    Summary

    Respiratory problems are the commonest cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance.

    For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

    The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including:

       

    • The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects
    •  

    • Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop
    •  

    • Differences between TLCO and KCO
    •  

    • Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2
    •  

    • The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure
    •  

    • Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis
    •  

    • The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure

    The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for any who seek only a grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for those completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

    Hipertensiunea pulmonară – subiect de carte – iată ce aduce nou acest Congres de Cardiologie.

      Hipertensiunea pulmonară a ajuns un subiect modern, mai ales acum în lumina noilor tratamente active.

      Este vorba de:

    - medicaţia ,,la zi” (prostacicline şi analogii prostaciclinelor; anatagonişti ai receptorilor endotelinei - bosentan, macitentan; inhibitori ai fosfodiesterazei – sildenafil, riociguat şi, de ce nu, blocanţii de calciu...),

    - combinaţiile medicamentoase,

    - procedurile intervenţionale şi chirurgicale (transplantul bipulmonar) care ar putea salva viaţa acestor bolnavi.

     

    Cum se prezintă în Clinică o istorie de hipertensiune pulmonară?

      Este ceva ce o diferenţiază concret de alte cazuri?

      Da, sunt lucruri care îi dau un aer personal, o fac să fie asemenea prezenţei materne – când o vezi să-i spui cu certitudine, cu toată încrederea ,,ea este a mea mămică” ca şi Nichita Stănescu…

     

    ,,Mânjii toţi au zis de iepe,

                   Firul cepii a zis de cepe,

                   Nucii toţi au zis de nucă,

                      Cucii toţi au zis de cucă,

                   Toţi pisoii de pisică,

                   Iară eu, de-a mea mămică! ”

     

    Cine a contribuit la ,,rezolvarea” acestor cazuri?

    O seamă de doctori din toată ţara; i-am adunat (fiindu-mi mai aproape) pe cei din Bucureşti:

    - profesorul Miron Bogdan, preşedintele programului de Hipertensiune Pulmonară al Ministerului Sănătăţii,

    - profesorul I. M. Coman, coordonator al programului HTP în ,,IUBCV C.C. Iliescu” şi preşedintele Fundaţiei adulţilor cu boli cardiace congenitale

    - doamna doctor Ioana Ghiorghiu care a fost responsabilă de acest program în Clinica de Cardiologie III, ca să-l predea apoi

    - doamnei doctor Roxana Enache – care cu perseverenţă şi îndrăzneală a adunat în jurul său doctorii interesaţi de această patologie.

     

    Există istorii clinice surprinzătoare?

    Da, o mulţime: cazuri familiale; hipertensiunea portopulmonară; ventricul stâng unic necorectat; dextrocardie, sindrom Eisenmenger, prolaps de valvă mitrală şi tricuspidă; histiocitoză cu celule Langerhans; obezitate şi sindrom de apnee în somn; hipertensiuni tromboembolice operabile sau nu; scleroză sistemică; hipertensiune pulmonară multifactorială (are chirurgul vreun rol?); diagnostic de hipertensiune pulmonară aparent ferm, dar infirmat...

     

    În plus – cartea are ataşat un CD care conţine întrebările şi răspunsurile ,,cheie” şi unele imagini interpretabile doar în mişcare.

     

    Merită să cumpăraţi această carte?

    Sigur! Veţi găsi lucruri cu adevărat noi despre cauzele şi modul de rezolvare – cel puţin parţial – al hipertensiunii pulmonare...

    Tuberculosis remains one of the most prevalent, deadly, and underdiagnosed infectious diseases in the world. In children, this burden is doubly problematic because of the disease's unique clinical characteristics and its need for special public health and diagnostic techniques. After decades of relative inattention to these factors, childhood tuberculosis has now grown into an important area of competency for child health programs in low-burden areas, including the United States.

    The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Tuberculosis is a state of the art clinical reference written and edited by the world's leading experts in childhood tuberculosis. It offers clinicians in any geography or setting practical, evidence-based advice on all aspects of the disease, including its natural history, epidemiology, presentation, treatment, and prevention — all in a format that synthesizes literature with the clinical experience of the leading authorities in this challenging field.

    As the need for childhood tuberculosis services in child health programs grows, this handbook provides a new benchmark for practitioners and trainees in pediatrics, infectious disease, pulmonary medicine, and public health to better understand this persisting and difficult disease.

    This atlas is designed as an easy-to-use reference guide that identifies and illustrates the key patterns of diffuse lung diseases observed on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and then documents in more detail the characteristics and appearances of the individual diseases, grouped on the basis of their prevalent pattern. A further feature of the book is its interdisciplinary nature: contributions from experts in various specialties are tightly interwoven throughout and many pathologic correlations are included.

    Less experienced readers will find that this atlas, with its wealth of figures and helpful color coding, steers them towards correct interpretation when confronted by the multiplicity and complexity of these diseases; those who are already experts, on the other hand, will benefit from the detailed coverage of individual diseases, which will deepen their understanding. At the end of the book, a graphically appealing and practice-oriented illustrated glossary with tips and tricks offers a further highly effective educational tool. Given the clinical spectrum of diseases covered, this atlas will prove invaluable for a wide range of healthcare workers, especially radiologists, pulmonologists, and pathologists.

    Offers integration of physiology and practice for pulmonary function tests

    Presents clear explanation of rationale for and interpretations of pulmonary function tests

    Includes multiple case studies to better elucidate the decisions and results described

     

    About this Textbook


         This book serves as a unique, comprehensive resource for physicians and scientists training in pulmonary medicine and learning about pulmonary function testing.  Pulmonary function testing and the physiological principles that underlie it are often poorly understood by medical students, residents, fellows and graduate students training in the medical sciences.  One reason is that students tend to get overwhelmed by the basic mathematical descriptions that explain the working of the respiratory system and the principles of pulmonary function testing.  Another reason is that too many approaches focus on the math without explaining the clinical relevance of these principles and the laboratory testing that enables us to measure the very lung function that these principles are describing.
         This book answers that need by providing a series of chapters that guide the reader in a natural order of learning about the respiratory system.  In particular, after a general overview of the structure-function design of the lung and the history of pulmonary function testing, authors begin with the drive to breathe, and then follow the pathway of air as it is drawn into the lung, undergoes gas exchange, and is then exhaled back out again.  Each chapter focuses on the key principles and corresponding pulmonary function tests that explain each step in this pathway. Each chapter is written by at least two experts, one with expertise in the underlying physiology, and the other with expertise in the clinical testing and application of pulmonary function testing in practice. Many figures and tables highlight key points, and multiple case studies in each section provide specific examples of the clinical application of each pulmonary function test.
         This is an ideal guide to pulmonary function tests for practicing pulmonologists, residents, fellows, and medical students.

    About this book


    This new edition offers comprehensive coverage of all areas of interventional pulmonology, a minimally invasive endoscopic method for diagnosing and treating lung disorders.


    The text is divided into eight sections on the major areas of interventional pulmonology, including basic endoscopy, lung cancer staging, and interventional bronschoscopy in asthma and emphysema. Chapters then explore specific procedures and techniques, including medical thoracoscopy, flexible and rigid bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound, and electromagnetical navigation with coverage of history, indications and contraindications, and up-to-date evidence-based reviews. In recent years there have been many advances in interventional pulmonology, the most significant relating to lung cancer early diagnosis and late-stage treatment.


    Two new chapters on lung cancer epidemiologic changes and personalized lung cancer treatment explore new methods for maximizing patient care for an increasingly prevalent disease. This inclusive volume concludes with a look towards the future of interventional pulmonology and experimental techniques currently being tested. Interventions in Pulmonary Medicine, Second Edition, is a must have for pulmonologists, endoscopists, pulmonary oncologists, ENT physicians, thoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensive care specialists and their teams.
