Our understanding of the relationship between genetics and pulmonary disorders is still developing. In 1989 cloning of the gene that, when mutated, causes Cystic Fibrosis marked a great advance in the study of genetic diseases. Yet, over a decade later, understanding of how this genetic defect leads to colonization by bacteria and inflammation in the lung remains elusive. This is proving to be an engaging area of investigation for many medical professionals, with research into the effects of these genetic variations on various diseases in progress. Genetics for Pulmonologists provides an overview of lung diseases for which the genetic defect has been defined as of June 2001. It is an easy-to-use manual with concise reviews of genetic diseases that a pulmonologist might encounter.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a devastating disease and although the virus would appear to have been contained, it is clear that the impact it has had around the world, and could have again in the future, is immense. Hong Kong has been significantly impacted in the recent SARS outbreak, and clinicians and researchers alike have gained a lot of experience in dealing with the disease at short notice. This new book aims to be a state-of-the art update on SARS, with particular reference to imaging, which plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of patients with the disease (it is widely accepted that SARS patients cannot be managed without imaging and it is included in the WHO’s own list of diagnostic criteria for the disease). The book will also provide a perspective on the treatment and experience of the disease outside Hong Kong.
More than 30 million Americans struggle with some form of chronic breathing disorder. Five percent of adults and 10 percent of children in the United States suffer from asthma, which also causes more than 5,000 deaths each year (many of which are of children). Pneumonia and flu combined are the sixth leading cause of death in America today. The Encyclopedia of Asthma and Respiratory Disorders provides a comprehensive guide to these serious conditions. More than 1,100 detailed entries cover all forms of asthma, respiratory disorders, and related conditions, as well as their symptoms and causes; current research, treatment, and drugs; key health terms and definitions; and helpful organizations. Easy-to-follow tables, charts, and diagrams provide up-to-date facts and figures. Extensive appendixes include lists of helpful organizations concerned with asthma and respiratory disorders; tips for travelers with allergies or asthma; an excerpt from Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health; a list of alternative treatments and remedies for respiratory disorders; and much more. The Encyclopedia of Asthma and Respiratory Disorders is an invaluable resource for those suffering from asthma or a respiratory disorder, for their families, and anyone who wants to learn more about respiratory disorders.
