From drug absorption, mechanism of drug action, pharmacokinetics, and more, each topic is reviewed and progressively builds from simple to complex material.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Long K. Han, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a hardcover handbook of important cardiopulmonary physiology concepts that have profound significance in anesthetic applications.
Purpose: The authors are physiologists at Louisiana State University. Their aim in writing this book is to provide a review of basic and applied physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The authors have published several works on these topics. Their experience is further enhanced by the clinical perspective provided by one of the authors who is a practicing anesthesiologist.
Audience: The audience for this review are anesthesia trainees and graduates who are studying for certification.
Features: Significant features of the book include high-quality black-and-white diagrams and tables. In every chapter, these are used to illustrate important and occasionally obscure concepts. However, many of these illustrations are simply reproductions (with permissions) of works presented elsewhere. Accompanying the excellent illustrations is the uniformly clear and concise prose. The reader will appreciate the authors' ability to distill potentially difficult concepts into cogent text and illustrations. One characteristic of the book is the paucity of references. Although the authors intend this book to serve as a simple review, some of the references point toward other reference textbooks and are not very useful to the reader looking for original literature.
Assessment: This is a useful book with clear and well-written content along with highly didactic illustrations. The authors admirably fulfilled their goal of providing a source for review of physiology for anesthesia trainees.
