Description - West's Respiratory Physiology by John B. West

Just as medical, nursing, and allied health students have done for more than 40 years, you can depend on Dr. West s classic text for learning respiratory physiology quickly, easily, and with "no fluff." The 10th Edition of West s Respiratory Physiology: The Essentials retains its outstanding qualities while also looking to the future of the field with the addition of Dr. Andrew Luks as co-author. Now updated and expanded to include clinical vignettes in each chapter, it also features new critical-thinking multiple-choice questions, videos based on the material in the book, and new information on key topics in respiratory physiology. In addition to its well-deserved reputation as the preferred text for students, this must-have resource is also ideal for residents and fellows in pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, and internal medicine as an excellent review for exams and certifications. Multimedia resources are available online to enhance learning. - New! Co-author Dr. Andrew Luks joins world-renowned author Dr. John B. West to continue the tradition of excellence and readability that students find so beneficial. - New! Clinical vignettes in each chapter emphasize how the physiology described in that chapter can be used in a clinical situation. - New! Multiple-choice questions require you to use reasoning and critical thinking abilities rather than strictly factual recall. - Fourteen 50-minute lectures closely based on the material in the book are available online, with links provided. - New information is included on blood flow and metabolism, gas transport by the blood, and the physiology of high altitude. - Answers to questions are covered thoroughly, including new questions on the clinical vignettes. - Animations available online expand on and clarify challenging sections of the text. - Helpful features include an appendix of important equations, chapter-opening learning objectives and introductory material, Key Concepts summaries at the end of each chapter, and online resources such as a question bank, videos, and more.
