The Washington Manual Pulmonary Medicine Subspecialty Consult

Front Cover
Adrian Shifren
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006 - Medical - 284 pages

Written by residents, fellows, and attending physicians, this handbook is ideal for residents called on to do an inpatient consult, for students working on an inpatient medicine service, and for specialists seeking information on pulmonology and general internal medicine management. The book covers inpatient and outpatient approaches, symptoms and diseases, and acute and chronic problems with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualŪ of Medical Therapeutics.

Chapters cover pulmonary function testing, respiratory failure, hemoptysis, solitary pulmonary nodule, community-acquired pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, and much more. Coverage includes a section on the appropriate conduct and approach of a medical consultant and reviews of selected clinical trials.

The Washington ManualŪ is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University.
