In addition to teaching respiratory students the basic anatomy and physiology of the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and renal systems, this resource explains the physiological principles underlying common therapeutic, diagnostic and monitoring therapies and procedures. It focuses on applied physiology, covering anatomy to the extent that it relates to physiological functions. In-depth discussions explore key respiratory physiology subjects important to respiratory students. This book stresses clinical applications throughout with its thought-provoking learning objectives and Concept Questions, Clinical Focus scenarios, and realistic illustrations.
