Diagnosis and Treatment of Symptoms of the Respiratory Tract

Front Cover
Wiley, Oct 7, 1997 - Medical - 637 pages
Although respiratory symptoms are among the most common reasons for which patients seek medical care, this is the first book that discusses the management of all these symptoms in a thorough and systematic manner. Prior references have been disease-oriented rather than symptom oriented - and perhaps less practically useful as a result. After all, patients complain of symptoms, not diseases.

/dBy utilizing what has been learned about managing cough and dyspnea, and applying a consistent six-step management strategy to other respiratory symptoms, this book is sure to be of on-going clinical value. It is quite comprehensive, covering the diagnosis and effective treatment of chest pain, cough dyspnea, hemoptysis, wheeze, nasal obstruction/rhinorrhea/postnasal drip, hoarseness, sneeze, epistaxis, hiccough, facial pain and headache, snoring, anosmia, halitosis, sore throat and globus sensation.
