This new edition provides paediatricians and pulmonologists with the latest advances in the diagnosis and management of respiratory disorders in children.

Divided into nine sections, the book begins with an overview of anatomy and physiology and guidance on history taking and examination. The following sections cover different types of pulmonary disorders – infections, asthma, non-infectious diseases, congenital malformations, pleural diseases, and neoplasms. The final chapters detail intensive care and therapeutics such as airway clearance techniques, oxygen and aerosol therapy, and pharmacology.

The third edition of this comprehensive text has been fully revised and features new topics, as well as clinical photographs, diagrams and algorithms to enhance learning.
