Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Appropriate to the intense proliferation of research and publications in the last few decades for this major health problem, the editors of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease have produced a comprehensive textbook that spans the basic and clinical science of COPD. This substantial tome includes 912 pages, 243 illustrations, and 70 chapters authored by an international cadre of contributors...

The succinct writing style, judicious use of complementary illustrations, and well-focused references achieve the desired breadth without compromising sufficient depth or readability...

Section 3 focuses on cellular physiology and inflammation. This section exemplifies the strength of this textbook, digesting a large body of developing science into comprehensible synopses of the disease processes that form the basis for therapeutic opportunities...

In summary, the editors and authors of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease have achieved their goal by creating a current textbook covering many facets of this complex disorder. In parallel with the field of COPD, the textbook has its strength in the scientific underpinnings of airway and lung physiology and advances in the understanding of cellular and physiological derangements." - Richard A. Mularski (MD, MSHS, MRC), JAMA, September 2007

“The strength of the book lies in the more than 100 authors…recognized worldwide. Most of the chapters are excellent reviews and are carefully referenced.”
New England Journal of Medicine

Mularski for John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Fishbein Fellow Books and Media Reviews Section Editor, JAMA

“This book does an outstanding job of outlining the major aspects of COPD. Topics are organized logically and each chapter has ample references…highlighting important concepts."
Doodys Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Lazar, MD (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: As the morbidity related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) increases, medical books must address the many facets of this disease. This one provides a clear, comprehensive review, using highly specific chapters to organize each aspect of the disease. Although most illustrations and graphs are grayscale, they favorably complement the text. Finally, a special section incorporates high quality photomicrographs related to COPD.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of COPD.
Audience: The four editors are leaders in the study of COPD. Each chapter is written by a nationally or internationally recognized expert. This book will appeal to a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals including nurses, respiratory therapists, home care providers, physicians-in-training, primary care physicians, and pulmonary specialists.
Features: Section 1 (9 chapters) introduces COPD, providing an overview of physiology. Section 2 (7 chapters) describes clinical conditions which can overlap with COPD. Section 3 describes basic science related to COPD. The remaining 41 chapters (sections 4-7) cover the pathogenesis, treatment, and other diseases which impact COPD. The book progresses logically through chapters and sections. The organization allows readers to easily grasp concepts related to COPD. For example, the chapter on sleep in COPD patients improves awareness of this important, yet under-recognized, area.
Assessment: This book does an outstanding job of outlining the major aspects of COPD, including its physiology, pathogenesis, complications, and treatment options. Topics are organized logically and each chapter has ample references, graphs, and diagrams highlighting important concepts. The only deficiency is that it neglects to address the interrelationship between COPD and other common diseases (coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, depression, etc.). Exploring the associations between COPD and other diseases in future editions might be warranted.
