Synopsis:

Respiratory problems are the most common reason for GP consultation and emergency medical admission to a hospital. This book responds to a perceived gap in GP training in respiratory issues, despite the fact that the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in primary care is a key competence for general practice. The book is wholly practical, incorporating the latest NICE guidelines, MRI images and diagrams, with ‘red flags’ and key take-away messages. A lack of onus on theory makes it more accessible, focusing on practical advice and processes. This allows not just for diagnosis and treatment, but effective patient management. A key chapter is dedicated to communication between primary and secondary care professionals as the boundaries between GP and nurse functions are increasingly blurring.
