Now in it's fourth edition, Physiotherapy for Respiratory and Cardiac Problems continues to be an essential textbook and reference source for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and for the clinician working with patients with cardiac and respiratory problems. It strengths lie in integrating the evidence with clinical practice and in covering the whole patient lifespan - infants, children, adolescents and adults.

"A comprehensive, up-to-date text covering a wide range of topics […] an essential textbook for students and practitioners in the field of cardiorespiratory care." Journal of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists

"[Thanks] to the combination of evidence based information and easy reading I feel that this book is one of the must have texts for all physiotherapists with an interest in respiratory or cardiac problems." The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care Newsletter

"Now in its fourth edition this text is a must for all physiotherapy students. The chapters are well laid out, and all of the information is explained in an easily understandable way. This new edition provides the most up to date information for clinical practice from paediatrics through to the elderly. Chapter six is particularly useful, it provides the reader with case studies and then works through a logical way of problem solving along with introducing the reader to specific outcome measures. All in all a must have text!!!!" - Laura Culpan, Physiotherapy student, University of Bradford
