Thoroughly updated, the Sixth Edition covers the essential information in respiratory physiology in a well-organized, concise format. Respiratory Physiology: The Essentials is an introductory text written by Dr. West, a well-respected leader in the field. Updated sections include pulmonary capillaries, diffusion of carbon dioxide, hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction, pulmonary edema, and a new chapter focusing on control of ventilation. Numerous illustrations, improved two-color diagrams, self-study review questions, and a helpful index detailing symbols, units, and equations help facilitate rapid learning of the material. All of the diagrams have been improved by adding a second color.

Doody's Book Review Service, 28-APR-08, Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RRT, AE-C, William Beaumont Hospitals -- "This eighth edition continues the gold standard tradition of its predecessors. It is well written and well laid out. Dr. West takes the complex topic of respiratory physiology, breaks it down into its individual components, and writes the specifics in a very simple, easy to understand language. This is a must-have book not only for medical and respiratory care students but for university, college, and hospital libraries."-Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 98; 5 Stars)
