Discuss the diagnosis and management of COPD in Spanish!

Learn to explain the diagnosis and management of COPD in Spanish. 

In this series of lessons, we focus on patient education and practice a ton of useful vocabulary and phrases for the medical setting. In the clinical dialogues, you will hear a patient present to the pulmonologist for her first visit for COPD.

  1. First, the doctor then explains the diagnosis of COPD and how it differs from asthma.
  2. They then discuss the causes of COPD and the importance of smoking cessation.
  3. The doctor explains further evaluation with pulmonary function tests and screening for lung cancer.
  4. The doctor explains oxygen therapy and pulmonary rehabilitation.
  5. Finally, we review the key vocabulary and grammatical constructs as we interpret each line of the clinical dialogue from English to Spanish.
