me the difference in treatment of COPD and asthma. Great job !
BRENT ROBBINS (Nursing Student)
The best and most simplistic explanation of these two concepts, makes it easy on a stressed out nurse that is cramming to get their RN. Let's be honest who actually studies ahead? The answer is housewives that have a hubby with a good job. That's not the majority!
I very much appreciate that a non-medically associated observer can access this information. I am now vastly more informed about my pulmonary condition than ever before. Your illustrations and explanations are surprisingly comprehensible to a layman. You have masterful teaching skills.

Quick method for evaluating if therapy is correct for COPD vs asthma, or for presumptive diagnosis based on the patient's medications! Thank you!
ENID MELENDEZ, MD
In COPD you use LAMA FIRST then add LABA if not controlled In asthma you start cortisone inhalers and then LABA if not controlled All depend in how frequently patient needed resque inhalers.
THERESA MITCHEL, NP
Very well explained asthma vs COPD treatments and why certain meds are given in a different order to treat them both. Interesting feature , asthma is treated with the same meds as COPD but with different protocol. Many Thanks for clearing things up. Theresa Mitchel CRNA
