Interventional Pulmonology

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Interventional Pulmonology

The role of bronchoscopy in the evaluation and treatment of respiratory disease has evolved dramatically over the last decade. Originally a tool for examining and sampling the central endobronchial tree, it has broadened considerably to include techniques that now enable the treatment of an increasing number of conditions. In this ERS Monograph, the Guest Editors make this broad area easy to navigate by separating the book into three sections: technical aspects, diagnostic procedures, and therapeutic interventions. Within these sections, leading authors in the field provide chapters that include: flexible and rigid bronchoscopy, bronchoscopy in intensive care, laryngoscopy, biopsy techniques, EBUS and EUS, cryobiopsy, early cancer therapies and airway stents.

More than 30% of patients who visit a doctor each year have respiratory complaints. These can range from minor infections (such as the common cold) to chronic obstructive conditions (such as asthma).This helpful book looks at the respiratory problems that nursing and healthcare professionals are most likely to encounter in clinical practice. Beginning with an overview of the respiratory system, the author then discusses history taking, and the physical assessment and secondary tests needed to assess a patient with an undiagnosed respiratory condition. This is followed by chapters on the aetiology, assessment and management of specific acute and chronic conditions, as well as a chapter on the pharmacology of respiratory disease. Finally, the author looks at intermediate, home-based and end of life care.Featuring boxes, tables, diagrams, reader activities, a list of abbreviations and a full glossary, this book offers a holistic and practical approach to caring for a patient with a respiratory disease.Contents include:• Introduction• A quick look at anatomy and physiology• Respiratory assessment• Physical assessment• Secondary data• Acute conditions • Chronic conditions• Self-management• Pharmacology • Intermediate, home-based and end of life care
