APSR Respiratory Updates

(Latest issues)

Dr David CL Lam

APSR Respiratory Updates is a unique publication bringing you the most important clinical research in respiratory medicine. Each month an expert within the APSR will identify and review ten key publications in their field. In addition to a link to the publication, a brief commentary on why the study is important will be provided. This series represents an important initiative of the Education Committee of the APSR. We hope you find it informative and useful in your clinical practice.
