Respiratory Medicine

An Asian Perspective

This is the first book to focus on respiratory health and diseases in Asia, where 60% of the world’s population reside. It is well known that disease patterns and health care delivery vary in different parts of the world. With divergent socioeconomic background, genetic makeup and environmental factors, health care issues take on a unique perspective in Asia. In this volume, respiratory health and diseases are presented and discussed with relevance to their unique epidemiology and management in Asia. The chapters are contributed by professional leaders who are highly respected for their clinical expertise in respiratory medicine in different parts of Asia. Many of them are internationally renowned for their academic excellence. Their collective extensive experience offers a wealth of knowledge that is invaluable to readers not only in Asia but also to other parts of the world. The high mobility of populations exposes clinicians to people from all over the world in their daily clinical practice. This informative book is a useful reference equally for medical students, clinicians in training and respiratory specialists.
