Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Environmental Behavior and Toxicity in East Asia

 Cardiovascular, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Environmental Behavior and Toxicity in East Asia
Feb 212018
 

This book reviews Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and Nitropolycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (NPAHs) contamination in the context of environmental pollution in Asia.
It is comprised of the following sections: 1. Fundamental Chemistry and General Characteristics; 2. Analytical Methods; 3. Emission Source and Atmospheric Behavior; 4. Atmospheric Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and PM2.5; 5. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Marine Environments; 6. Metabolic Activation/Toxicities; and 7. Environmental Standards and Guidelines. This volume concentrates on the Far East due to the massive consumption of coal and petroleum in China, which has led to considerable levels of air pollution. High concentration of atmospheric PM2.5 in Beijing have been reported since January 2013 and exposure to such high concentrations may cause respiratory, cardiac and lung diseases. Gathering contributions from international experts, this volume provides a valuable reference guide for global researchers and students interested in learning from the East Asian experience.

Interventions in Pulmonary Medicine, 2nd Edition

 Epidemiology, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Interventions in Pulmonary Medicine, 2nd Edition
Feb 212018
 
This new edition offers comprehensive coverage of all areas of interventional pulmonology, a minimally invasive endoscopic method for diagnosing and treating lung disorders. The text is divided into eight sections on the major areas of interventional pulmonology, including basic endoscopy, lung cancer staging, and interventional bronschoscopy in asthma and emphysema. Chapters then explore specific procedures and techniques, including medical thoracoscopy, flexible and rigid bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound, and electromagnetical navigation with coverage of history, indications and contraindications, and up-to-date evidence-based reviews. In recent years there have been many advances in interventional pulmonology, the most significant relating to lung cancer early diagnosis and late-stage treatment. Two new chapters on lung cancer epidemiologic changes and personalized lung cancer treatment explore new methods for maximizing patient care for an increasingly prevalent disease. This inclusive volume concludes with a look towards the future of interventional pulmonology and experimental techniques currently being tested. Interventions in Pulmonary Medicine, Second Edition, is a must have for pulmonologists, endoscopists, pulmonary oncologists, ENT physicians, thoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensive care specialists and their teams.

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Clinical Handbook of Interstitial Lung Disease
Feb 152018
 

 

This handbook provides clinical guidance to the practicing physician on the diagnosis and treatment of Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILD). A contributed work with invited chapters which draw on the knowledge and experience of recognised global leaders in respiratory medicine, it is authoritative, concise and portable and is intended for use in a fast-paced clinical setting. The book:

offers practical tips and clear guidance for clinicians
provides detailed explanations of the main therapeutic options for each individual ILD
contains high-quality visuals, including radiology and histopathology of the most common as well as some of the rarer ILDs
discusses individual ILDs and has topics common to all including critical care, lung transplantation and palliative care
navigates clinicians through cases with decision making guidelines and algorithms
includes appendices with international practice guidelines, sample patient information sheets and other helpful resources.
Emphasizing how to perform a thorough assessment of an ILD patient for accurate diagnosis and their subsequent effective management, this is both a gold standard text as well as a daily companion for physicians caring for ILD patients. A first-of-its-kind, it will become the go-to guide for all clinicians who manage patients with ILD.

Cystic Fibrosis (ERS Monograph)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Cystic Fibrosis (ERS Monograph)
Feb 012018
 

 

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common fatal hereditary diseases. The discovery of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene 25 years ago set the stage for unraveling the pathogenesis of CF lung disease, continuous refinement of symptomatic treatments and the development of mutation-specific therapies, which are now becoming available for a subgroup of patients. This ERS Monograph provides an update on all aspects of CF lung disease, from infancy to adulthood, including current concepts on disease process, improvements in early diagnosis and monitoring, therapeutic approaches, and patient care. The book highlights important recent developments and discusses the next steps that will be required for further improvement of the life expectancy and quality of life of CF patients. It will be an essential reference for basic and clinical scientists and all members of the CF team.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
Feb 012018
 

 

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a common and progressive chronic disease. It is responsible for a high number of comorbidities and is linked with increased mortality, including a rise in the rate of sudden cardiac death. It is widely acknowledged that OSA now affects millions of people worldwide. This Monograph considers this high-impact condition from four different perspectives: pathogenesis; at-risk populations; clinical scenarios; and treatment and management. Comprehensive and up-to-date chapters provide the reader with a concise overview of OSA, making this book a useful reference for pulmonologists concerned with the management of this disease. “Packs up-to-date information in a relatively small and readable book. Both basic and applied scientists and physicians with special interest in sleep medicine will find value… A must-have for training programs not only in sleep medicine but also pulmonary and critical care training programs, for academic clinicians, and groups doing health services or basic research on OSA” Elias Alhanoun, Novera Inam and Kingman Strohl, Sleep and Breathing.

The Nose and Sinuses in Respiratory Disorders

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on The Nose and Sinuses in Respiratory Disorders
Jan 252018
 

Although the upper and lower airways have distinct functions and are managed by different specialists, they also share many characteristics. Problems of the nose and sinuses can impact on the lungs, and vice versa. This ERS Monograph presents an up-to-date overview of the subject area, starting with chapters covering basic anatomy, imaging and practical clinical examination. Other chapters focus on associations with cystic fibrosis, infections, asthma, COPD, non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis, primary ciliary dyskinesia and air pollution. The “united airways” are discussed in terms of the impact of optimal upper airways treatment on lower airways disorders and current guidelines to aid all physicians, especially ENT and chest specialists, in clinical practice.
