Gender Differences in Respiratory Care
Pulmonary conditions such as asthma, COPD, and sleep-disordered breathing affect women differently than men. In some diseases, presentation differs, such as the higher frequency of exacerbations experienced by women with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or greater prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in women. Evidence also suggests that women may be less likely to be diagnosed than men for certain lung conditions such as COPD.
The purpose of this program is to review the current understanding of the biological, behavioral, and clinical implications of female sex/gender on lung and sleep health disease, and to propose clinical approaches for achieving better health outcomes through more precise management of female patients with lung disease. The activity will inform physicians and advanced practitioners about the importance of considering sex and gender when evaluating patients with pulmonary disease, with sex being a biological construct and gender encompassing not just biology but also social and environmental factors that may influence disease presentation, diagnosis, progression and treatment.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of everyone in the healthcare facilities specifically; pulmonologists, critical care specialists, thoracic surgeons, radiologists, internal medicine and primary care physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, and nurse practitioners.
After completion of this activity participants will be able to:
