Editorial Reviews


"The book is logically divided into sections dealing with anatomic location of disease, as well as the acute and chronic nature of the illness. Screening and prevention are stressed, along with diagnosis and treatment. Charts and tables are efficiently used, and algorithms are logical and easy to follow. Those sections dealing with emergency management of respiratory illness are particularly well done." "This short work will be quite beneficial not only as a quick reference for busy practitioners, but as a review for certification exams. Its size allows it to be authoritative without being overly burdensome with details. Its readability will appreciated by all." (Doody's 2002-09-09)
