20 Common Problems in Respiratory Disorders
William Hueston
0071375260
Jan 2002
Paperback
·
 
Review
Doody's : "The book is logically divided into sections dealing with anatomic location of disease, as well as the acute and chronic nature of the illness. Screening and prevention are stressed, along with diagnosis and treatment. Charts and tables are efficiently used, and algorithms are logical and easy to follow. Those sections dealing with emergency management of respiratory illness are particularly well done." "This short work will be quite beneficial not only as a quick reference for busy practitioners, but as a review for certification exams. Its size allows it to be authoritative without being overly burdensome with details. Its readability will appreciated by all."

This book focuses on the common respiratory problems seen in primary care practices....

It provides the learner with clinical and case research information and encourages him/her to apply that information to their patient?s needs on an individualized basis, rather than employing a ?cook book? approach to treatment.

Review
REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITIONS:

"The Egan's manual for respiratory therapy is the most beneficial learning tool and reference manual that I have come across in all of my career. The information in this book is not only easy to understand but layed out in a manner that makes finding what you need an easy task. It gives a thorough review of all the important clinical data and physical characteristics needed to become a competent practitioner... I would recommend this book as a reference tool to any student pursuing a career as a nurse, respiratory therapist, or physician. While this book may apply specific emphasis to the respiratory related field, it will reinforce your nursing or medicinal background by examining disease processes from a cardiopulmonary standpoint. This book has been a valuable learning tool and greatly...

The Germ Freak's Guide to Outwitting Colds and Flu: Guerilla Tactics to Keep Yourself Healthy at Home, at Work and in the World
Allison Janse
0757303277
January 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Freelance writer, editor and confessed "germ freak" Janse takes readers on a frequently funny tour through the germ-ridden underbellies of life—from health club showers to hotel suites—dishing the dirt, as it were, on what we're likely to "catch" where. Some of her advice seems panicky, like the suggestion to exit a public restroom stall immediately after flushing, since "fecal matter" can fly 20 feet into the air when flushed ("Better to Flush and Rush than Feel the Gush"). But Janse also imparts some everyday useful information, such as the fact that loofah sponges breed deadly bacteria (bleach them weekly) and that pricey vegetable washes aren't as good as hot water and a scrub brush for removing pesticides. Still, while Janse's handbook is thorough and witty, its audience may be limited. Much of...

Breathing Free: The Revolutionary 5-Day Program to Heal Asthma, Emphysema, Bronchitis, and Other Respiratory Ailments
Teresa Hale

January 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Asthma kills 6,000 people a year. Respiratory illnesses affect millions more. According to Teresa Hale, asthmatics and others with respiratory illnesses are breathing wrong. "We have been led to believe that deep breathing is good for us because it increases our oxygen intake. In fact, the reverse is true. The more we breathe, the less oxygen actually reaches the cells of our bodies," says Hale in Breathing Free: The Revolutionary 5-Day Program to Heal Asthma, Emphysema, Bronchitis, and Other Respiratory Ailments. Her breathing program, Breath Connection, teaches you to change your breathing patterns so that you won't need to wheeze, breathe heavily, or take gulps of air after exertion. Hale promises that five days on this program will reduce your need for medications, and regular practice often increases metabolism and...

From Booklist
More than 1,000 entries define and explain causes of asthma and other respiratory diseases and disorders. Information on treatment protocols, medications, research, and prevention is given, as are definitions of key related health terms. Entries for professional and nonprofit organizations are also included.Most definitions are very short, often just a phrase or a sentence. In one exception, the Asthma entry runs several pages and is nicely organized by subtopics such as "Symptoms and Signs of an Asthma Attack" and "Medications for Asthma." Entries for other respiratory diseases are several paragraphs long and, although the basics are covered, are not nearly as comprehensive as the asthma article. Some articles are accompanied by statistical charts and graphs. There are also tables listing things such as the weeds...
