Review for "Pulmonary Disorders of the Elderly" Feb 9, 2008
The book has an easy format to read and understand.I think it is the only book concerning the pulmonary diseases for the elderley.The book has an algoritmic approach.The most important handicap of this book is that it is too short for experienced clinicians.Especially the treatment sections which I consider to be the most important part of such a book are extremely short and does not include details.The book also does not contain any radiologic images which are the most important and exclusive point for pulmonary diagnosis. If the treatment details were enlarged and radiologic images were included this book would be the best of its kind.
