Book Description

June 24 2008 1416050345 978-1416050346 5
Concise and easy to read, this completely updated new edition correlates basic pathophysiologic principles with the radiologic, pathologic, and clinical aspects of disease to provide an integrated, user-friendly approach to the study of pulmonary medicine. In addition to detailed text, case-based questions cover topics including interpretation of pulmonary function tests, physiologic data, and results of arterial blood gas testing. More than 120 high-quality images complement the discussion of specific diseases and provide a clear framework for understanding difficult pulmonary concepts. The text provides updated coverage of diagnostic modalities in pulmonary disease, as well as management of asthma, lung cancer, respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, and other important pulmonary diseases. A new, web-based interactive learning tool box offers additional radiographic images, audio clips of lung sounds, and self-assessment questions modeled after the questions found on the USMLE exams. In print and online, this is an essential resource for mastering the foundations of pulmonary medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucid Explanation of Pulmonary Medicine June 14 2010
By Eugene A. Obah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the book enjoyable, even though I have been a practicing physician for more than 25 years and have been teaching internal medicine for almost 20 years. Before my purchase, I wanted a book that reviewed key principles of pulmonary diorders, which I could use as framework to organize disparate pulmonary diseases. The book meets that objective.

Aimed at medical students, it is cearly written, making comprehension easy. It emphasizes principles, allowing the reader to build his or her knowledge on a solid foundation. I found it easy to use the principles to classify various pulmonary diseases, making them easy to understand and recall. The notes or summaries at the margins afford both a quick preview and review of the salient points in each chapter.

I believe the book can be enhanced by adding three or four clinical cases at
the end of each chapter to give the reader an opportunity to apply his or her knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal book April 6 2009
By C. Rangel - Published on Amazon.com
I used this book for my second year pulmonary pathophysiology course and I have not been able to find another text written as well. The chapters are organized into easy to understand chapters that are not too long but the details in the text are definitely more than sufficient. I love the side notes in the margins of the text as little reminders of what is important and the discussions about PFTs in the end and the intro normal physiology allowed me to get an amazing grasp of the material.

well written and thorough, more comprehensive than the typical med student text. Still referring back to it at the end of my third year.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a good book overall in terms of clarity and hitting most of the main points, although there are times when I feel the chapters may be lacking on specific details and it maybe too broad.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource Nov. 10 2013
By Courtney Detwiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for learning about pulmonary disease. I'm a second year medical student and this book was assigned as part of our curriculum for pulmonary. I found it incredibly helpful. It organizes information well and isn't too wordy. Great detail about how to determine lung volumes, V/Q mismatch, etc. as well as elaboration about various obstructive, restrictive and infectious pulmonary diseases.
