From the common cold to many life-threatening conditions such as tuberculosis, infectious disease of the respiratory tract is a widespread problem. This text provides a complete and highly illustrated dossier of information and practical advice on both pathogens and major syndromes. It also includes coverage of key support and highly specialized areas such as pediatrics, foreign travel, and intensive care management. Care of patients with major respiratory infections ideally involves coordinated multidisciplinary teamwork. Such teams are managed by physicians with a breadth of knowledge spanning numerous specialties that include infectious disease, radiology, microbiology, surgery, intensive care, thoracic medicine and tropical medicine. Culling expertise from these fields, this text forms a comprehensive and invaluable reference for all involved in the care and diagnosis of respiratory infection.
