A Synopsis of Respiratory Diseases discusses the concept of pulmonary physiology and its diseases. This book is composed of 10 chapters that address the development and treatment of tuberculosis. Some of the topics covered in the book are the essential function of the lungs; transfer of gases; blood gas analysis; definition of acute respiratory failure; different diseases of the nose; ailments of the larynx; conditions of spasm or obstruction of the larynx; types of ventilators; control of respiration; and differential lung function. Other chapters describe the physiological instances leading to carbon dioxide narcosis and some diseases of the trachea. The discussion then shifts to the etiology, histology, and bacteriology of chronic bronchitis. The concluding chapters are devoted to the definition and treatment of emphysema, as well as the diagnosis of tumors of the bronchus. The book can provide useful information to doctors, students, and researchers.
