Linda Nici, Richard ZuWallack - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Co-Morbidities and Systemic Consequences
Published: 2011-11-05 | ISBN: 1607616726 | 299 pages

 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. By 2020, COPD is expected to be the fifth leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death. COPD is associated with significant co-morbid illnesses including cardiovascular disease, pulmonary vascular disease, osteoporosis, depression and thoracic malignancies. In addition, COPD patients often have systemic manifestations of their disease, including peripheral muscle dysfunction, decreased activity levels and nutritional abnormalities, all of which contribute to poor functional status, decreased quality of life and increased health care utilization. Lack of recognition and understanding of the complex interactions of these common co-morbid conditions and systemic effects often contributes to sub-optimal care for patients with COPD. Comprehensive in covering the range of co-morbidities that often accompany COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Co-Morbidities and Systemic Consequences provides a concise, evidence-based review of the problem and its systemic manifestations. All physicians interested in this growing disorder – from subspecialists to primary care providers –will find in this timely and informative title the practical, state-of-the art approaches needed to provide targeted, integrated care for patients with COPD.

Allergens and respiratory pollutants: The role of innate immunity By Marc Williams
2011 | 312 Pages | ISBN: 1907568549 |


- Discusses recent advances in our understanding of cell mediated innate immune mechanisms that occur during allergic inflammation
- Offers important timely coverage of diseases of concern and how such diseases are influenced by a dysfunctional immune system
- Provides useful information on linking environmental “danger signals” that provoke immune dysfunction and exacerbation of existing disease
- Is highly relevant to the basic researcher as well as those practicing health care in the fields of pulmonary medicine, human clinical immunology and translational medicine
This book is a collection of 12 authoritative papers that draws upon the collective expertise of world leaders in the fields of innate immunity, immunotoxicology and pulmonary biology, including Dr. Timothy Bigby (University of California, San Diego), Dr. Donald Cook (National Institutes of Health), Professor Mark Frampton (University of Rochester Medical Center) and Professor Paul Noble (Duke University Medical Center), under the editorship of Dr.Marc Williams, (EPA). Collectively, it provides an educational forum that links the health effects of environmental exposures, immune dysfunction and inflammatory airways disease. The contributors critically explore the biological and immunological mechanisms that add to immune dysfunction on exposure to allergens, the susceptibility to infectious disease on exposure to ambient pollutants and the clinical relevance of exposure to ambient airborne xenobiotics.

Margaret Pisani - Aging and Lung Disease: A Clinical Guide
Published: 2011-10-13 | ISBN: 1607617269 | 325 pages

 People age 65 and older are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. In the 2010 census 16% of the population, 50 million people, were age 65 and older. That number is projected to increase to 66 million by the year 2050. Life expectancy has also increased, with recent CDC reports indicating life expectancy at 77.9 years. Age-adjusted death rates have decreased significantly with the largest changes occurring in older patients. Despite these trends, the 10 leading causes of death include several pulmonary etiologies including lung cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia. Aging and Lung Disease: A Clinical Guide is devoted to understanding the impact of respiratory diseases in older patients. It includes reviews of physiology of the aging lung, allergy and immunology of the aging, as well as sleep changes over the life cycle. There are also comprehensive reviews on specific disease topics including chronic obstructive lung disease, lung cancer, atypical mycobacteria, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary embolism, obstructive sleep apnea, sleep disorders in older patients. Two chapters focus on unique issues in older patients; HIV and lung transplant. Included also are important chapters on assessing functional and cognitive status and end-of-life issues in older patients with lung disease. In addition to outlining the current state of knowledge, each chapter focuses on special considerations when caring for older patients. Of particular interest to pulmonologists, internists, and gerontologists, other readers, such as pulmonary and geriatric nurse practitioners, as well as clinical researchers interested in both pulmonary and aging issues, will find Aging and Lung Disease: A Clinical Guide to be a vital resource for improving their care of older patients with lung disorders.

For ease of use Flexible Bronchoscopy is divided into four major sections:

• Fundamentals of Bronchoscopy
• Diagnostic Bronchoscopy
• Therapeutic Bronchoscopy
• Special Considerations
Flexible Bronchoscopyis an ideal training manual for all respiratory and pulmonary physicians, as well as trainees and residents working in the field of respiratory medicine, who need to develop the skill of interventional bronchoscopy.

Atlas of Endoscopic Major Pulmonary Resections By Dominique Gossot
English | 2010 | 184 Pages | ISBN: 2287997768 

Video-assisted major pulmonary resections are gaining popularity, as it becomes obvious that minimally invasive surgery is beneficial in terms of reduced postoperative pain, shorted hospital stay, shorter recovery and better compliance to adjuvant chemotherapy, without compromising oncological principles.

Different techniques have been described, depending on the use or non-use of an accessory mini-thoracotomy and of endoscopic instrumentation and video display. One of these techniques is the totally endoscopic approach. This technique can prove challenging and tedious because the operating mode and even the anatomical landmarks are different and, in some ways, have to be relearned. The purpose of this atlas is to describe each endoscopic pulmonary lobectomy and segmentectomy step by step, relying on brief technical notes and high-quality still pictures which are orientated and labelled to make them as comprehensible as possible. Each chapter is introduced by an anatomical background which is illustrated by three-dimensional reconstructions. Technical «tricks» and specific dangers are mentioned by pictograms.
