From the Back Cover:

The Respiratory System at a Glance is a concise, readily accessible introduction and revision text for medical students. Part of the at a Glance series, the book uses one page of illustrations and one page of text per topic to explain subjects in an easy to understand and clear manner.

The text begins with an overview of the anatomy, gas laws, lung mechanics and circulation, progressing onto control of breathing, complications of development and lung immunology. A new chapter on History and Examination preceeds a small section on investigations, before exploring the most common and important respiratory diseases, such as Asthma, COPD, and Pnuemonia. Related topics such as smoking, mechanical ventialtion and a case study section complete the book.

This book is an invaluable resource for all medical students, as well as students of nursing and other allied health professions who need an introduction to the respiratory system. It will also be an indispensable resource and revision aid for junior doctors and respiratory nurses.
