Fab Friday Lecture - Lungs in Health and When Things Go Wrong by Dr. David Mouw
Friday, October 31, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
You don’t hear much about lungs; come and find out how amazing they are. Learn about: 1) normal lung function, and 2) what can go wrong. What is it about lung design that leads to all of these: sleep apnea, aspiration pneumonia, Heimlich maneuvers, and feeding tubes; is there anything you can do? Why are the lungs so hard to keep clean, and pneumonia so common? Why does heart disease make your lungs gurgle? David Mouw, PhD (human physiology), MD (family practice) with added Qualification in Geriatrics, has given 9 previous HES lectures, and regularly uses the audience response system. This lecture, part of the Health Education Series, is free and open to the public.
