This presentation was excellent. As a registered nurse I am always looking to gain more than just a cursory knowledge of health and disease and this lecture definitely provided just that. Not only was the lecturer engaging but also very knowledgeable. The information he provided not only covered general pathophysiology concepts but more specific and detailed clinical knowledge as well. Well worth watching particularly if you care for patients who have respiratory conditions.
