Book Description

21 July 2005 0198529775 978-0200000000 1st Edition
This handbook provides a fast, reliable look-up reference on all chest diseases - for junior doctors, trainee specialists in respiratory medicine, and other health workers. First there are chapters on all the major respiratory symptoms. Once the differential diagnosis has been made, the reader can turn to the pages on the respiratory diseases, each of which is covered in a consistent format including practical tips for the out-patient clinic or ward setting. There is a unique section on how to do practical procedures, together with essential technical and reference information. Useful pages on lung and bronchial anatomy, CT anatomy, lung function and blood-gas nomograms, and a list of useful web sites are included for easy reference. Like all the Oxford Handbooks, this handbook combines authority, relevance and reliability.

Product Description


The Oxford Handbook series has done it again. It has produced yet another concise, pocket-sized gem of knowledge and practical tips, it should ideally be found on all respiratory wards. ... Well indexed, clear and concise, this is one of the most useful books I have come across and any aspiring respiratory physician will enjoy it. (British Journal of Hospital Medicine)

Although this book is intended for anyone who is interested in pulmonary medicine, it will be very useful for trainees in many affiliated fields ... This superb reference is well suited for a trainee as well as busy practising internist and those in services affiliated with respiratory medicine. (Doody's Journal)

3.0 out of 5 stars Print too small 18 Jan 2014
By Mr. R. G. A. Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To be useful, such a book would need to have an adequate cross reference between symptoms, diseases and diagnoses. This book has hundreds of pages of describing the essentials of each illness, what to do, prognosis, tests - but only a very poor index. It is also in a tiny faint font that requires very strong full daylight to read. In a normally lit room in Winter I needed to use a close up torch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro 18 July 2007
Good intro into the realm of respiratory medicine. Wish there were more references so that one could delve deeper if needed.
