Clinical Respiratory Physiology covers the practical aspects and theoretical concepts of applied respiratory physiology. The book describes the methods of measuring ventilator capacity, lung volumes, ventilation, diffusion, cardiac output, and ventilation-perfusion rates. The text also tackles methods of measuring airway resistance and blood gases. Compliance and work of breathing, acid-base regulation, and tests of cardiorespiratory function during exercise are also looked into. Junior doctors working in respiratory units, technicians in respiratory laboratories, general physicians, and senior medical students will find the book useful.
