Overview

Concise and easy to read, this completely updated new edition correlates basic pathophysiologic principles with the radiologic, pathologic, and clinical aspects of disease to provide an integrated, user-friendly approach to the study of pulmonary medicine. In addition to detailed text, case-based questions cover topics including interpretation of pulmonary function tests, physiologic data, and results of arterial blood gas testing. More than 120 high-quality images complement the discussion of specific diseases and provide a clear framework for understanding difficult pulmonary concepts. The text provides updated coverage of diagnostic modalities in pulmonary disease, as well as management of asthma, lung cancer, respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, and other important pulmonary diseases. A new, web-based interactive learning tool box offers additional radiographic images, audio clips of lung sounds, and self-assessment questions modeled after the questions found on the USMLE exams. In print and online, this is an essential resource for mastering the foundations of pulmonary medicine.
  • Guides you through the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology relevant to major pulmonary disorders, and then focuses on the clinical aspects and treatment of specific diseases.
  • Presents more than 120 high-quality images which complement the discussion of specific diseases and provide a clear framework for understanding difficult pulmonary concepts.
  • Uses margin notes throughout the text that summarize and highlight critical information for quick review.
  • Features case-based questions covering topics including pulmonary function tests, physiologic data, and results of arterial blood gas testing, that help you apply the material to real-life practice.
  • Includes access to a web-based interactive learning tool box, featuring additional chest radiographs, audio clips of lung sounds, and self-assessment questions that test your ability to apply physiologic principles to quantitative problems, modeled after the questions found on the USMLE.
  • Presents updated coverage of diagnostic modalities used in pulmonary disease, as well as management of asthma, lung cancer, respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, and other important pulmonary diseases to help you choose the most effective course of patient treatment.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Alain F. Broccard, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is an excellent introduction to pulmonary medicine for medical students as well as a concise reference for review of basic concepts. This fourth edition updates the 1998 third edition.
Purpose: This is intended as a textbook to aid medical students with learning the pathophysiology of pulmonary medicine. The book meets this worthy goal.
Audience: It is written to aid medical students with primary learning, as well as to act as a reference for residents and fellows who are reviewing and teaching difficult concepts. The author is a credible authority in pulmonary medicine.
Features: The book provides an overview of all aspects of pulmonary medicine, from anatomy and physiology, to lung cancer, vascular, inflammatory, fibrotic, and infectious disorders. There are multiple excellent figures and diagrams, summary points in the margins, and a detailed index. Shortcomings, such as lack of in-depth explanations, are solved by references provided at the end of chapters.
Assessment: I found this book to be an excellent resource for teaching medical students. The fourth edition provides insight into recent advances and current issues in pulmonary medicine.
