Abstract
Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition, is a fully updated version of a widely respected classic on the diagnosis and management of asthma. Discussing the disorder in all relevant patient groups, including a variety of patient subpopulations, this invaluable title continues to emphasize the definition, medications, and practical use of asthma treatment plans. As in previous editions, the book also continues to define and focus on the special clinical problems of the pregnant patient, the patient undergoing emergency treatment, as well as the common day issues of exercise, athletics, recreational drug use and especially self care. Importantly, this comprehensive reference also discusses the common side effects found in the full range of medications used for asthma treatment. Replete with a wide range of tables and charts to again make the book practical and user-friendly, Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition, continues its position as a leading text in the field.

Abstract
The aim of this book is to identify and shed new light on the main surgical practices involved in acute care and trauma surgery. Adopting an evidence-based approach, a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and intensivists illustrate basic and advanced operative techniques, accompanied by a comprehensive and updated reference collection. Emerging surgical procedures in Acute Care Surgery are also explored step by step with the help of ample illustrations. Further, the book offers an overview of treatment options for acute organ failure, with a focus on peculiar clinical situations that call for special treatment, including: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), circulatory support and urgent liver transplantation. In order to identify the key determinants in decision-making and therapeutic support that can help avoid critical errors, authors not only define and discuss specific surgical techniques, but also present major issues and controversies related to it. In essence, the book can be considered a “What to do guide” that offers easy access to both basic and advanced lifesaving surgical procedures, due in part to text boxes highlighting “Tips, Tricks and Pitfalls” as well as advice on “Complications Management”. Many chapters are enriched by providing clinical case scenarios, an important educational resource including self–assessment questionnaires.
