Description

Mustard Lung: Diagnosis and Treatment of Respiratory Disorders in Sulfur-Mustard Injured Patients brings together the details regarding pathophysiology, medication, and protective issues to provide a comprehensive look at health problems associated with sulfur mustard injury. It provides a bench-to-bedside look at the long term complications of vesicant exposure in humans as well as how mustard gas exposure affects lung function. By providing guidelines and approaches for the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of SM injury cases, this book is helpful for a wide range of medical researchers and clinicians.

For decades, chemical respiratory disorders were diagnosed and managed traditionally similar to other chronic respiratory diseases. However, the exact nature of chemical respiratory disorders is different and needs to be treated as such.

Review quote

"The issue that serious students of this topic would need to access a variety of peer-reviewed and "grey" literature emanating from dissertations, meeting abstracts, or forums has now been addressed. Ultimately, the book concludes with an outline of prescriptions useful in the chronic phase of treatment. Score: 95 - 4 Stars!" --Doody's
