Although written primarily for trainees, this accessible text demonstrates how the skills learned in core clinical clerkships can be applied to all areas of respiratory medicine. Written specifically for respiratory physicians, Book reflects current knowledge, research and practices in respiratory medicine and provides a unique insight into this rapidly expanding specialty.
The content of the book is arranged into three thematic parts: Airway management, Pathogenesis, and Diagnosis.
The Airway Management topic covers the basic parameters required in airway management (including essential anatomy). It then focuses on the assessment and management of common conditions affecting the airway, including asthma, COPD and anaphylaxis. The Pathogenesis topic covers a broad overview of respiratory disease covering how it develops, discusses diagnosis and pathology for commonly encountered complaints. Finally, Diagnosis covers investigations that may be used to establish a diagnosis and provides practical guidance on how best to communicate the results of these investigations.

“Crash Course Respiratory Medicine is an accessible book that provides trainees with a comprehensive understanding of respiratory physiology and pathology from the point of view of those who deal with patients every day… the authors have achieved their aim … to create a friendly and very readable book that will prove useful for students and junior doctors alike.”
The primary aim of this book is to improve understanding and clinical practice in respiratory medicine. It represents a multidisciplinary approach, integrating basic science with clinical practice. The text provides a coherent journey from basic science to clinical assessment and finally plasma pathology. It is the third volume in a series of books commissioned by the Centre for Trainee Education (CTE) in Respiratory Medicine and all three volumes can be purchased in one package.
