This succinct, bulleted handbook is the ultimate resource for pulmonary and respiratory specialists. Throughout the book, tables and figures summarize important clinical data and current professional society recommendations, while salient references provide readers with the latest, evidence-based research.

Divided into three sections, section one reviews the assessment process and provides practical guidance and algorithms for the evaluation of the cardinal signs of respiratory disease. Section two outlines tests and procedures that are unique to pulmonary medicine and helps the reader to determine when a test or procedure is appropriate, the limitations of the procedure, how to interpret test results correctly, and advice on counseling the patient. The final section contains in-depth coverage of both common and uncommon diseases that affect the lungs.

● Approach to the Patient
