Pulmonary Physiology Lange Physiology By Michael G Levitzky
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.
also available in print. lee l, devarajan k, merriam k, editors. pulmonary physiology, sixth edition: molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease. philadelphia, pa: lippincott-raven publishers; 2010. this textbook also covers blood flow and gas exchange, including the physiology of respiration, acid-base balance, ventilation, lung mechanics, pulmonary function tests, and sleep disorders.
pulmonary physiology, 7e is written by clinical physicians for use in medical school, residency, and other medical settings. the authors detail the mechanisms behind the processes that control breathing and are designed to integrate lessons in physiology with clinical medicine and current diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. the chapters in this edition are written for a general audience and also include specialty-related chapters on essential topics in pulmonary physiology, such as oxygen transport and pathophysiology, ph and acid-base balance, lung mechanics, perfusion, blood gases, respiratory toxicity, and sleep disorders.
pulmonary physiology, 6e will teach you how and why the human respiratory system works in a style and presentation that makes it easy to absorb and integrate with your knowledge of other body systems. readers will learn how and why the human respiratory system works in a style and presentation that makes it easy to absorb and integrate with your knowledge of other body systems. each topic is explained in a concise, jargon-free style that makes it easy to retain important information.
features: every chapter includes learning objectives, summaries of key concepts, study questions, clinical examples, illustrations of essential concepts, and suggested readings provides detailed explanations of physiologic mechanisms and demonstrates how they apply to pathologic states helps you to understand the basic concepts of pulmonary physiology well enough to apply them with confidence to future patients delivers concise yet in-depth coverage of every important topic, including: function and structure of the respiratory system mechanics of breathing alveolar ventilation blood flow to the lungs ventilation-perfusion relationships diffusion of gases and interpretationof pulmonary function tests transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood acid-base balance control of breathing nonrespiratory functions of the lung the respiratory system under stress, including exercise, altitude, diving, and sleep
