Murray & Nadel's Textbook of Respiratory Medicine attempts to cover the natural course of disease progression across the life span and embodies the collective knowledge of hundreds of leaders in the field—knowledge of pediatric and adult practice that is in turn based on the work of additional thousands. Now in its fifth edition, comprising 95 chapters and 2400 pages replete with charts, diagrams, tables, illustrations, and photographs, the book provides a truly encyclopedic overview of pulmonary medicine. The information is presented in a user-friendly and easy-to-read format, and each of the chapters concludes with a summary of key points for easy reference.
