Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition

Elena Kourteli, Jonathan Dakin
e altri

editore: Apple Academic Press Inc.

pagine: 204

Respiratory problems are the most common cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance. For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing. The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including: The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop Differences between TLCO and KCO Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2 The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for those seeking a basic grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for readers completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation

Including Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications

Brian J. Whipp, Darryl Y. Sue
e altri

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 592

Discover what exercise testing can reveal about cardiopulmonary, vascular, and muscular health. Now in its Fifth Edition, "Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation" continues to deliver timely information on the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise and their relevance to clinical medicine. The text begins by explaining the processes by which cells receive oxygen and dispose of carbon dioxide produced as a byproduct of exercise and metabolism. By measuring gas exchange, we can better evaluate cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary functioning, as well as cellular respiration. Detailed discussions explore various types of exercise intolerance, their effects on test results, and clinical diagnoses. Using real-world cases, the text illustrates how cardiopulmonary exercise testing can evaluate the functional competency of each component in the coupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascular system. Expert authors' comments, analysis, and conclusions for each case, help to improve readers' interpretive and diagnostic skills. This in-depth resource provides: updated content and new graphics present the most current information in a reader-friendly format; updated flow charts detail clinical presentations and differential diagnosis; more than 80 case presentations improve diagnostic accuracy; normal test values for a wide range of patient groups provide a basis for comparison and help to identify abnormalities; and companion website includes the complete text, PLUS 30 additional case presentations.

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 432

Already established as a 'classic' in the field, Clinical Tests of Respiratory Function presents an authoritative yet accessible account of this complex area, fusing the basic principles of respiratory physiology with applications in clinical practice across a wide range of disorders. This third edition has been extensively revised to reflect advances in our understanding of respiratory function at rest, on exercise and during sleep, together with technological developments related to investigation and treatment. Now subdivided into four practical sections, users can easily pick their desired topic, from the commonly used tests and their underlying physiological mechanisms to abnormalities of function in both respiratory and non-respiratory diseases. The book concludes with a helpful section on test interpretation, new to this edition. This eagerly awaited revision will quickly find a place on the bookshelves of all practitioners - clinicians and laboratory investigators - who have an interest in respiratory function. From the reviews of the second edition: 'skillfull achieves lucid descriptions of complex physiological concepts ...a classsic within the pulmonary literature, providing a concise yet complete account of pulmonary physiology from a clinical perspective' British Journal of Hospital Medicine 'very useful...the book is authoritative, comprehensive, extensively referenced and - for a book on this topic - easy to read and understand' Thorax

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Breathing Pattern Disorders

Christopher Gilbert, Dinah Bradley
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 288

Functional breathing pattern disorders (BPD - the extreme of which is hyperventilation) disturb the biochemistry of the body, often leading to respiratory alkalosis. They are extremely common, mainly affecting women and frequently go unrecognized by clinicians. Research shows that BPDs can be responsible for causing, or helping to maintain, a vast range of symptoms including muscular pain (particularly involving the thorax and neck area), inefficient motor control, reduced core stability, tremors, and tetany, feelings of anxiety, easy fatiguability, sleep disturbances, dysphagia, epigastric pain, IBS, parasthesia, palpitations, dizziness, disturbed vision, and a variety of circulatory symptoms resulting from smooth muscle constriction. BPDs are easily tested for and - with patient cooperation - are commonly correctable via a combination of manual therapy and breathing rehabilitation strategies.

Exercise Testing

New Concepts for the New Century

Ezra A. Amsterdam, Myrvin H. Ellestad

editore: Kluwer Academic Publishers

pagine: 183

Since it was introduced less than 100 years ago, analysis of the circulatory response to exercise as a measure of cardiac function has undergone remarkable development. Most recently this approach has incorporated the burgeoning technology of the last half of the 20th century to meet the physiological and diagnostic needs of scientist and clinicians. The ease of administration, economy and abundant data that characterize exercise testing for its relative staying power as the most frequently utilized noninvasive method of cardiovascular evaluation. The basic modalities of exercise electrocardiography of treadmill and bicycle have been extended by noninvasive cardiac imaging techniques, including scintigraphy and echocardiography, that have provided new insights in myocardial function during exertion and pharmacologic stress. At the same time, traditional exercise electrocardiography has also been refined by innovations that have broadened its applications. Exercise Testing: Current Concepts and Recent Advances affords the reader a state-of-the-art presentation of the diverse and expanding methods of exercise testing and their roles in patient management. The contributors to this volume include individuals who have made seminal contributions to the field during the last several decades. Indeed, it is legitimate to designate this group as a 'Who's Who of Exercise Testing'. It is our hope that this book will enhance the reader's understanding of contemporary methods of exercise testing, as well as provide a glimpse into future directions of this science, that this knowledge is applied to optimal diagnosis and management of our patients.
