Overview

With an in-depth, clinical focus, this definitive new text teaches the basic anatomy of the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and renal systems. It also details the physiological principles underlying various therapeutic, diagnostic, and monitoring therapies and procedures — all with depth and precision in each subject area. Each chapter includes: introduction, learning objectives, key terms, numerous tables and full-color drawings, "Clinical Focus" boxes, "Concept Questions" sprinkled throughout, chapter summary, and references.

* Focused clinical coverage — the first to cover the subject with an in-depth and truly clinical focus.
• Beautifully illustrated full-color text — the only full-color respiratory care A&P text available!
• Thorough coverage of the renal system and its role in maintaining acid-base balance and fluid volume as well as its effect on the health of the cardiopulmonary system.
• Extensive cardiac section, including entire chapters on electrophysiology and ECG.
• "Clinical Focus" boxes strategically placed within each chapter apply concepts from the classroom to clinical situations and challenge students to consider how their understanding of physiology will carry over to clinical practice.
• "Concept Questions" throughout help students immediately evaluate their comprehension and retention of material.
• Progressive learning objectives designed to challenge, provoke thought, and make learning interactive.
• Key terms bolded throughout and defined at the back of the book, making learning and reviewing easier for the reader.
• Student-friendly writing style presents challenging material in an engaging and understandable way.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan A Trombley, AAS, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: Comprehensively updated and revised, this second edition of a concise overview of the pulmonary system continues to be an outstanding reference for healthcare professionals and students alike.
Purpose: The book provides a physiological foundation to support clinical practice. While it presents basic anatomy of the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and renal systems, it focuses mainly on in-depth explanations of the physiological processes.
Audience: This revision is a valuable resource for respiratory therapy students, practicing therapists, critical care nurses, and medical students. It would also be useful for those who manage and coordinate respiratory care plans.
Features: Each chapter begins with a content outline, learning objectives, and a list of key terms. Clinical focus boxes situate the subject matter in a clinical context to help students adopt modes of thinking to reinforce theory with practice. The bolded medical terms are defined in context rather than in a separate glossary, helping understanding.
Assessment: This second edition is a must have. It is well written and the author goes to great lengths to present traditionally difficult material in easy to understand concepts. This book is highly recommended and would be a valued resource in any medical or college/university library.

I found the author’s writing style succinct and easy to read. I think this textbook should be useful adjunct for students in reparatory therapy programs that use problem-based learning, and for clinicians interested in learning more about the physiologic basis of respiratory care.
