  • First major evidence-based text in adult respiratory medicine

Compiled by specialists from the Cochrane Collaboration Airways Management Group, Evidence-based Respiratory Medicine is the first major evidence-based text in adult respiratory medicine.

Providing a comprehensive summary of the best treatments for the most important respiratory diseases, some of the world's leading physicians review the evidence for a broad range of treatments using evidence-based principles. Essential information is presented in an easy-to-understand format, with the most important clinical implications summarised in each chapter.

Evidence-based Respiratory Medicine tackles the big clinical questions in diagnosis and treatment, presenting treatment options which take into account the individual patient's needs.

Evidence-Based Series: Evidence-based Respiratory Medicine, part of the acclaimed series BMJ Evidence-based medicine textbooks that have revolutionised clinical medicine literature, comes with a fully searchable CD-ROM of the whole text.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
