Summary

In this concise practical guide the Editor and Authors combine a symptoms- and problem-based approach with systematic coverage of lung disease - to help students and young professionals to understand respiratory medicine in the round.

The first section of the book is devoted to the underlying principles and clinical skills needed - science and disease process, symptoms and signs, examination, and tests. The second section deals with disease specific material, giving due weight and explanation to more common conditions. The third section covers respiratory pharmacology, and the fourth consists of multiple choice review questions. The book is illustrated throughout by case studies, plus photos and diagrams in full colour.

Care of patients with respiratory illness is given by a multidisciplinary team, and Understanding Respiratory Medicine is designed to appeal to medical students, young doctor, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, physiological measurement technicians and clinical scientists.
