Each Monograph covers a specific area of respiratory medicine, providing in-depth reviews that give clinicians at all levels a concise, comprehensive guide to symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.


The Impact of Air Pollution on Respiratory Health

European Respiratory Society Monograph, Vol. 21. 2002
ISBN: 9781904097242

It is to Plinius the Younger that we owe the first description of a fatal respiratory disorder induced by natural air pollution. The patient was Plinius the Elder, writer, scientist, and Head of the Roman Fleet, which had moved to Pompei in the Bay of Naples (Italy), to observe better the eruption of the Mount Vesuvio in the year 73 A.D.

This classic topic, i.e. the relationship between pollution and asthma, is now extensively revisited and updated in this excellent Monograph. Resuming the old times, when the Admiral Nelson's Fleet was protecting the Bay of Naples in the name of the British-Napolitan Friendship and Alliance, our British professor S. Holgate, and Neapolitan professor G. D'Amato, now give us the pleasure of reading this outstanding series of articles.
