Summary "Documents both environmental and work-related causes of lung disease. Unlike other books on the subject, this new volume approaches occupational and environmental lung disease from the starting point of the patient who comes to the physician with respiratory symptoms. The authors recognize that potentially harmful exposures occur not only in the work environment, but also as a result of hobbies or other leisure activities, or from outdoor air pollution, and it is up the physician to identify whether a particular job or hobby is the cause of the patient's respiratory symptoms. To help you arrive at a differential diagnosis, chapters in the book are arranged by job or exposure, and are divided into 5 sections: Personal environment. Home environment. Other indoor environments. Work environment. General environment. Each is written by an expert in the specific topic and provides pragmatic information for the practicing physician. This practical book is an invaluable resource that belongs close at hand for all physicians dealing with patients experiencing respiratory symptoms"-- Provided by publisher
