About the Authors
  • From the common cold to many life-threatening conditions such as tuberculosis, infectious disease of the respiratory tract is a widespread problem. This text provides a complete and highly illustrated dossier of information and practical advice on both pathogens and major syndromes. It also includes coverage of key support and highly specialized areas such as pediatrics, foreign travel, and intensive care management. Care of patients with major respiratory infections ideally involves coordinated multidisciplinary teamwork. Such teams are managed by physicians with a breadth of knowledge spanning numerous specialties that include infectious disease, radiology, microbiology, surgery, intensive care, thoracic medicine and tropical medicine. Culling expertise from these fields, this text forms a comprehensive and invaluable reference for all involved in the care and diagnosis of respiratory infection.

    • Well integrated, comprehensive and highly illustrated reference resource
    • Up to date international, multidisciplinary contributions
    • Includes specific coverage of support systems and special cases

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book will be a valuable addition to the reference section of any medical library, large or small. ...its target audience is physicians, it will also be useful to medical students and residents. It is a very useful work and highly recommended." E-Streams

    "The quality of radiographs is excellent...a worthwhile purchase for the respirologist or infectious-diseases consultant with an interest in pneumonia." Michael E. Ellis, New England Journal of Medicine

    "Infectious Diseases of the Respiratory Tract mixes a traditional and a novel approach to this subject. The traditional approach is reflected in the discussion of diagnostic methods, major respiratory tract pathogens, and respiratory tract syndromes. The novel approach is to include a variety of topics such as respiratory tract infections associated with foreign travel, miscellaneous agents of pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infections, and pulmonary infections in patients with cystic fibrosis. The discussion of pneumonia due to the major respiratory tract pathogens is generally good. The quality of the radiographs is excellent. ...a worthwhile purchase for the respirologist or infectious-diseases consultant with an interest in pneumonia." Thomas Marrie, M.D., The New England Journal of Medicine

    "Chapters are well referenced, often with over 200 citations each. The chapters regarding new diagnostic methods and tests are very current. The book has an international style that is enjoyable and useful. ...the writing is excellent...." Robert L. Danner, MD; Respiratory Care
