Abstract
This book comprehensively covers chronic lung disease and cardiovascular disease and their influence on one another including the epidemiology, physiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnostic issues including laboratory and imaging tests, and therapeutic considerations. How the diseases specifically overlap is explored in detail, covering presentation, symptoms, clinical examination findings, diagnostic test results, as well as a number of important medication interactions. The cardiovascular considerations in this book will include left ventricular systolic and diastolic dysfunction, pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular disease, as well as cardiac arrhythmias. The book also addresses extra-cardiac cardiovascular comorbidities such as cerebrovascular disease and peripheral arterial disease. Each chapter includes detailed illustrations as well as useful pearls and best practices, making this an ideal reference for pulmonologists, cardiologists, and residents caring for patients with increased risk for these comorbidities.

Abstract
This book considers chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) not as a simple inflammation of the lung but as a systemic inflammatory disease. Beginning with epidemiological studies, etiology, diagnosis and treatment, it elaborates further, illustrating some comorbidities and associations with other respiratory diseases. As such it provides numerous improved and more comprehensive treatment methods, including drug therapies as well as some non-drug therapies. There are also chapters describing the pathogenesis, genetic abnormalities and newly discovered pathogenetic mechanisms that are expected to be studied further in the future. Edited and written by pioneering researchers, each chapter summarizes the latest trends, describes future prospects and explores the unresolved and critical questions. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - A Systemic Inflammatory Disease is a valuable resource to beginning researchers, physicians engaged in clinical practice, supervisors, and basic researchers whose work includes COPD.

Abstract
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. By 2020, COPD is expected to be the fifth leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death. COPD is associated with significant co-morbid illnesses including cardiovascular disease, pulmonary vascular disease, osteoporosis, depression and thoracic malignancies. In addition, COPD patients often have systemic manifestations of their disease, including peripheral muscle dysfunction, decreased activity levels and nutritional abnormalities, all of which contribute to poor functional status, decreased quality of life and increased health care utilization. Lack of recognition and understanding of the complex interactions of these common co-morbid conditions and systemic effects often contributes to sub-optimal care for patients with COPD. Comprehensive in covering the range of co-morbidities that often accompany COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Co-Morbidities and Systemic Consequences provides a concise, evidence-based review of the problem and its systemic manifestations. All physicians interested in this growing disorder--from subspecialists to primary care providers--will find in this timely and informative title the practical, state-of-the art approaches needed to provide targeted, integrated care for patients with COPD.

Abstract
This book explains how analysis of the heterogeneity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) enhances understanding of the condition and leads to improved, personalized treatment. State of the art knowledge is presented on a range of issues related to the heterogeneity of COPD, such as phenotypes (clinical, physiologic, radiologic, etc.), genotypes, and the tools to be used for dissecting heterogeneity (CT, MRI, biomarkers, etc.). Especially modern radiologic imaging holds promise in this context, and its role is described in detail with the aid of numerous illustrations. The implications of the heterogeneity for personalized treatment are clearly identified, with description of an appropriate tailored treatment strategy for each subgroup of patients. Information is provided on both current and emerging strategies, including bronchoscopic lung volume reduction and approaches to the management of pulmonary hypertension and comorbidities. This book will be a great asset in clinical practice and research for all who have an interest in COPD, a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Abstract
Long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) usually represents the final step in the management of severe chronic respiratory diseases: a large proportion of patients suffering from these conditions is involved and the corresponding impact for the Health Institutions and the Society is dramatically increasing. Although LTOT is well known and widely used since long ago in most modern countries, it still represents a challenging topic due to the huge amount of variables which can affect both its efficacy and effectiveness. Unfortunately, patients, doctors, care-givers, together with health institutions and political decision makers frequently have different visions on LTOT, thus highly contributing to obtain uneven results and changing outcomes. The focus of this volume is on new insights and novel perspectives of LTOT. Starting from consolidated experiences, it's aim is also to emphasize the strategic value of developing technologies and innovative organizational models uniquely to find out even more opportunities and advantages for the management of chronic respiratory patients needing long-term oxygen treatment.
