This book will help the reader confused by a multiplicity of diseases responsible for similar symptoms in different patients. The chapters are noticeably sign-oriented rather than disease-oriented, each dealing with one of the four cardinal modalities of HRCT presentation. Each chapter is introduced by a list of diseases, immediately followed by a detailed description of each disease, and the chapters are illustrated with enlarged images giving rhythm to the written text.

Chest sonography is an established procedure in the assessment of pulmonary and pleural disease, allowing the investigator to make an unequivocal diagnosis without exposing the patient to costly and stressful procedures. Since the second edition of this book, the value of chest sonography has been further demonstrated in many new studies, especially regarding the application of portable ultrasound stethoscope systems. The new edition presents the state of the art in chest investigation by means of ultrasonography and takes into account the results of the 1st International Consensus Conference on Pleural and Lung Ultrasound. The numerous excellent illustrations and the compact text provide concise and easy-to-assimilate information about the diagnostic procedure. Basic aspects such as indications, investigative techniques, and image artifacts are detailed in separate chapters, and new chapters have been included on emergency ultrasound of the chest and pediatric chest sonography.

In the era of evidence-based medicine, clinicians draw upon a vast resource of research-based evidence to guide their practice. However, finding this information is not always easy, particularly when it is most needed. In the case of respiratory medicine which covers more than 40 individual conditions, the research-based evidence may be limited and/or disproportionate to the incidence of the condition. Guidelines are available but difficult and time consuming to find.

This book is designed to overcome this problem. Many of the key recommendations to be found in current evidence-based guidelines are presented in a uniform and accessible format. The same format has been used for expert opinion on best practice where the evidence base is limited. The design of this book makes locating the information needed both quick and simple, and the succinct yet easy-to-read nature of the text means that key points can be reviewed and assimilated rapidly. The text is enhanced by a number of summary boxes and tables for quick reference to the key points covered in the narrative. A large number of these sections also have radiological images illustrating the relevant abnormalities. Written by experts in their field, this book presents a succinct overview based on both best practice and available research evidence.

The dissemination of knowledge, and medical and public education constitute a fundamental objective of the ERS mission; and the ERS School aims to provide excellence in respiratory medicine education. In 2005, the ERS School started the very ambitious HERMES (Harmonised Education in Respiratory Medicine for European Specialists) project. Since then, seven HERMES Task Forces have formed to standardise training and education within different specialties of respiratory medicine. To support the implementation of various educational
activities, the ERS has produced a series of Handbooksas educational tools, with the ERS Handbook of Respiratory Medicinebeing the first textbook to be launched in 2010.
Starting in 2007, the Paediatric Respiratory Medicine Task Force, using a formal consensus process and working with numerous experts throughout Europe, developed a HERMES syllabus (description of the competencies required) and a HERMES curriculum (description of how competencies should be taught, learned and assessed), as well as a voluntary European examination in paediatric respiratory medicine. With the paediatric HERMES project now well underway, it is an opportune time to publish an ERS Handbook of Paediatric Respiratory Medicineto provide a comprehensive update for specialists within this field of respiratory medicine. The content of this Handbookfollows the HERMES syllabus and curriculum to provide a compact, state-of-the-art textbook, with each of the sections prepared by senior specialists and clinical experts in the field.

We hope that this Handbookwill not only inform our trainees but also provide an easily accessible and comprehensive update for colleagues at all levels of seniority across paediatric respiratory medicine. Thus, this educational tool is intended to make a significant contribution to increasing the standards of training in paediatric respiratory medicine throughout Europe and, ultimately, to improving the care of children with respiratory disease.

Eight years ago, the ERS School started a very ambitious project to harmonise education in respiratory medicine for European specialists (HERMES). A preliminary survey among 29 European countries showed considerable variation in postgraduate training. Based on these findings, the ERS School developed a range of consensus documents: a core syllabus describing the competencies required, a curriculum of recommendations indicating how competencies should be taught and learned, an accreditation methodology for training centres, and a voluntary European examination to assess whether specialists have acquired the knowledge-based component of competence. The Handbook, together with a vast array of educational material, such as lectures, articles published in Breatheand the European Respiratory Monograph, and other lectures and courses, all available on the ERS School website, together comprise an unrivalled educational resource for anyone preparing for the European Examination in Adult Respiratory Medicine.

The first edition of the ERS Handbook of Respiratory Medicinewas published in 2010 with the aim of providing state-of-the-art summaries in all areas of respiratory medicine. This second edition of the Handbookhas been extensively peer review and revisited, and includes new sections on
• cytology of the lung
• HRCT of the chest
• long-term ventilation
• opportunistic infections in the immunocompromised host
• the pharmacology of asthma and COPD
• HRCT in the diagnosis of interstitial lung disease
• pathology and molecular biology of lung cancer
• palliative care
The Handbookis a comprehensive, easily accessible source of the essentials of respiratory medicine for senior medical staff requiring revalidation, and nursing and allied healthcare professionals at all levels who wish to keep their knowledge up to date. All readers can be assured that as they set sail to manage patients across the spectrum of respiratory disorders, they are armed with the best information, access to multiple-choice questions to check their knowledge, and a source guide for more in-depth study.
