Respiratory Medicine

by Laura-Jane Smith, Jennifer Quint, Jeremy S Brown

Respiratory diseases are both common and varied, and include chronic inflammatory conditions, malignancy and infectious diseases. A sound understanding of the common respiratory diseases is essential for all clinicians. Eureka Respiratory Medicine provides the key skills to succeed in treating respiratory conditions including the ability to take a good history, interpret examination findings, integrate investigation results and apply these to the management of patients. The book commences with a chapter that provides the core respiratory anatomy, physiology and immunology that are essential for an understanding of respiratory disorders. The book contains several disease-based chapters that give concise descriptions of all major respiratory disorders such as airway diseases, interstitial lung diseases, and lung infections. Each chapter is introduced by one or more detailed cases that show how patients present, how clinicians think through the diagnosis and how they decide which investigations to perform. The book also includes chapters on respiratory emergencies and integrated patient care. The book aims to provide students with all of the tools they require to become successful clinicians in the future.
