In the era of evidence-based medicine, clinicians draw upon a vast resource of research-based evidence to guide their practice. However, finding this information is not always easy, particularly when it is most needed. In the case of respiratory medicine which covers more than 40 individual conditions, the research-based evidence may be limited and/or disproportionate to the incidence of the condition. Guidelines are available but difficult and time consuming to find. This book is designed to overcome this problem. Many of the key recommendations to be found in current evidence-based guidelines are presented in a uniform and accessible format. The same format has been used for expert opinion on best practice where the evidence base is limited. The design of this book makes locating the information needed both quick and simple, and the succinct yet easy-to-read nature of the text means that key points can be reviewed and assimilated rapidly. The text is enhanced by a number of summary boxes and tables for quick reference to the key points covered in the narrative. A large number of these sections also have radiological images illustrating the relevant abnormalities. Written by experts in their field, this book presents a succinct overview based on both best practice and available research evidence.

The book delivers a good balance of science and clinical guidance, which often favours a back to basics approach interspersed with golden nuggets of information of value to even the most senior clinicians. * Rana Rabbani, Countess of Chester Hospital, Chester, British Journal of Hospital Medicine *
The editors - Drs. Nick Maskell and Ann Millar - have done a very remarkable job of gathering so much information from the 140 contributors and woven it so well together with all the graphic aids. You will benefit immensely by using it. * Biz India, March 2013 *
