Hi Dr Zaafran.  At 5:49,  if you block PDE, shouldn't the results be an increase in cAMP since it is no longer being broken down?

Dr. Zaafran goes into clinical depth regarding respiratory drugs and their application in practice. 
Topics include: 

  • Usage of bronchodilators
  • Leukotriene inhibitors
  • Mast cell stabilizers 
  • Alpha and beta agonists 
  • Cortoicosteroids 
  • Anti-cholinergic agents

In this video we will learn about:

1. Bronchdilators - sources, mechanism of action and side effects.

2. Beta agonists, types, mechanism, and side effects.

3. Alpha beta agonists, action, and side effects.

4. Anticholinergics, mechanism of action and side effects.
