Sound, didactic, clinical advice from 150 clinicians and experts in pulmonary medicine throughout the world forms a wealth of scientific information in respiratory medicine. The text highlights the difficulties that can be encountered in managing symptoms, including investigation of cough, haemoptysis and dyspnoea and examines "paediatric" conditions most relevant to adult practice, developmental abnormalities and childhood cystic fibrosis and asthma.
