(Respiratory Disease Series: Diagnostic Tools and Disease Managements)

Divided  into thirteen chapters, this book provides a wealth of  research-oriented findings and practical guidance, ranging from the  definition, epidemiology and pathophysiology, to the diagnosis and  management of the disease. Although acute respiratory distress syndrome  (ARDS) is defined by the acute onset of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema,  hypoxemia and the need for mechanical ventilation, it is a heterogeneous  disease entity, which makes it difficult to develop specific therapies.  Treatment tends to focus on lung-protective ventilation, and no  specific pharmacotherapies have been identified. All chapters were  written by respected experts in the field, and summarize the latest  trends, share recent research findings, and outline future prospects.  Specific chapters are devoted to novel, promising diagnostic approaches,  such as microRNA, which may improve our ability to identify early ARDS  or at-risk patients. In addition, a dedicated chapter explores  cell-based therapies and regenerative medicine, which offer potential  therapeutic options

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome -  Advances in Diagnostic Tools and Disease Management offers a valuable  reference guide not only for young physicians and trainees, but also for  experienced or teaching physicians, medical educators, and basic  researchers. Readers will find the latest information on ARDS and come  to understand the current challenges, encouraging them to further  advance the diagnosis, treatment and clinical research on this disease.
