Pulmonary rehabilitation is discussed at length with extra emphasis on home management to match the changing policies in health care. Outcome measures and critical reviews are a theme throughout, with the final chapter devoted to an evaluation of practice. This thought-provoking book is essential reading for physiotherapy students, educators, clinicians and nurse specialists in respiratory and intensive care.
