Atlas of Diffuse Lung Diseases

A Multidisciplinary Approach

Alessandra Cancellieri, Giorgia Dalpiaz

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 295

This atlas is designed as an easy-to-use reference guide that identifies and illustrates the key patterns of diffuse lung diseases observed on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and then documents in more detail the characteristics and appearances of the individual diseases, grouped on the basis of their prevalent pattern. A further feature of the book is its interdisciplinary nature: contributions from experts in various specialties are tightly interwoven throughout and many pathologic correlations are included. Less experienced readers will find that this atlas, with its wealth of figures and helpful color coding, steers them towards correct interpretation when confronted by the multiplicity and complexity of these diseases; those who are already experts, on the other hand, will benefit from the detailed coverage of individual diseases, which will deepen their understanding. At the end of the book, a graphically appealing and practice-oriented illustrated glossary with tips and tricks offers a further highly effective educational tool. Given the clinical spectrum of diseases covered, this atlas will prove invaluable for a wide range of healthcare workers, especially radiologists, pulmonologists, and pathologists.

Mitochondrial Function in Lung Health and Disease

Narasimham L. Parinandi, Viswanathan Natarajan

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 233

Mitochondria, often referred to as the "powerhouses" of the cell, generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by oxidative phosphorylation or OXPHOS, and maintain cellular homeostasis. In addition to generating ATP, mitochondria are involved in regulation of cell cycle, proliferation, free radical production, innate immune responses and apoptosis. Mitochondrial Function in Lung Health and Disease fills the current gap in the literature and outlines the growing clinical relevance of mitochondrial dysfunction. Currently, there is no overview on the role of mitochondria in pulmonary diseases and this volume focuses on the mitochondrial metabolism, redox signaling, and mechanisms of mitochondrial pathways in lung injury, inflammation, repair and remodeling. Furthermore, in addition to their well-recognized role in cellular energy production and apoptosis, mitochondria appear to play a role in many respiratory diseases and lung cancer. Chapters are written by top notch researchers and clinicians and outline the evidence for mitochondrial biogenesis in inhalational lung injury, COPD and asthma.

Il ricondizionamento all'esercizio fisico del paziente con patologia respiratoria. Dalla valutazione al trattamento

a cura di Arir

editore: Edra

pagine: 310

Nel caso di patologie respiratorie l'esercizio fisico è raccomandato come uno degli interventi terapeutici obbligatori, a fianco della terapia farmacologica. Come ogni terapia, anche la prescrizione dell'esercizio si basa su un'accurata valutazione delle capacità dell'individuo e delle eventuali controindicazioni e richiede la conoscenza approfondita dei meccanismi fisiologici con cui si interagisce. Partendo dalle basi fisiologiche dell'allenamento, il volume affronta tutti gli aspetti utili per impostare e condurre un programma di ricondizionamento all'esercizio del paziente con patologia respiratoria: dalla valutazione al trattamento. Tenendo conto delle più recenti evidenze scientifiche, gli autori hanno descritto i test necessari per valutare le capacità fisiche del paziente e progettare un intervento mirato e personalizzato, senza dimenticare l'importanza dell'apporto nutrizionale e le strategie per favorire l'aderenza al programma durante e dopo la riabilitazione. Il testo affronta le varie modalità di allenamento, sia relative al paziente critico che nell'ambito dell'attività fisica a domicilio, e comprende le nuove strategie, le strumentazioni e le tecnologie per ottimizzare l'allenamento e gli accorgimenti pratici per migliorare la risposta del paziente.

Atlas of Interstitial Lung Disease Pathology

Pathology with High Resolution Ct Correlations

Andrew Churg

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 256

Providing pathologists with the extensive array of illustrations necessary to understand the morphologic spectrum of interstitial lung disease (ILD), Atlas of Interstitial Lung Disease Pathology: Pathology with High Resolution CT Correlations provides a clear guide to this often confusing and difficult topic. Each chapter touches on the important radiology, clinical, mechanistic, and prognostic features along with numerous illustrations of pathologic findings in a concise, easy-to-follow format. Packed with over 500 images that clarify the morphologic spectrum of interstitial lung diseases and demonstrate the features of the differential diagnoses, this quick reference will help you: observe and determine if a case shows the diagnostic features of a particular disease; effectively diagnose ILD through detailed illustrations of the pathology and expert coverage of imaging in every chapter; broaden your understanding of uncommon variants of relatively common ILDs; for example, fibrosis in chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) and in BOOP, interstitial spread of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), and progression of desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP) to a picture of fibrotic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP); use imaging material to understand the pathologic changes behind the radiologic appearances of ILDs; and stresses the team approach necessary for the final diagnosis of interstitial lung diseases.

Il testo è diviso in 11 sezioni e 60 capitoli, le cui tematiche principali riguardano le malattie infettive, allergiche e vascolari, la comorbidità, l'oncologia polmonare, l'insufficienza respiratoria acuta e cronica e il trattamento chirurgico delle malattie dell'apparato respiratorio. Gli autori hanno volutamente dato spazio alla formazione del personale sanitario, agli aspetti gestionali, ai percorsi diagnostico-terapeutici e ad aspetti solitamente trascurati, come la prevenzione (fumo di sigaretta, malattie professionali ed ambientali). Nella maggior parte dei Capitoli sono presenti numerose illustrazioni, tabelle, grafici, immagini di preparati istologici e immagini diagnostiche comunemente osservate nella pratica clinica. Tutti i capitoli sono completi di una sintesi, intitolata messaggi chiave e alla fine di ogni sezione sono presenti i quesiti a risposta multipla per l'auto-verifica.

Respiratory Disease

From Advanced Disease to Bereavement

Anna Spathis, Helen E. Davies
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 320

Respiratory disease is the second most common cause of death worldwide. Patients with advanced non-malignant disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, have similar or even greater health care needs than those with advanced lung cancer. Uncontrolled symptoms, distress, and social isolation contribute to the poor quality of life experienced by such patients. This book provides practical guidance to professionals who care for patients with advanced respiratory disease. It gives evidence-based advice on a wide range of topics, including management of respiratory and non-respiratory symptoms, chronic respiratory failure, and respiratory emergencies. Recognition of when a patient may be approaching the end of life can be particularly challenging in patients with advanced respiratory disease. Ways to facilitate prognostication are covered, along with the significant communication and ethical challenges that this phase of life can present. Written by a respiratory specialist and two palliative medicine physicians, this book will be of great value to doctors, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals working in respiratory medicine and in palliative care, both in relation to everyday clinical practice as well as meeting the requirements for postgraduate exams.
