Course Syllabus: Asthma 101
with CEU Certificate*
Welcome to Asthma 101, a brief introduction into the medical condition known as asthma. Do you know the difference between asthma and allergies? We'll explain that in this course. Students will also learn about the usual suspects when it comes to asthma symptoms and the different types of asthma that an individual can be diagnosed with, depending on occupation, lifestyle and hypersensitivity to foods, drugs, and the environment.
In this course, students will also learn how to identify risk factors for contracting asthma as well as a brief background into genetic information that may be associated with the condition. Managing asthma is a focus of this course, and students will learn how to provide and contribute to long-term therapy and approaches to asthma treatment following a diagnosis.
In this course, we'll cover a number of commonly prescribed medications and alternative treatments for relief of asthma symptoms. Understanding of both prescription and over-the-counter medications used to treat asthma are also briefly covered in this course, as is the use of a variety of diagnostic methodologies to develop a well-rounded and effective short acting and long-term treatment plan for management of asthma symptoms.
You'll learn about some of the more common complications that those diagnosed with asthma need to watch out for as well as steps that you can take to create a cleaner, safer and healthier home environment.
Students will also learn how asthma affects children, pregnant women and the elderly in different ways and steps that each group can take to enhance greater understanding of medications, lifestyle changes, and knowledge that helps reduce the frequency and severity of asthma attacks in a variety of environments.
This course does not require any previous medical background. Any aged learner (18 or older) is welcome.
