This concise and didactic handbook complements the 'Emergencies' section of the "Oxford Handbook of Respiratory Medicine."

Respiratory disease is the most common illness responsible for an emergency admission to hospital and, as such, requires rapid and effective management. The first and second sections of this handbook are symptom-based, exploring assessment, investigation and differential diagnoses. The third section is disease-based and explains how to manage the diagnoses covered in section one and two. The fourth section addresses practical issues from interpreting tests to practical procedures and the fifth section covers investigations.
