ERS Monograph 74: Pulmonary Emergencies Edited by Leo Heunks, Alexandre Demoule and Wolfram Windisch
This Monograph, written by well recognised experts in the field, provides a comprehensive overview of pulmonary emergencies. A broad range of diff erent respiratory emergencies is covered, from pneumothorax, pulmonary embolism, right heart failure and haematothorax to acute exacerbations of diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Recent developments in treatment strategies for acute pulmonary problems are also discussed in detail, with chapters on topics such as high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy, extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal and noninvasive ventilation.
The ERJ and ERR are moving to continuous publication
From January 2017, the publishing models of the European Respiratory Journal (ERJ) and European Respiratory Review (ERR) will be changing. Rather than publishing conventional complete online issues at fixed intervals, the journals will be moving to a continuous publication model. The central aspect of the new publishing model is that articles can be published online in their final form, with their final citation details, as soon as they have been copyedited, typeset and proofread. Articles will be added in small, regular batches to the current “open” issue of the journal, which will grow over time until it is “closed” and replaced by a new open issue. In the case of the ERJ, new issues will be opened monthly; in the case of the ERR, this will happen every 3 months. Tables of contents will continue to be organised thematically, rather than being ordered by the date articles are published.
