The book is divided into 46 chapters across nine sections, beginning with disorders of the upper respiratory tract, and congenital disorders of the reparatory tract such as larnygomalacia and diaphragmatic hernia. Further sections cover wheezing disorders, respiratory tract infections, suppurative and interstitial lung diseases and pleural diseases.
