Lung and airway diseases are extremely common, and are a frequent cause of referral and admission to hospital. A bewildering array of tests are now available for investigating lung diseases - some of which can be performed in general practice, but most of which will be carried out in hospital. This book is designed to help doctors and nurses explain respiratory diseases, tests and treatments to patients with the aid of simple pictures.
