Overview

Respiratory System, 2nd Edition provides a concise and highly visual approach to the basic sciences and clinical pathology of this body system. This volume in The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations (the CIBA "Green Books") has been expanded and revised by Dr. David Kaminsky to cover important topics like pulmonary hypertension, COPD, asthma, drug-resistant TB, modern endoscopic and surgical techniques, and more. Classic Netter art, updated illustrations, and modern imaging make this timeless work essential to your library.

  • Access rare illustrations in one convenient source from the only Netter work devoted specifically to the respiratory system.
  • Get a complete overview of the respiratory system through multidisciplinary coverage from physiology and biochemistry to adult and pediatric medicine and surgery.
  • Gain a quick understanding of complex topics from a concise text-atlas format that provides a context bridge between primary and specialized medicine.
  • Grasp the nuances of the pathophysiology of today’s major respiratory conditions—including pulmonary hypertension, COPD, asthma, environmental lung disease, sleep disorders, infections of the immunocompromised, neonatal breathing disorders, and drug-resistant TB, and modern endoscopic and surgical techniques—through advances in molecular biology and radiologic imaging.
  • Benefit from the expertise of the new editor, David Kaminsky, MD, who contributes significant experience in asthma and general pulmonary and critical care medicine, and his team of world class contributors.
  • Clearly see the connection between basic and clinical sciences with an integrated overview of normal structure and function as it relates to pathologic conditions.
  • Apply a visual approach—with the classic Netter art, updated illustrations, and modern imaging—to normal and abnormal body function and the clinical presentation of the patient.
  • Tap into the perspectives of an international advisory board for content that reflects the current global consensus.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joel C Seidman, MD (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This is the second edition of a unique and, probably, one-of-a-kind, monograph, broadly addressing normal bronchopulmonary anatomy and physiology, as well as a huge spectrum of disease process. While the text is not particularly exhaustive, it provides up-to-date generalities on epidemiology, presentation, and diagnostics, with limited commentaries upon treatment. What is most remarkable is the effort expended on the illustrations, by a talented physician-illustrator who has the background to create drawings based on an underlying scientific knowledge. Dr. Netter's drawings elaborate more detail than might be obtained by photographing a real patient or from a pathologic specimen or a particular radiograph. How often, in preparation of a pedagogic presentation, does one search for examples of a disease process in archives obtained from past experience and fail to find a truly good example? Yet such exists in Dr. Netter's repertoire.
Purpose: The purpose is to present clinical observations of normal bronchopulmonary anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology concurrently with outstanding illustrations, images which often must be imagined from descriptions in most other medical books.
Audience: The audience includes primary care internists, pulmonologists, and intensivists. However, the most useful application of the illustrations, to my thinking, might be for teaching medical students and residents early in their education when disease processes are first considered and, when properly selected, for patients capable of appreciating instruction in some depth regarding their disease.
Features: The book focuses on broad categories in pulmonology and augments substantially the presentation of the last edition. Illustrations and graphics are outstanding and make this the masterpiece that it is. The bibliographies at the end are sufficient for the intent of the book, relevant, and timely. The index is satisfactory.
Assessment: For pulmonologists, the book achieves its likely intended goals well. I would personally consider it an essential resource.
