 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Respiratory Care: Assessment and Management
Aug 142021
 

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

Neonatal Respiratory Disorders (Arnold Publication)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Neonatal Respiratory Disorders (Arnold Publication)
Jul 162021
 

Lung disease is a major indication for the admittance of the neonate to a specialist intensive care unit, and is a particularly common complication in the pre-term baby where the lungs are in sufficiently developed at birth and easily damaged by early treatments. As a consequence, this is an
area of intensive international research activity. In this comprehensive update of the well-received first edition, leading researchers from all over the world have been invited to contribute in their specialist areas. The book continues to provide detailed coverage of the pathogenesis, clinical and
laboratory features and management of lung disorders in the neonate, with increased emphasis on the underlying immunology and major additions to the sections on respiratory support, chronic lung disease and abnormalities in lung growth and development to reflect the changes that have occurred in
these areas since the previous edition appeared in 1995. Providing an unrivalled up-to-date statement on the problems that are faced in the neonatal intensive care unit on a daily basis, this is an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of neonatologists and other personnel involved in the care of
critically ill babies.

This book provides an in-depth ‘state-of-the-art’ critical review of the technique and the applications of flexible and rigid bronchoscopy to infants and children. Written by an international panel of experts, it reviews the technical aspects of the procedure, its common and highly specialized applications as well as its potential alternatives. The chapters are enhanced by a wealth of original figures. A major innovation of the book is the inclusion of online videos from actual bronchoscopies that further illustrate and elaborate on the information provided in the text. The book is addressed to paediatric pulmonologists and otorhinolaryngologists, both experienced and in training, as well as to other personnel who are involved in the performance of the procedures. In addition, it is recommended to pulmonologists for adults and general paediatricians who need to be able to evaluate the usefulness of bronchoscopy for their patients and be aware of its limitations and potential contra-indications.
