Respiratory Physiology of Newborn Mammals: A Comparative Perspective emphasizes common trends among mammalian species in an effort to extract general rules about both the structure and the mechanisms of neonatal respiration. Jacopo P. Mortola outlines the key aspects of developmental respiratory physiology in the perinatal period. Based on what is learned from interspecies comparisons, Mortola addresses the question of how pulmonary ventilation fulfills the metabolic requirements of the newborn infant. Exceptions to the rules illuminate adaptations to particular tasks or conditions. Each chapter concludes with interspecies comparisons and clinical implications for the medically or zoologically oriented reader. The combination of developmental and comparative perspectives offers an original contribution to the field of developmental physiology.

The book is divided into five chapters: "Gestation and Birth," Metabolic and Ventilatory Requirements," "Mechanical Behavior of the Respiratory Pump," "Reflex Control of the Breathing Pattern," and "Changes in Temperature and Respiratory Gases." It will be of value to researchers, clinicians, and students interested in developmental physiology, comparative biology, and zoology, as well as neonatalogists and pediatric pulmonologists who are interested in alternative perspectives on current clinical practice.

About the Author:

Jacopo P. Mortola, M.D., is a professor of physiology at McGill University.

Review:

"Respiratory Physiology of Newborn Mammals is a fine piece of scholarship and imaginative analysis. It will be highly valued by professional physiologists and other biological scientists, both for its data summaries and its ideas."

(Donald Bartlett, Jr., M.D., Dartmouth Medical School)

"Dr. Mortola is an international and much-respected expert regarding comparative physiology in newborn mammals. This book is an extremely thorough analysis of complex physiological changes occurring across a wide variety of species from the smallest to the largest animals."

(W. Alan Hodson, M.D., University of Washington Medical Center)

"This book provides one of the most comprehensive compilations of studies of neonatal respiration available under one cover, making it an invaluable reference tool in the field of comparative respiratory physiology."

(Doody's Health Sciences Review Journal)
