Editorial Reviews

Respiratory Care
...a valuable resource for any practitioner dealing with patients suspected of having...extra—esophageal manifestations of GERD." —Practical Gastroenterology "This book is mandatory reading for anyone involved in the treatment of pulmonary diseases, as well as those with an interest in esophageal diseases. The caliber of the manuscripts is superior, and the compilation of all of these chapters into one book makes for a substantially better understanding of the relationships between gastroesophageal disease and airways disease.
Booknews
For primary care physicians and specialists, reviews the current state of understanding of the gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and its increasingly recognized role in diseases of both the upper and lower airway. The topics include embryological origins of the relationship between the two diseases, GERD as a major factor in chronic cough, its prevalence in asthma, medical and surgical treatment, children and adolescents, respiratory complications in infants, oral manifestations, and the geriatric and the pregnant patient. The information is not yet widely available either in the professional literature or in textbooks on asthma and respiratory diseases. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
