This handbook is part of the 'Emergencies in' series, which complements the Oxford Handbooks. It provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in respiratory medicine, from the immediately life-threatening to the smaller but urgent problems that may arise. It is concise and didactic, and complements the 'Emergencies' section of the Oxford Handbook of Respiratory Medicine. Respiratory disease is the most common illness responsible for an emergency admission to hospital and, as such, requires rapid and effective management. This book combines symptom and disease based sections. The first and second sections are symptom-based, exploring assessment, investigation and differential diagnoses. The third section is disease-based and explains how to manage the diagnoses covered in section one and two. The fourth section addresses practical issues from interpreting tests to practical procedures. The fifth section covers investigations. Aimed at foundation year doctors and trainees, this book will also prove invaluable to staff in accident and emergency medicine, general practitioners, anaesthetists, intensivists, cardiologists, and specialist respiratory nurses during their respiratory medicine training.
