Palliative Care in Respiratory Disease
Edited by Claudia Bausewein, David C. Currow and Miriam J. Johnson
Palliative care aims to optimise function and to enhance quality of life for patients with serious and life-limiting illnesses. It focuses on reducing the burden of symptoms, and supporting patients and caregivers. This Monograph provides a comprehensive overview of palliative care in respiratory disease, including coverage of policy variations around the world, epidemiology of advanced respiratory disease, access to palliative care and the need for care in a range of chronic respiratory diseases from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis to lung cancer and cystic fibrosis. There are detailed sections on breathlessness, focusing on symptom definition, patient and caregiver experiences, physiological mechanisms, measurement and management; and on care for patients with advance disease who are in the terminal phases of their illness.
COPD and Comorbidity
Edited by Klaus F. Rabe, Jadwiga A. Wedzicha and Emiel F.M. Wouters
COPD is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality, and its course is complicated by co-existing comorbidities that worsen prognosis. Understanding the importance of comorbidity and multiple comorbidities in COPD is important in patient assessment and management planning. This Monograph is the first comprehensive collection of up-to-date articles on COPD comorbidity. It includes chapters on epidemiology, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, psychological disease and infection, and covers the importance of including comorbidity in COPD treatment guidelines, as well as the ways in which comorbidity influences clinical COPD management. This Monograph will be of interest to clinicians, healthcare professionals, and those researching this important area.
