“Pulmonary Manifestations of Rheumatic Disease: A Comprehensive Guide”
By Paul F. Dellaripa, MD, co-director, BWH Interstitial Lung Disease Clinic; et al.
The 222-page guide covers the comprehensive management of rheumatologic lung disease via a multi-disciplinary approach. Also called, connective tissue disease, systemic rheumatologic disease is characterized by autoimmune-mediated organ dysfunction. The lungs are a frequent target, and patients with rheumatologic disease are at risk of developing associated lung disease.
Using a case-based approach, the book is a resource for clinicians when assessing and understanding rheumatologic lung disease. It is the first text of its kind focused on describing the diverse, commonplace and challenging aspects of rheumatologic lung diseases.
“Six Weeks to Love Running,” published earlier this year, is an engaging, how-to book that shares the secrets to staying motivated and inspired to run. The book details a new approach to enjoy running and fitness through a program that will get people out and running for 30 minutes straight in six weeks. The program focuses on topics such as how to breathe without becoming winded, developing proper running style and stride, injury-free stretches, using positive affirmations, and more.
