Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The Encyclopedia of Respiratory Medicine, 2nd Edition explores the key processes of immunology, physiology and molecular biology that underpin normal lung function as well as the aberrations that occur in respiratory diseases, from common disorders such as asthma and COPD as well as rare lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung diseases and pulmonary hypertension. It also describes the most recent developments in "omics" that will underpin the next generation of diagnosis and treatment of respiratory disorders.

  • Airways biology and diseases
  • Interstitium and interstitial lung diseases; Pulmonary vascular diseases; Pleural diseases
  • Sleep
  • Thoracic cancer
  • Pulmonary infections
  • Intensive care medicine
  • Lung transplantation
  • Paediatric respiratory medicine
  • Public health, environment, and occupational medicine

Key features

  • Encyclopedic coverage: a "one-stop" resource covering modern respiratory medicine in its entirety
  • Foundational resource for a wide audience: chapters are concise and accessible, providing an authoritative introduction for non-specialists and readers from undergraduate level upwards, as well as up-to-date, foundational content for those familiar with the field.

What problem does this MRW solve?

In order to perform their research and provide state of the art healthcare, researchers and practitioners in respiratory medicine need to have the very latest and accurate content concerning techniques, tools, methodologies and current practice in clinical care. To gather this informationthey resort to various resources and spend a lot of time finding the exact and most reliable piece of information they need. This encyclopedia is unique in providing a comprehensive coverage of this field in one expertly authored and meticulously organized resource.

New topics/areas

This is a completely overhauled new edition with a new thematic structure, coverage of latest advances and major focus on clinical aspects:

1. Content is organized by systems/topic rather than alphabetically thus offering a useful compass for less specialized readers for navigating the different disciplines covered and the way they relate to each other

2. New topics/areas included:

  • Advances in the "omics", new pathways, new therapies, and new areas such as the microbiome of the lung and the neurosympatheticlinkages between nerve and lung function
  • New vaccines targeting the mucosal response to infectious diseases

The work includes 94% new or revised articles:

  • 274 brand new chapters
  • 146 revised chapters from the previous edition

Main Audience

Academics, researchers and students at undergraduate level and above, as well as clinicians, researchers and all professionals in the fields of respiratory medicine and care seeking specific information on topics outside of their immediate area of expertise.
