Respiratory care is undergoing a period of major change as it cautiously begins to embrace digital transformation. Catalysed by the need for remote consultation in the pandemic, time-honoured approaches to delivering care are now being challenged by technology-based initiatives. This Monograph deftly guides the reader through the potential benefits and pitfalls of such change, breaking the discussion down into three areas: technological opportunities and regulatory challenges; social benefits, challenges and implications; exemplars of digital healthcare. Each chapter reviews contemporary literature and considers not "if" but "how" a digital respiratory future can provide optimal care. The result is an authoritative, balanced guide to developing digital respiratory health.
