Lays the foundation for problem solving by integrating physiology and practice. The majority of the book is then devoted to physiotherpay management and its rationale. It specifically addresses the problems of patients with breathlessness, those undergoing surgery or in intensive care, the elderly and children. Pulmonary rehabilitation and home management reflect changing policies in health care. Advice on emergencies and on-calls is given with flow charts to assist decision making. Physiological reasoning, putcome measures, and critical review are themes throughout, and the book concludes with an evaluation of respiratory physiotherapy.
