  • Book

  • April 2023
  • Elsevier Health Science
  • ID: 4414277
With an emphasis on the pathophysiologic basis of pulmonary disease, Principles of Pulmonary Medicine, 7th Edition, by Drs. Steven E Weinberger, Barbara A Cockrill, and Jess Mandel, provides a superbly illustrated introduction to this fast-changing field. This essential text employs a concise and understandable approach, integrating clinical topics with underlying physiologic, pathophysiologic, and basic science concepts critical for medical students, trainees, and those looking for a practical update on both acute and chronic pulmonary diseases

- Offers access to extensive online resources, including author commentaries, video clips, audio recordings of lung sounds, and 200 case-based self-assessment questions - covering topics including pulmonary function tests, physiologic data, and arterial blood gas testing and modeled after the USMLE exam.

- Discusses therapeutic strategies, including the available evidence for assessing relative benefits, harms, and costs, where appropriate. - Provides an excellent visual basis for understanding and interpreting pulmonary disease with easy-to-understand anatomic illustrations and accompanying radiologic and pathophysiologic images. - Covers all that's new in the field, including new CT lung cancer screening guidelines; new concepts in the pathogenesis of asthma, interstitial lung disease, and other pulmonary diseases; and evolving therapies for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and advanced lung cancer.

- Features updated information on the expanded use of advanced interventional pulmonology (bronchoscopic) procedures, improvements in precision treatment of lung tumors based on genetic profiles, and new and emerging infections with respiratory involvement.

- Covers hot topics such as lung tumor treatment, including use of genetic markers and immunotherapy; lung cancer screening reflecting the latest guidelines on who, how, and when to screen; and newer bronchoscopic procedures, such as navigational bronchoscopy.

- Expert ConsultT eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

Steven E. Weinberger Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, American College of Physicians; Adjunct Professor of Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.. Dr. Steven Weinberger is a very esteemed pulmonologist and is Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Emeritus of the American College of Physicians as well as Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and formerly Senior Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He's recently retired from full-time teaching but remains very actively involved in the field. As on prior editions Dr. Weinberger will have primary responsibility for reviewing and editing all chapters and will share chapter updating with Drs. Cockrill and Mandel, both of whom are also well respected and active speakers in the subspeciality of pulmonology. Barbara A. Cockrill Pulmonary Vascular Disease Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital; Harold Amos Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.
