Respiratory disease affects millions of people worldwide. It is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity, significantly impacting upon the lives of both patients and their families. Respiratory disease places huge financial burdens on healthcare providers, and is managed in a variety of settings, including domiciliary, primary, secondary and tertiary care settings.
The Oxford Handbook of Respiratory Nursing offers the reader a systematic account of the main respiratory diseases found in adults, and covers the assessment, diagnosis, and nursing management of these diseases. It also covers pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies, and discusses the role of the multidisciplinary respiratory team. The book highlights the multiple care needs of respiratory patients and addresses both physical and psychosocial concerns.
The book includes many illustrations and diagrams to guide the reader, along with references to national and international disease-specific guidelines, patient and health professional charities, and helplines.
The book is clearly laid out, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages are included for the reader, so that notes, observations, and local protocols can be included, thereby individualizing the Handbook.
Written by practising nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Respiratory Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for all health care professionals who are involved in the care of respiratory patients.
