Respiratory Chest Pain: Diagnosis and Treatment
MetadataShow full item record
Chest pain from respiratory causes is a common complaint and may indicate the presence of a serious or even life-threatening pathologic condition. Most chest pains are the result of irritation or inflammation of the parietal pleura, as the visceral pleura is insensate, although pain may arise from direct malignant invasion or trauma to the chest wall. Rapid recognition with appropriate understanding of the anatomy and physiology of chest pain from respiratory causes is vital to ensure timely and appropriate therapy. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
