Description

This text explains how the respiratory system functions and provides a framework for understanding many respiratory diseases. It was developed as a working text with problem-solving exercises for students. The book covers pulmonary anatomy and microstructure, mechanics, gas exchange, acid-base balance, and control mechanisms. It aims to strike a balance between the principles of pulmonary gas exchange, neural control, and integrative aspects of respiration.show more

Review quote

"This small educational book 'written with the student in mind' provides a state-of-the-art knowledge in the broad subject of respiratory physiology. In summary, this book is highly didactic. It is to be recommended not only to pre- and postgraduate medical students, but also to clinicians involved in respiratory and critical care medicine." -- European Respiratory Journal"an excellent reference for the student in respiratory therapy and other allied health disciplines. I would also recommend it as a review tool for the experienced practitioner." -- Canadian Journal of Respiratory Therapy "This small educational book 'written with the student in mind' provides a state-of-the-art knowledge in the broad subject of respiratory physiology.
