Dec 112019
 

A concise review of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and management of common respiratory conditions seen in a primary care setting. Using an illuminating case-based approach, Dr. Mintz assesses the key clinical questions that a primary care physician would ask and applies the most up-to-date research and guidelines to offer the practitioner evidence-based solutions. The author covers the range of knowledge needed to provide excellent care for patients with respiratory disease, from the basics of pulmonary function testing to understanding and caring for common respiratory illnesses, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, allergic rhinitis, and pneumonia. For each disorder, Dr. Mintz explains the key points regarding the epidemiology of the disease, its pathophysiology, the differential diagnosis and diagnosis, and its recommended treatment. A special PDA version of Disorders of the Respiratory Tract: Common Challenges in Primary Care is also available.

Diseases of the Central Airways: A Clinical Guide (Respiratory Medicine)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Diseases of the Central Airways: A Clinical Guide (Respiratory Medicine)
Nov 112019
 

This book explores the non-interventional aspects of interventional pulmonology, focusing on diseases of the central airways. As the field of bronchology and interventional pulmonology expands, newer conditions involving the central airways are being recognized with increasing frequency. Current literature has mainly focused on technical aspects of the subspecialty, but this book illuminates what else interventional pulmonology has to offer the pulmonologist, including diagnosis and alternate therapeutic options. Diseases of the Central Airways: A Clinical Guide presents techniques for the diagnoses, management and treatment of patients with intriguing central airway conditions such as: black bronchoscopy, tracheobronchomalacia, endobronchial tuberculosis, and tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica. In-depth chapters are written by international experts and are up-to-date and comprehensive reviews. This important new book will contribute significantly to the welfare of patients with lung ailments of the central airways. ​

Respiratory Medicine and Science (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Respiratory Medicine and Science (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)
Nov 092019
 

This is the book that provides expert advice on the clinical aspects of respiratory disorders. The exemplary topics are obstructive sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, angiological sequelae of sarcoidosis, or epidemiology of seasonal influenza epidemics. The emphasis is placed on the pathogenetic aspects, and the relevance and translational potential of experimental studies. The book also presents the latest trends having to with more accessible and personalized health care for chronically ill aged persons, stressing the importance of the mental and emotional sphere in upholding the feeling of life satisfaction. The entwinement of pathophysiological processes raises the issue of the development of individualized and targeted therapeutic management strategies. Clinical practitioners should liaise with medical researchers on the design and execution of investigations to enhance translational power of basic science findings. The book will be of interest to clinicians, researchers, health care providers, and other medical professionals.

Acute Respiratory Infections

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Acute Respiratory Infections
Nov 012019
 

Respiratory tract infections (Rtis) are the most common acute medical problem encountered in primary care. Not only are Rtis very common, the spectrum of disease is wide. Clinical management differs according to the characteristics of the infected host and infecting pathogen. Despite these features, there are currently no pocketbooks that bring together clinically relevant information on this broad and important subject area in an accessible and practical manner.
This pocketbook offers a concise companion for health care professionals who manage patients with acute lung infections. The book covers aspects related to the diagnosis and initial management of these patients, with attention to specific infections which are notable for being difficult to manage, common or of particular clinical importance. The book will appeal to a wide variety of professionals in acute medicine, respiratory medicine, infectious diseases, primary care, and other internal medicine specialties.

Essays on the History of Respiratory Physiology

 Physiology, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Essays on the History of Respiratory Physiology
Oct 202019
 

This book consists of 23 essays about prominent people and events in the history of respiratory physiology. It provides a first-hand chronicle of the advancements made in respiratory physiology starting with Galen and the beginnings of Western physiology. The volume covers every aspect of the evolution of this important area of knowledge: pulmonary circulation, Boyle’s Law, pulmonary capillaries and alveoli, morphology, gas exchange and blood flow, mechanics, control of ventilation, and comparative physiology. The book emphasizes societal and philosophical aspects of the history of science. Although it concentrates on physiology, it also describes how cultural movements, such as The Enlightenment, shaped the researchers discussed.

The Respiratory System in Equations

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on The Respiratory System in Equations
Sep 182019
 

This book proposes an introduction to the mathematical modeling of the respiratory system. A detailed introduction on the physiological aspects makes it accessible to a large audience without any prior knowledge on the lung. Different levels of description are proposed, from the lumped models with a small number of parameters (Ordinary Differential Equations), up to infinite dimensional models based on Partial Differential Equations. Besides these two types of differential equations, two chapters are dedicated to resistive networks, and to the way they can be used to investigate the dependence of the resistance of the lung upon geometrical characteristics. The theoretical analysis of the various models is provided, together with state-of-the-art techniques to compute approximate solutions, allowing comparisons with experimental measurements. The book contains several exercises, most of which are accessible to advanced undergraduate students.

Mathematical Modeling and Validation in Physiology: Applications to the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems

 Cardiovascular, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Mathematical Modeling and Validation in Physiology: Applications to the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems
Sep 132019
 

This volume synthesizes theoretical and practical aspects of both the mathematical and life science viewpoints needed for modeling of the cardiovascular-respiratory system specifically and physiological systems generally. Theoretical points include model design, model complexity and validation in the light of available data, as well as control theory approaches to feedback delay and Kalman filter applications to parameter identification. State of the art approaches using parameter sensitivity are discussed for enhancing model identifiability through joint analysis of model structure and data. Practical examples illustrate model development at various levels of complexity based on given physiological information. The sensitivity-based approaches for examining model identifiability are illustrated by means of specific modeling examples. The themes presented address the current problem of patient-specific model adaptation in the clinical setting, where data is typically limited.
