horoughly updated and reorganised, the Third Edition of this volume is the most comprehensive clinical reference on fungal diseases of the lung. The book provides authoritative information on all pulmonary fungal diseases seen in current practice and on the diagnostic tests and therapies that are now available. The Third Edition presents complete information on new antifungal agents, including oral and intravenous fluconazole, oral itraconazole, and lipid formulations of amphotericin-B. Chapters on specific diseases follow a new, more user-friendly structure: epidemiology and ecology of the fungus; pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of the disease; and treatment in normal, immunocompromised, and HIV-infected hosts. All chapters include detailed algorithms for treatment and prevention. Illustrations show morphology of each organism, histopathology, and characteristic chest radiographs

The Lung Circulation, Volume 2: Pathologic Physiology and Therapy of Diseases considers the reactions of various cardiovascular and bronchopulmonary drugs for certain lung-related diseases. This book is organized into three sections encompassing 15 chapters that also cover the etiology of acute cardiopulmonary diseases and chronic pulmonary hypertension. The first section reviews the benefits of five pulmonary treatment options, including musculotropic vasodilators and vasoconstrictors; general anesthetics and adjuvants; antitussives, expectorants, and antiallergens; Digitalis, glycosides, and quinidine; and medical and surgical procedures. The second section describes the pathologic physiology and pathogenesis of some acute cardiopulmonary diseases, such as acute injuries, systemic shock, acute pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, and other localized pulmonary diseases. The third section surveys numerous studies on the chronic pulmonary hypertension. This book is directed toward pulmonologists.

Pathological examination forms a key element in the final diagnosis of a variety of malignant and non-malignant respiratory disorders, and directs treatment. Research has contributed to important advances in the pathological diagnosis of these respiratory disorders. This book is a complete overview of diagnostic procedures and pathological examination data, which helps support the clinician in the decision-making process. This Monograph covers the pathology of neoplastic diseases, infections, obstructive and interstitial lung diseases, and pulmonary manifestations of systemic diseases, with al.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the current understanding of the organization of endogenous lung stem and progenitor cell compartments during fetal lung development, postnatal lung growth and in adulthood. Progressing stage by stage, the chapters on fetal lung development emphasize the integrated role of epithelial, stromal, vascular and neural cell elements in building a functional lung, while the subsequent chapters on adult lung regeneration describe the nature and properties of adult lung stem/progenitor cells distributed along the proximal-distal axis of the airway tree. The chapters on regulation of lung regeneration and repair discuss how regenerative cells interact with their niche microenvironment and how regulation of lung regeneration and repair in the steady state and following injury recapitulates ontogeny. And, lastly, the chapters on cellular therapies for lung disease and bioengineering the lung focus on promising emerging therapies and approaches in lung regenerative medicine. The scope of this volume of the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine series focuses on exploring the topic of building and rebuilding the lung from a cellular rather than a molecular perspective. Thus, the section on cellular therapies does not include extensive coverage of each of the numerous lung diseases, including cancer, which could be amenable to stem cell-based therapies, although the final chapter does include some discussion on the future prospects and challenges. All of the contributors are working on the cutting edge of the lung stem cell field, making this book essential reading for those with an interest in the field of lung stem cell biology and the potential role of cellular therapies and tissue bioengineering approaches in lung regenerative medicine, including biomedical scientists, graduate students, post-graduate researchers and respiratory clinicians.

Anesthesia and the Lung 1992 presents recent advances in the diagnosis, pre-, intra-, and postoperative anesthetic management of patients with lung disease, presenting for pulmonary and non-pulmonary surgery. It also deals with ventilation-perfusion issues, the lung as a metabolic organ, the effects of anesthesia on pulmonary mechanics and pulmonary blood flow. In addition, there are chapters that focus on hypoxia; regional differences in the lung; pulmonary surfactant; recent advances in the understanding of pulmonary edema; high altitude disease; anesthesia and the control of breathing; recent development in oximetry; instrumentation designed to measure pulmonary oxygen tension, pO2 and pCO2 transcutaneously; differential lung ventilation; reactive airways; septic shock; the adult respiratory distress syndrome and numerous aspects of ventilatory support.
