Description

Geriatric Chest Disease presents a guide to the management of chest disease in the elderly. It discusses the treatment and multiple pathology of the said disease. It addresses the normal changes in the aging lung. Some of the topics covered in the book are the symptoms of dyspnoea; cough; haemoptysis; the physical signs of diffuse airways obstruction; bronchography; bronchial carcinoma; the pneumonias; pulmonary tuberculosis; pulmonary thrombo-embolic disease; pleural effusion; fungal infection; and systemic lupus erythematosus. The symptomatic management of fractured ribs and hiatus hernia are covered. The respiratory disease associated with other systemic diseases is discussed. The text describes the adverse effects of drugs. A study of the exercise ventilation, heart-rate and electrocardiogram is presented. A chapter is devoted to the arterial blood gases and rheumatoid disease. Another section focuses on the functional effects and treatment of diffuse fibrosing alveolitis. The book can provide useful information to scientists, doctors, students, and researchers.
