lmonary Infection: An Atlas of Investigation and Management

Taking a visual approach, Pulmonary Infection: An Atlas of Investigation and Diagnosis presents ready-to-use information in an easily accessible format. With coverage ranging from tuberculosis, a much-studied disorder which continues to spread in urban communities around the world, to the lung infections acquired in the course of hospitalization and treatment, the atlas provides a wide-angle view of pulmonary infection. Drawing on the illustrative resources of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, the editors have selected graphic images that supply examples of rare and typical manifestations of these disorders. Each chapter covers etiology, presentation, investigations, and therapy and includes a bulleted list of conclusions. The large number of illustrations accompanied by detailed captions make it a visual guide to respiratory infection.
