Clinical Pediatrics—Respiratory Disorders for Students and Practitioners

by Gopakumar H, Reeshma Gopakumar

This book is an attempt to provide a rational approach to pediatric pulmonology practice. The questions discussed are those that often arose during various interactive sessions with clinicians and students. Hence, the work stems from the clinical inquisitiveness of the clinicians and students. Respiratory system disorders form the major portion of cases attended by any pediatric practitioner. Majority of morbidity and mortality are also related to the same disorders. Hence, there is a need to understand this subspeciality with relative thoroughness. This book is meant for undergraduates, postgraduates and practicing pediatricians. The common problems and their management are discussed in order to evolve the most effective treatment strategy, thereby providing maximum benefit to the patient. Questions frequently asked in viva voce are included for the benefit of undergraduates and postgraduates. Information on recent advances in pediatric pulmonology which would be of special interest to the postgraduates and practicing pediatricians are also incorporated. Further, a stepwise management protocol is included under various headings to provide clear cut treatment guidelines.
