Title in English: Respiratory System: Disorders and Therapy From a New, Dynamic Viewpoint, from the series: Bolk's companions for the practice of Medicine [Student version]
Abstract / summary in English:
In this Companion, the experience of three of our own patients with asthma and pneumonia is used as backdrop for our study of airway disorders. Nearly all of us have had some experience with respiratory disease, given that colds, flus, sinusitis, and bronchitis are so common. Most physicians and therapists know people with asthma and pneumonia from own experience and will readily recognize the descriptions we provide.
The experience with these patients leads us through a study of airway disease which eventually opens up to a wider view with new insights and innovative avenues of treatment for respiratory disorders in general.
Our research has alerted us to the part rhythm plays in the healthy respiratory tract and in the treatment of its disease. Rhythm, consequently, is the subject of
the final paragraphs of this Companion.
