Hello and welcome. Today we're discussing conditions affecting the respiratory system. I'm Dr. Green.
And I'm Dr. Flemings. Nearly everyone experiences an upper or lower respiratory tract infection at some point in their life. The common cold and other infections are among the most common reasons people in the United States seek medical care.
In this program, you can learn about infections of the upper and lower respiratory tracts, as well as several other respiratory conditions, including:
- Allergic rhinitis
- Chronic sinusitis
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD
- Lung cancer, and
- Many others
Our specialists -- Dr. Mansfield, Dr. Patel, and nurse practitioner Captain Miller -- provide their expertise throughout the program. In addition, you can hear the stories of several patients who share their personal experiences with respiratory conditions.
Keep in mind, there may be terms that you're not familiar with, so please visit the glossary at any time, and be sure to check out the other resources included in this program. Thank you for joining us.
