Overview

Part of the Systems of the Body Series, this concise text offers coverage of the core knowledge required on the respiratory system. An ideal text for system-based, integrated courses, it stresses the relevance of basic science to clinical medicine — a clinical case is used to derive the learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter. It also prepares the student for early patient contact with a final section covering the major diseases of the system and their diagnosis and treatment.

• Integrated coverage of the structure, function, and major diseases of the respiratory system — highly suitable for systems courses

• Coverage of the basic science that is clinically driven — a common clinical presentation introduces each major topic

• Clinical cases that are used and explained in the chapter

• Coverage of major diseases of the respiratory system that equips students for early contact with patients

• A structure that encourages learning — objectives are defined at the beginning of the chapter, and self-assessment questions are provided at the end
