Containing over 150 color images, An Atlas of Induced Sputum is the first comprehensive research and clinical guide to this extremely valuable technique. The material for this volume comes from the lead authors in the field who contributed to the Task Force on Induced Sputum of the European Respiratory Society, leading to a document which sets the gold standard for work in this field. The Atlas is aimed at both clinicians and scientists, whether experienced or beginners, who are considering the use of induced sputum in their work. It presents some of the most relevant findings obtained to date. The atlas discusses and provides recommendations for some of the key methodological problems related to the safety of sputum induction and processing.
