Now edited by a pulmonologist, the third edition of Respiratory Disease: A Case Study Approach to Patient Care is still the most well-written text for students learning to understand the assessment and treatment of patients with respiratory disease. Each chapter begins with a background of selected disorders, followed by a case study with questions and answers designed to stimulate the critical thinking skills of students.

New to this edition are "sidebars" and bulleted chapter summaries. Master pulmonologist, Philip Gold, has been added to the already exceptional author team for this edition.
