This handbook features short reviews of 112 topics in pulmonary medicine written by over 130 authors.


It is intended as an update and review of topics in pulmonary medicine of interest to clinicians and trainees.


The target audience includes pulmonary and critical care specialists taking care of patients, as well as residents, fellows-in-training, and paramedical personnel who can use it as a quick review.


Although the book covers almost all relevant topics in pulmonary medicine, it is heavy on infectious diseases, especially tropical diseases. The descriptions of tropical diseases will be very useful for physicians taking of patients in a nonendemic area. The discussions of tuberculosis in particular are well researched and well written. Critical care topics receive special attention and are designed for quick reading. This book can serve as an initial resource for these topics, although it does not include references. The index is difficult to use and does not cover many topics in the book.


Overall, this is an excellent reference. The editor in chief has done an excellent job of recruiting outstanding authors to contribute to this resource on pulmonary and critical care medicine.
