Item description for Breath Analysis for Clinical Diagnosis And Therapeutic Monitoring by Anton Amann & David Smith...

This book describes how the analysis of the trace gases in exhaled breath can be used for non-invasive clinical diagnosis of disease and for monitoring the effectiveness of therapy. This approach offers an important addition to the diagnostic techniques available to medicine, having the advantage that on-line breath analysis can provide information to the clinician immediately and thus facilitate rapid diagnosis and treatment. The book is a compilation of contributions to a conference held in Dornbirn, Austria, 2326 September 2004 on various aspects of this new topic. Written by the foremost workers in the field, it will provide clinicians and others in the medical fraternity with an up-to-date summary of the status of the subject. The wide scope of the chapters ranges from descriptions of the analytical methods that are available, through the use of breath analysis in the study of physiological phenomena, to the identification of biomarkers of particular injury and disease.

Reviews - What do customers think about Breath Analysis for Clinical Diagnosis And Therapeutic Monitoring?

Exhalted breath analysis  Jan 26, 2009
Exhaled breath analysis is a new technique for medical diagnosis with
great future potential.

Already in clinical use is a 13C-urea based breath test for infection
with helicobacter pylori (causing gastric ulcer and gastric cancer).
Another clinically used test is the hydrogen breath test for fructose or
lactose malabsorption. A breath test for dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase
deficiency is presently introduced into clinical testing (this is
important because persons suffering from this deficiency should not get
cancer treatment with 5-fluorouracil). A breath test for heart
transplant rejection, based on endogenously produced methylated
hydrocarbons has been approved by FDA. The determination of nitric oxide
in exhaled breath (from the upper airways) is used with asthma patients.

Exhaled breath analyis is expected to have an enormous impact on medical
diagnostic techniques in the next decade. It is non-invasive,
comparatively cheap, and analytical techniques have the potential of
miniaturization (leading to matchbox-size analytical devices which can
be used by medical practioners in daily routine).

The present book is the only overview of all applications of exhaled
breath analysis and all different analytical techniques used in the
field. Apart from excellent contributions it has a very carefully
prepared index which allows quick search (and, in addition, the book is
delivered with an electronic fully searchable version on CD-ROM).
