It is especially concerned with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and defects of the lungs and bronchial tree.Practice Guidelines as Topic: Directions or principles presenting current or future rules of policy for assisting health care practitioners in patient care decisions regarding diagnosis, therapy, or related clinical circumstances. The guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, professional societies, governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. The guidelines form a basis for the evaluation of all aspects of health care and delivery.Evidence-Based Medicine: An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care.
