Compendium of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: Pulmonary, 2nd edition written by Margaret L. Campbell, PhD, RN, FPCN


Compendium Editor: Patrick J. Coyne, MSN, APRN, ACHPN®, ACNS-BC, FAAN, FPCN


The Compendium is a series of seven books designed to serve as a resource in constructing an appropriate plan of care for individuals and their families experiencing these diseases. These modules examine the incidence of each disease process, the pathophysiology of the illness, appropriate assessment techniques and treatments as the disease progresses. The modules further define the psycho-social implications. The modules specifically question the potential ethical, economic and research implications as related to each specific disease process.


Dyspnea, respiratory distress, cough, and retained airway secretions burden the patient and are the emphases of a respiratory palliative care treatment plan. Assessment depends on the cognitively intact patient’s ability to give a self report and on behavioral cues from the cognitively impaired or comatose patient. Treatments vary by the individual patient goals and the stage of illness progression and may include prolongative therapies such as mechanical ventilation. As death becomes imminent, the focus of care is on reducing dyspnea and respiratory distress using non-pharmacologic strategies along with opioids and sedatives. Clinicians are guided in their treatment by available research, practice guidelines, and ethical standards.




NEW: Compendium of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: Pulmonary is available alone or in a collection of other six-second editions (i.e., Dementia, Heart Failure, Neurological Diseases and Trauma, Hepatic, HIV/AIDS, Renal) bound in one book.
