At the present time, 430 drugs are known to cause respiratory injury. This represents an increase of almost 200 in the last ten years, and the number is still increasing. This comprehensive, definitive reference work, with an outstanding range of international expert contributors and two of the world's leading editors, provides an essential reference for the practising respiratory physician. Key features: * The text builds upon basics with a review of basic sciences. * The book covers imaging, varied drug-induced interstitial lung disease including pulmonary edema and diffuse alveolar hemorrhage, acute respiratory failure, pleural involvement and upper to lower airway disease * A wide range of diseases are detailed from chemotherapy and radiation to biologic-induced lung disease, drug misuse, and special groups such as recipients of stem cell and solid organ transplants. * A range of world class contributions from key opinion leaders. This book provides essential information for recognizing and managing drug-induced respiratory disease for all pulmonologists and respiratory care physicians. It will be of great interest to: critical care medicine specialists, hematologists, oncologists, cardiologists, allergists, rheumatologists, neurologists, internists, blood-bank specialists, pathologists and primary care physicians.
