This multi-contributed text, co-ordinated by one of the leading authorities in the field, is a unique resource to cover in depth the management of the important issue of Nosocomial Pneumonia in respiratory medicine and critical care. This disease presents the clinician with a variety of challenges, in both diagnosis and management, all of which represent a significant concern for the welfare of patients whose ability to combat infection is frequently already compromised.

Nosocomial Pneumonia: Strategies for Management is dedicated specifically to this most common hospital acquired respiratory infection and reviews important new advances in therapeutics, including drug resistance. It is an essential resource for all postgraduates and specialist physicians in pulmonology and infectious diseases.
