A book for patients: lung structure and function; nature of emphysema and chronic bronchitis; roles of smoking and air pollution; treatment, including use of nebulizers, postural drainage, respirators, oxygen, and surgery; advice for daily life.
Should be a useful aid in care of these patients; unfortunately written in frequently stiff, wordy prose. A fair price for a book of this quality.
