The role of bronchoscopy in the evaluation and treatment of respiratory disease has evolved dramatically over the last decade. Originally a tool for examining and sampling the central endobronchial tree, it has broadened considerably to include techniques that now enable the treatment of an increasing number of conditions. In this ERS Monograph, the Guest Editors make this broad area easy to navigate by separating the book into three sections: technical aspects, diagnostic procedures, and therapeutic interventions. Within these sections, leading authors in the field provide chapters that include: flexible and rigid bronchoscopy, bronchoscopy in intensive care, laryngoscopy, biopsy techniques, EBUS and EUS, cryobiopsy, early cancer therapies and airway stents.

Jun 122018
 

This book will provide the reader with an overview of the essential meanings of key words in the physiology of various organ systems. This book is linked to a Question and Answer book on these organ systems that was published previously by Springer and will focus on cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal physiology. Each physiology system will be organized in to five different sections, covering the main areas of interest and each section will contain at least ten clear definitions of the main topics in this area. This book will present an easy reference guide for those just starting out in the area of physiology and for those who are interested in clear and succinct definitions of key terms.

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• Pharmacology • Intermediate, home-based and end of life care

May 032018
 

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a multi-system disorder, requiring not just respiratory expertise but also management of nutrition, and diabetes, as well psychosocial issues. This pocketbook will be a concise companion for all health care professionals in respiratory medicine, paediatrics, and primary care who manage, or come across, patients with CF. The book will cover all aspects of care, including both paediatric and adult-specific issues and summarize up-to-date literature in a concise and focussed style. 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.
