Breath Sounds: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice 1st ed

This book offers up-to-date information on the recording and analysis of respiratory sounds that will assist in clinical routine. The opening sections deliver basic knowledge on aspects such as the physics of sound and sound transmission in the body, a clear understanding of which is key to good clinical practice. Current techniques of breath sound analysis are described, and the diagnostic impact of advances in the processing of lung sound signals is carefully explained. With the aid of audio files that are available online, detailed guidance is then provided on differentiation of normal and abnormal breath sounds and identification of the various sounds, including crackles, wheezes, other lung sounds, cough sounds, and sounds of extrathoracic origin. The book is of high educational value and represents an excellent learning tool at pre- and postgraduate levels. It will also appeal to researchers as it provides comprehensive summaries of knowledge in particular research fields. The editors bring high-level expertise to the subject, including membership of the European Respiratory Society Task Force on the standardization of categories and nomenclature for breath sounds.

Lung Disease Associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis 1st ed

This comprehensive text expounds the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of lung disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disease that primarily affects joints. Recent advances in therapy for RA provide the benefit of achieving a better outcome in patients with arthritis, and a large number of reports on RA are now available. Moreover, the American College of Rheumatology and the European League Against Rheumatism have proposed guidelines and recommendations for management of RA patients. Therefore, clinicians around the world can adequately understand how to manage patients who have joint symptoms in RA. At the same time, however, the management of RA patients who have lung problems has not been disseminated sufficiently, although lung disease is a common complication in approximately 30–40 %  of patients with RA. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of tangible evidence regarding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of lung disease associated with RA.

Each expert author in this book elucidates the current status of knowledge about lung disease in RA and the management of RA patients with lung diseases.  Thus this valuable collection benefits not only rheumatologists but also respirologists, radiologists, pathologists, general practitioners, and medical staff such as nurses who are involved in the management of RA.
