Case Based Reviews in Pediatric Pulmonology / Kana Ram Jat, Jhuma Sankar, Rakesh Lodha, Sushil K Kabra
First Edition: 2017
Respiratory diseases are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in children. Significant advances have occurred leading to better understanding of pediatric respiratory illnesses. Diagnostic tests have improved and with better treatment, outcome of acute as well as chronic illnesses has improved.
Basic principles of clinical medicine include, making a provisional diagnosis from history and clinical examination and confirming diagnosis by using available investigations judiciously.
In the first edition of this multi-author book, we have included cases of common respiratory illnesses and discussed them based on clinical findings to reach a diagnosis by using available investigations, where indicated. We have also discussed the principles of management and outcome of patients. The cases were selected considering the local epidemiological situation, sociodemographic background of patients, and available resources.
The basic aim of the book is to equip practicing pediatricians with necessary knowledge to consider and confirm various respiratory illnesses in children. We hope the book will achieve its objective.
