Respiratory Disease, the latest volume in the "Treatment in Clinical Medicine" series, is in two parts: the first reviews the background to each of the main respiratory diseases with particular emphasis on management and treatment. The second reviews the main drugs used in respiratory practice in more detail and combines a pharmacological appraisal with a more personal assessment of their role and value in treatment. Practical aspects of management are emphasised. Where uncertainty exists the authors have described their own practice. The book aims to fill the gap which exists between textbooks of respiratory medicine, where there is often insufficient space to cover treatment in detail, and pharmacological textbooks, which are not concerned with practical management problems. It is intended for respiratory physicians, general physicians and senior medical students, and will provide useful background information for researchers entering the the field
