Lung Cancer (The Facts) (Paperback)

By (author): Stephen Falk, Chris Williams

Lung cancer is the most common cancer affecting the industrialized world and affects the lives of thousands of people, including patients' friends and family, every year. The most common cause of lung cancer is long-term exposure to tobacco smoke. The occurrence of lung cancer in non-smokers, who account for as many as 15% of cases, is often attributed to a combination of genetic factors, radon gas, asbestos, and air pollution, including secondhand smoke.

The aim of this book is to give, in a clear and simple way, succinct information about all aspects of this type of cancer, with a stress on the practical side of its treatment. The book also details how care is likely to be organized and what patients can do to help themselves, both if they have the disease and also how to stop smoking.

Fully updated for this third edition, the book includes information on getting the best treatment and living with cancer, both of which are new approaches to the disease in the UK.

In the face of the rapid developments in sleep medicine, this book seeks to present the current knowledge in the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of sleep apnea. New physiological approaches to modeling sleep and recent pathophysiologic findings in upper airway mechanics as well as the importance of inflammatory and oxidative processes and the underlying genetic aspects are discussed to open up new avenues of investigation for better understanding and improved therapeutic options. Besides the well-known CPAP therapy, chapters describe novel therapeutic methods that are currently under investigation and highlight their future prospects, limitations as well as recommendations for practice. The influence of breathing disturbances on the cardiovascular system during sleep is significant. Reviews of central sleep apnea and of cardiovascular complications of sleep-disordered breathing therefore play an important role in this edition. Some of the chapters are dedicated to specific aspects in children, in the elderly and in pregnancy and receive special attention as sleep apnea is relevant to all ages. The excellent contributions to this volume will be stimulating reading to pneumologists, sleep and ENT specialists, neurologists, dental surgeons, cardiologists, obstetricians, general practitioners as well as public health specialists.

From acute respiratory diseases to chronic lung conditions, pulmonology is a vital area of clinical medicine. Due to a wide array of respiratory diseases, clinical presentation of pulmonary conditions can be complex and oftentimes challenging. In addition to recognizing common characteristics of lung diseases, identifying unusual clinical presentation of pulmonary conditions remains an important educational experience. This concise and easy-to-read title provides that experience in practical context, using a case-based system of learning where a unique case is presented and discussed and questions are provided to challenge the learner and reinforce the transmission of knowledge. Challenging Cases in Pulmonology is not an exhaustive review but rather focuses on common and important problems, with emphasis on evaluation and treatment. The book offers 16 chapters consisting of two or more cases followed by five to ten multiple choice questions. A valuable resource for pulmonologists, allergists, primary care physicians, internal medicine, fellows in allergy and pulmonology, and residents in training, this practical title will also be of interest to nurses, physician assistants, and medical students studying pulmonology. Challenging Cases in Pulmonology complements two previously published case-based titles edited by Dr. Mahmoudi: Challenging Cases in Allergy and Immunology (Humana Press, 2009) and Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic Diseases of the Skin (Springer, 2010).

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.
