Book Description

Nov. 16 2005 0323028063 978-0323028066 5
The new edition of this popular text has been extensively revised to reflect the latest changes in the field. The introductory chapters address the fundamental skills and protocols necessary for clinical assessment. Each disease is presented in relation to one of six clinical scenarios: atelectasis, consolidation, increased alveolar-capillary membrane thickness, bronchospasm, excessive bronchial secretions, and distal airway and alveolar weakening. Students are provided with an illustration of the major alterations of the lungs, the etiology of the disease, an overview of clinical manifestations, a discussion of management, and a series of self-assessment questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful for Respiratory Pathophysiology April 7 2007
By Judge - Published on Amazon.com
This is a really good book and very easy to understand. The chapters aren't too lengthy, just long enough to give the important aspects of each respiratory disease. I purchased this for my respiratory pathophysiology class and it covers everything from the etiology, manifestations, symptoms, lab workups, and treatment of all of the major respiratory diseases and syndromes. I highly recommend this book to those who are wanting or needing to know more about respiratory pathophysiology.

5.0 out of 5 stars All about the case studies. March 25 2012
By SlimJim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You are buying this book because you're probably an RN/RT student. Doesn't matter how I review this book, you have to buy it for school anyways. Regardless, here's my opinion. It's an easy ready... easier than Beachy or Mosby. I feel like it's a bit vague when giving information... doesn't feel text-bookie... feels light on information. Read the case studies, it's all about the case studies in this book. Every chapter is 50% info, 50% case study. It's an interesting layout too. What I mean is... you'll read a scenario, be given questions, then right next to the question is the answer. Nope, don't have to look in the back of the book or log into some publisher website. You're given this large... bookmark thing... that you use to cover the answers if you want to figure it out for yourself before reading the correct answer. It's interesting. Enjoy and good luck with school.
