Applied Respiratory Physiology: With Special Reference to Anaesthesia is designed to bridge the gap between pure respiratory physiology and the treatment of patients. Chapters discuss topics on the physical and structural features of gas exchange in the respiratory system; mechanisms of pulmonary ventilation; distribution of the pulmonary blood flow; and gas diffusion, carbon dioxide, and oxygen. Physiologists, anesthesiologists, and physicians will find the book invaluable.
