  • The Immune System Revealed
    • Explore the inner workings of the immune system, like you’ve never heard it before!
  • Inflammation: The Center of Attention
    • How the inflammatory response works and what you can do to assess and treat complications
  • Inflammation Out of Control
    • Sepsis, allergies, organ rejection, and anaphylactic reactions: the symptoms and how to treat the complications
  • Common Immune Disorders
    • Treat and Prevent Autoimmune disease, HIV, and antibiotic resistant bacteria

If you could master only one concept during your career, it should be the inflammatory response.

  • Do you care for patients with:
  • Cardiac disorders?
  • Respiratory disorders?
  • Gastrointestinal disorders?
  • Neurological disorders?
  • Infection, cancer, or immunosuppression?

Inflammation is responsible for many of the disease processes that we treat; it is the primary response for healing and protecting the body from injury. In order to provide extraordinary care for your patients, you must understand the inflammatory response.

Although the inflammatory response is incredibly complex, the results of inflammation can be broken down into three major events: 1) vasodilation, 2) capillary permeability, and 3) clotting. The results of these events are what cause the problems we associate with many different conditions such as septic shock, ARDS, atherosclerosis, and many others. But, the lack of a response can be just as devastating – exposing the body to a myriad of deadly infections.

Learn how to manage patients with inflammation, and those whose inflammatory response is inhibited, by mastering the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of inflammatory and immune responses.

If you’ve had trouble with these concepts in the past, then this is the program for you! You will get the detail you need – explained at a level that you will fully understand.


OUTLINE

OBJECTIVES

  • Identify mechanisms of the first line of immune defense.
  • List several types of leukocytes and their functions.
  • Explain the function of immunological memory.
  • Describe the three main components of the inflammatory response.
  • Summarize inflammatory response to major illness.
