Doody's Review ServiceReviewer:
Description: This is the third edition of a well-illustrated self-study book with a wealth of clinical material on pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. The question and answer format is well designed to be a challenging experience for readers. The new topics in sleep medicine and the newly added clinical material and questions in critical care are excellent. The book fits well in white coat pockets and is an excellent resource for consultants in the pulmonary and critical care unit to help in the discussion of cases.
Purpose: This clinically oriented book is well designed to help clinicians and trainees in pulmonary medicine. It will attract readers at all levels and practically everyone who reads it will come away with key clinical points that will help them in practice.
Audience: Specialists in pulmonary and critical care and internal medicine, nurses, respiratory therapists, and anyone who's actively involved in taking care of patients with pulmonary disorders are the intended audience. Residents and fellows preparing for examination will find this clinical format very useful.
Assessment: This book has a wealth of clinical material with excellent background on medical history and physical examination findings. The images are superb and include supporting illustrations, graphs, and pulmonary function data that will serve as excellent review material. The questions and clinical contents are challenging; indeed readers will find the book full of suspense as they try to assure themselves of their knowledge. Reading this book may remind readers of patients with challenging cases they have treated in the past.
