    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.

    Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
    Edited by Ulrich Costabel, Bruno Crestani and Athol U. Wells
    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a steadily progressive and ultimately fatal disease of unknown origin. Recent years have seen advances in our understanding of IPF and a number of guidelines have been published. But many questions remain unanswered, particularly surrounding probable versus definite IPF. This Monograph aims to discuss the latest achievements in IPF, and covers key diagnostic issues, staging of the disease, complications and comorbidities, treatment, unmet patient needs and perspectives for the future. This book will be of interest to all clinicians and researchers in this area.
