Age-adjusted death rates have decreased significantly with the largest changes occurring in older patients.? Despite these trends, the 10 leading causes of death include several pulmonary etiologies including lung cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia.
Aging and Lung Disease: A Clinical Guide is devoted to understanding the impact of respiratory diseases in older patients.? It includes reviews of physiology of the aging lung, allergy and immunology of the aging, as well as sleep changes over the life cycle.?

In addition to outlining the current state of knowledge, each chapter focuses on special considerations when caring for older patients.? Of particular interest to pulmonologists, internists, and gerontologists, other readers, such as pulmonary and geriatric nurse practitioners, as well as clinical researchers interested in both pulmonary and aging issues, will find Aging and Lung Disease: A Clinical Guide?to be a vital resource for improving their care of older patients with lung disorders.
