Book Description :

Using illustrative case examples, this book thoroughly reviews similarities and differences between asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the overlap syndrome. It is important to highlight the distinctions because these commonly encountered conditions in respiratory and primary care share many similarities but have important differences often mistaken for each other. This can have serious implications for treatment, particularly as new treatments are targeted at specific phenotypes of the diseases. This practical guide shows how to distinguish between the diseases on a pathological and clinical basis so that appropriate management and treatment may be pursued.

Book Description :

This volume provides an overview of exacerbation models of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Within this wide field the book focuses on experimental systems that mimic pathobiological processes likely to be critical in exacerbations of these conditions. To generate insight into the mechanisms of exacerbation of pulmonary disease and to promote the discovery of future treatments, both animal models and human experimental models are described. For this update some of the most eminent scientists within the area of pulmonology could be recruited to share their knowledge of this evolving field of human medicine. Models of Exacerbations in Asthma and COPD will be of great interest to pulmonologists, allergologists, specialists in internal medicine and critical care, as well as to microbiologists, infectiologists and pharmacologists studying the response to respiratory infections.

Book Description :

Asthma, allergy and chronic obstructive lung disease are common throughout the world and are increasing in incidence, particularly in the developing world. This volume provides a state-of-the-art account of the identification of new targets and the development of new therapies for these conditions. Some 40 chapters by clinical academics and senior members of the pharmaceutical industry detail the latest breakthroughs in research and development. In asthma, a promising approach is the use of therapy directed against specific Th2 responses through biological antagonists of IL-5, IL-4 and IL-13. There have also been major advances in our understanding of innate immune responses to pathogen-associated molecular patterns, and in the area of Toll-like receptors. Up to date and comprehensive, this book will be of particular relevance to those working in the pharmaceutical industry (in preclinical research and clinical development), to academic researchers in the field of respiratory medicine, and to respiratory health care specialists.

Book Description :

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and bronchial asthma are commonly seen respiratory diseases that severely influence a patient's health and quality of life. Throughout the centuries, Chinese medical doctors have recognized the importance of these diseases and have accumulated rich clinical experience and a wealth of practical information. Using holistic methods Chinese medicine is able to help restore normal function to respiratory system, inhibit inflammatory cells and mediators, decrease airway hyper-reactivity and pulmonary hypertension, improve pulmonary ventilation function and blood circulation, and adjust organic immunity. Our editorial board has refined and summarized the available literature on clinical diagnosis and treatment by referencing the clinical experience of doctors past and present and citing current research results. This book is an essential handbook for those treating COPD and bronchial asthma. A part of the comprehensive series The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine, this book aims to guide the reader through the complexity of clinical practice. Inside are detailed discussions on the clinical experience of renowned physicians from ancient and modern times that will enable the practitioner to become more adept at accurately diagnosing and effectively treating COPD and bronchial asthma.

Book Description :

Among the different respiratory diseases that afflict humans, there are three of which can be said to be in the front line, since they are conditions of the respiratory system that occur with unusual frequency and carry high social and economic costs, but are not the prevalence of others may be unknown, even much more serious, but whose evolution over time is significantly slow.This work will focus on the causes, symptoms, prevention, and treatment of influenza, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); in order to publicize different aspects of each of them, considering the importance of patients understanding the evolution of the disease, its different symptoms and the proper treatment of them.Since the dawn of humanity, the human being has been forced to live with countless viruses that cause different affections to the respiratory system, practically every year there are different mutations from them (viruses ), which makes their control very difficult. Is a reality seasonal influenza, ie that which takes place at certain times of the year and that even though science h to learned to fight through vaccination to specific groups of the population, but with the aggravating from year to year a different strain must be produced, according to the evolution or resistance of the virus.In the case of asthma, a disease that develops due to genetic and environmental circumstances, where a very high percentage of the population is exposed to it, since it is basically an allergic reaction that reacts by inflaming the airways and causing difficulties for breathe.On the other hand, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, which originates from environmental issues and social practices, is one of the respiratory diseases that causes the most deaths worldwide; since it is a progressive disease and for which no cure has been found. The health systems of different nations have to incur enormous expenses to treat patients with COPD, a disease that in many cases makes people a burden on the state. Humanity is taking time to make adequate decisions regarding certain social activities that lead to the development of this serious disease. Science has proven endlessly that smoking is the main cause of it, but has not taken action on the matter by radically prohibiting the use of tobacco, it seems, that the taxes generated by this "vice" are the cause of that governments be benevolent with tobacco multinationals.Finally, as a patient who has been for more than a decade of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, I want to share with the readers of this work, my experiences for the proper management of it, both from the point of view of traditional medicine, as from the homeopathic perspective, considering the importance of our being able to cope with these conditions and thus have a better quality of life.

Book Description :

Breathing is so fundamental to life that the brain is hardwired so that when breathing is compromised for any reason, nothing else matters. Shortness of breath is an attention-getter, but when breathing problems become frequent, help is needed. Health care providers are there to help and prescribe medication that brings temporary relief, but many patients leave with unanswered questions about more permanent, long-lasting treatments or cures. This book guides respiratory patients toward having the most productive relationships with their doctors. A respiratory therapist (RRT), the author uses decades of clinical experience to outline how patients can be more active participants in their own medical care. With a better understanding of the right questions, more beneficial discussions with doctors will help fine-tune every individual's medical care plan.
