  11. CONTENTS: 1] Definitions of asthma as one of the chronic obstruction airway diseases. 2] Types and pathogenesis of extrinsic (immune) asthma and extrinsic (non-immune) asthma. 3] Clinical presentation and pathological changes seen in the bronchial tree in cases of asthma. 4] Complications of asthma: superimposed infection, chronic bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema. 5] Definition and manifestations of status asthmaticus.

  12. LECTURE TWO: : Chronic obstructive airway diseases: chronic bronchitis, emphysema and bronchiectasis. OBJECTIVES: At the end of this lecture, the students should be able to: A] Understand that this group of disorders is characterized by an increase in resistance to airflow, owing to partial or complete obstruction at any level of the bronchial/bronchiolar. B] Know that the major obstructive disorders are chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and bronchiectasis. C] Is aware that the symptom common to all these disorders is "dyspnea" (difficulty in breathing) but each have their own clinical and anatomical characteristics. D] Chronic bronchitis and emphysema almost always coexists.

  13. CONTENTS: 1] Chronic bronchitis: definition, clinical presentation, role of cigarette smoking and air pollution, pathological changes and complications with special emphasis on corpulmonale. 2] Emphysema: definition and clinical characteristics. Types of emphysema including centrilobular emphysema, panacinar emphysema (deficiency of alpha one antitrypsin), paraseptal and irregular emphysema. 3] Complications of emphysema with special emphasis on interstitial emphysema and pneumothorax. 4] Bronchiectasis: definition, predisposing factors, kartagener's syndrome (primary ciliary dyskinesia) and pathological features of bronchiectasis.

  14. LECTURE THREE: Restrictive lung diseases. OBJECTIVES: At the end of this lecture, the student should be able to: A] Understand the structure and constituents of the lung interstitium as well as the restrictive changes which occur in these diseases and lead to the development of symptoms of progressive breathlessness and cough in affected patients.
