       comprehensive coverage of dyspnea in chronic pulmonary 
       diseases. Offers the insight of international experts and 
       key opinion leaders who provide trusted, authoritative 
       information Includes key guidelines on the multi-
       dimensional measurement, assessment, and management of 
       dyspnea to ensure best practice. Details the developments
