Occupational and environmental respiratory disease
Respiratory disease is a common although under-diagnosed category of environment-and work-related disorders. OCCUPATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPIRATORY DISEASE is an authoritative reference for the diagnosis, management, and prevention of these diseases. It is comprehensive, addresses all aspects of disease management and follow up: diagnostic methods, specific industries, and causitative agents of concern; modern clinical management of specific disorders, and regulatory, administrative and public health issues. It includes coverage of the increasingly prevalent problem of environmental disorders, specific industries and causative agents, and the hot-button subjects of pulmonary impairment, disability, and compensation.
