This book explores the more common respiratory disorders that are seen both in the hospital sector and in primary care. It provides the reader with essential information about the diseases and conditions and gives details of care management and treatment options. Each chapter is useful as a stand-alone text. This is an extremely timely text as there is a growing burden on health care services, the economy, and on individual patients and their carers as a result of respiratory disorders. In the United Kingdom one in five deaths occurs as the result of respiratory disease, with more deaths occurring from this group of disease than from coronary heart disease or non-respiratory cancers. It is estimated that around one in eight admissions to the acute sector are as a consequence of respiratory disorders as too are many consultations and house-calls in primary care.
