9780198530039: Dyspnoea in Advanced Disease: A Guide to Clinical Management

Dyspnoea (breathlessness) is an uncomfortable awareness of breathing that occurs in approximately 30-75 per cent of terminal cancer patients. It is one of the most distressing symptoms for both patients and family members and can seriously impact on quality of life. Typically, dyspnoea is associated with congestive heart failure, end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or lung cancer. This book provides palliative care doctors and specialist nurses with practical guidelines to help manage and treat patients with breathlessness. It includes the science behind the symptom in an attempt to explain the pathology and physiology of this complex condition. The book has been organized to address generalized aspects of breathlessness in advanced illness and more specific aetiologies and managements relevant to particular underlying diseases. It summarizes the epidemiology and the pathophysiology of breathlessness, measurement, research approaches, rehabilitation and exercise, clinical approaches that can be taken at the bedside, pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches, and surgical interventions. The care of patients with dyspnoea requires input from a variety of disciplines such as palliative care, physiotherapy, respiratory medicine and nursing, and this is reflected in the multidisciplinary list of contributors.

Review:


"This is a very interesting book, and relevant to the clinical practice of many. It would be a welcome addition to the clinical library of respiratory, oncology and palliative care units."--Oncology News


"This book is eminently readable, not too long, and offers information to a wide variety of practitioners. I would recommend it to practitioners in palliative care, respiratory medicine, cardiology, neurology and oncology- particularly to doctors, specialist nurses and physiotherapists."--Palliative Medicine


"Dyspnoea in Advanced Disease: A Guide to Clinical Management is a fine addition to the body of literature on the management of dyspnea. It is a practical guide, written in a very accessible style, and is very reasonably priced. Respiratory therapists who work in the palliative or chronic care setting will find it particularly useful, as will educators seeking a text that presents a complex topic as elegantly as possible."--Respiratory Care
