There will be an emphasis on the practical aspects of management with the effects of CF in the lung, the microbiology of pulmonary CF, and management of exacerbations covered in separate chapters. The psychosocial aspects of CF care, end of life care and lung transplantation will also be addressed, and potential future therapies reviewed. This second edition will be updated to reflect the UK CF Trust Standards of Care; include emerging organisms, eg Pandorea, and treatment guidelines and Cochrane reviews; an expanded section on physiotherapy; and a new chapter on pharmacopeia.

Breath Sounds: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Breath Sounds: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice
Apr 152018
 

This book offers up-to-date information on the recording and analysis of respiratory sounds that will assist in clinical routine. The opening sections deliver basic knowledge on aspects such as the physics of sound and sound transmission in the body, a clear understanding of which is key to good clinical practice. Current techniques of breath sound analysis are described, and the diagnostic impact of advances in the processing of lung sound signals is carefully explained.
With the aid of audio files that are available online, detailed guidance is then provided on differentiation of normal and abnormal breath sounds and identification of the various sounds, including crackles, wheezes, other lung sounds, cough sounds, and sounds of extrathoracic origin. The book is of high educational value and represents an excellent learning tool at pre- and postgraduate levels. It will also appeal to researchers as it provides comprehensive summaries of knowledge in particular research fields. The editors bring high-level expertise to the subject, including membership of the European Respiratory Society Task Force on the standardization of categories and nomenclature for breath sounds.

Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition
Apr 112018
 

Respiratory problems are the most common cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance.

For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including:

The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects
Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop
Differences between TLCO and KCO
Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2
The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure
Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis
The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure
The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for those seeking a basic grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for readers completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

Asthma, COPD, and Overlap: A Case-Based Overview of Similarities and Differences

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Asthma, COPD, and Overlap: A Case-Based Overview of Similarities and Differences
Apr 092018
 

Using illustrative case examples, this book thoroughly reviews similarities and differences between asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the overlap syndrome. It is important to highlight the distinctions because these commonly encountered conditions in respiratory and primary care share many similarities but have important differences often mistaken for each other. This can have serious implications for treatment, particularly as new treatments are targeted at specific phenotypes of the diseases. This practical guide shows how to distinguish between the diseases on a pathological and clinical basis so that appropriate management and treatment may be pursued.
