From the Publisher
"I believe that the authors have achieved their objective, which was to present a critical, up-to-date, and comprehensive review of the effects of obesity on the heart and lung."
—Texas Heart Institute Journal
"The summaries are eminently readable and contain concise, relevant, and useful information. Therefore, I see the textbook’s best value for those desiring an in-depth knowledge regarding obesity or alternatively as a resource for people seeking accurate, concise data that addresses specific problems in clinical care of these difficult problems."
"Dietitians who work with severely obese patients will find much valuable information in this book."
—Journal of the American Dietetic Association
"The Heart and Lung in Obesity is an initial step towards a more comprehensive text devoted to this topic. It will certainly appeal to internists and cardiologists with an interest in the cardiorespiratory management of the morbidly obese adult."
"This textbook is recommended without reservation."
—Canadian Journal of Cardiology
"This book is readable and well organized. It will primarily interest clinical investigators working in the field of obesity, but will also be a useful resource for clinicians managing obese patients—cardiologists and pulmonologists in particular."
