Details

The textbook “Paediatric Pulmonary Function Testing: Indications and Interpretation” is a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the latest lung function techniques for infants and children addressed to paediatric respiratory medical practitioners. Experienced European and North American authorities in the field of pediatric pulmonology provide an essential tool for fellows, paediatricians and paediatric pulmonologists caring for patients with pulmonary diseases.

This book is extensive, comprehensive and practical for the clinical setting as it:
•Covers all lung function tests with extended analysis of reference equations and Z-score evaluation
•Provides practical guidance on the interpretation of functional pulmonary tests and evaluation examples, demonstrating what information is critical for everyday clinical application
•Introduces novel techniques such as ventilation inhomogeneity, while details such as exhaled nitric oxide and exhaled breath condensates are comprehensively analysed
•Includes indications and interpretations of analyses of blood gases, hemoglobin saturation, capnography and acid-base balance
•Contains a chapter on the selection and use of each pulmonary function test as applied in the clinical investigation of patients with respiratory problems

Index

“When the experience meets the knowledge and extraordinary ability for teaching of an author that is been characterized through the years from his satisfaction to transmit the academic light, the result is a book like the one that Dr. Charis Katsardis has prepared and offered to the young generation of medical students and doctors, paediatric residences and expert pulmonologists. Moreover, the participation of the remarkable co-authors highly contributes to the above successful result. It is a well written and easy to “uptake” textbook on “Paediatric Pulmonary function testing- Indications and interpretation.” It passes you from Physiology to Diagnosis, Laboratory Investigation and Therapy using a didactic interpretation of high professionalism. Excellent contribution to science. BRAVO!” - Michael Koutsilieris, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Experimental Physiology, Medical School, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens
