Key Topics in Respiratory Medicine Summary

Key Topics in Respiratory Medicine by W J M Kinnear (University Hospital, Nottingham, England, UK)

This book covers all the important topics in respiratory medicine. The authors are respiratory physicians and the emphasis throughout is on the practicalities of diagnosis and management. After discussion of the important points in taking a history and examining a patient with a respiratory problem, the main diagnostic tests are described together with their indications. All respiratory diseases that are likely to be encountered in the UK are then covered systematically. Further sections deal with respiratory diseases in special situations such as pregnancy or the immunocompromised host. This is a useful reference book, and an ideal revision aid for postgraduate examinations.
