I need help with week 3 discussion question 1 its due tomorrow. Your cousin Stella, who lives 300 miles away, has smoked nearly a pack a day for about 5 years. Lately, she been complaining about shortness of breath more than usual, but she does not think she needs to see a doctor. What wouls you say to Stella that might convince her to have a doctor evaluate her symptoms? What would you say regarding the impact of smoking on her respiratory health? How is her respiratory function different from normal respiratory function? Back up the statements in your e-mail to Stella with at least two facts from the "Smoking and COPD" article listed on this week's Electronic Reserve Reading page.
Go back into your course materials -- including the article referred to here -- and read the appropriate sections that deal with this topic. Take notes.
Also, read widely in these two searches;
Then write up your assignment and re-post here if you would like someone to comment on your thoughts.
