For more than thirty-five years, this trusted review has provided students, residents, and fellows with a solid background in the aspects of pulmonary physiology that are essential for an understanding of clinical medicine. The book clearly describes how and why the human respiratory system works in a style that is easy to absorb and integrate with your existing knowledge of other body systems.

Key Features:
  • Thoroughly updated with new figures, tables, and end-of-chapter references and clinical correlations
  • Each chapter includes clearly stated learning objectives, summaries of key concepts, illustrations of essential concepts, clinical correlations, problems, and pulmonary function test data to interpret, and suggested readings
  • Enables you to understand the basic concepts of pulmonary physiology well enough to apply them with confidence in future practice
  • Provides detailed explanations of physiologic mechanisms and demonstrates how they apply to pathologic states

If you’re in need of a concise, time-tested, basic review of pulmonary physiology — one that encourages comprehension rather than memorization, your search ends here.
