The seventh edition of the most authoritative and comprehensive book published on lung function, now completely revised and restructured

Lung function assessment is the central pillar of respiratory diagnosis. Most hospitals have lung function laboratories where patients are tested with a variety of physiological methods. The tests and techniques used are specialized and utilize the expertise of respiratory physicians, physiologists, and technicians. This new edition of the classic text on lung function is a theoretical textbook and practical manual in one that gives a comprehensive account of lung function and its assessment in healthy persons and those with all types of respiratory disorder, against a background of respiratory, exercise, and environmental physiology. It incorporates the technical and methodological recommendations for lung function testing of the American Thoracic Society and European Respiratory Society.

Cotes' Lung Function, 7th Edition is filled with chapters covering respiratory surveys, respiratory muscles, neonatal assessment, exercise, sleep, high altitude, hyperbaria, the effects of cold and heat, respirable dusts, fumes and vapors, anesthesia, surgery, and respiratory rehabilitation. It also offers a compendium of lung function in selected individual diseases and is filled with more diagrams and illustrative cases than previous editions.

  • The only text to cover lung function assessment from first principles including methodology, reference values, and interpretation
  • Completely re-written in a contemporary style—includes user-friendly equations and more diagrams
  • Covers the latest advances in the treatment of lung function, including a stronger clinical and practical bias and more on new techniques and equipment
  • Keeps mathematical treatments to a minimum

Cotes' Lung Function is an ideal guide for respiratory physicians and surgeons, staff of lung function laboratories, and others who have a professional interest in the function of the lungs at rest or on exercise and how it may be assessed. Physiologists, anthropologists, pediatricians, anesthetists, occupational physicians, explorers, epidemiologists, and respiratory nurses should also find the book useful.
