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.
