About this book

A Clinical Guide to Occupational and Environmental Lung Diseases delivers a concise compendium to the diagnosis and management of occupational and environmental lung diseases, incorporating evidence-based guidelines where available. Each chapter provides an updated review and a practical approach to different occupational and environmental lung diseases.  With rapidly changing technology, new conditions and exposures will undoubtedly emerge. Clinicians need to remain vigilant about assessing the potential link between lung diseases and environmental exposures, and this book provides a practical guide to recognize, diagnose, and prevent occupational and environmental lung diseases.  Written for practicing clinicians including internists, pulmonologists, and primary care providers, as well as industrial hygienists and environmental regulators, A Clinical Guide to Occupational and Environmental Lung Diseases is a timely and important new volume and an invaluable contribution to the literature.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book offers clinical personnel and researchers the latest developments in respiratory care. The book is timely, covering some of the most hotly debated topics in the field … . Ostensibly, this book is written for practicing clinicians … . I would add toxicologists and air pollution specialists to the list of experts who could benefit. … this book is devoted to ongoing developments and controversies affecting patient diagnosis and management, making it essential reading for others needing to stay abreast of these developments.” (J. Thomas Pierce, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2013)
