Knowledge of the practical procedures that are commonly used in diagnosis, evaluation and management is vital to the health professional. Despite this, however, the time allocated to gaining and practising important clinical skills during training in shrinking. This book aims to complement, and supplement, the traditional apprenticeship system. It will provide trainee paediatricians and respiratory physicians, and children's nurses in training, with invaluable advice and support when tackling the clinical problems that they are presented with in everyday practice. With a highly structured approach, numerous illustrative diagrams and clinical photographs, case studies and information boxes, the book will be referred to frequently as a practical tool in the clinical setting and will provide useful guidance and pointers during exam revision.
