Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0781757487, Paperback)

Respiratory Physiology: A Clinical Approach offers a fresh new take on learning physiology in a systems-based curriculum. This book won the 2006 Dr. Frank H. Netter Award for Special Contributions to Medical Education, and Dr. Schwartzstein is a 2007 recipient of the Alpha Omega Alpha Distinguished Teacher Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Written by renowned and dynamic educators and featuring interactive animations, the book integrates functional anatomy, physiology, and pathology to build a conceptual understanding of respiratory system function. Emphasis is on elements of respiratory physiology that are crucial to understanding and managing clinical problems. A suite of 39 interactive animations accompanies the book. Sample animations can be viewed online: click here.

Respiratory Physiology: A Clinical Approach offers the following features: Writing style is clear, concise, reader-friendly, and conversational. A unique approach shows students how material fits together in the context of the respiratory system. Clinical correlations are integrated throughout the book to emphasize the application of knowledge to medical practice. Interactive animations are provided via accompanying CD and free student access on the Web. The animations illustrate clinical concepts described in the book, so students can actually see the effects of physiologic changes. Thought Questions are placed throughout each chapter to make learning more interactive, requiring students to test their ability to integrate the information presented. "Putting It Together" sections use clinical scenarios to highlight key concepts covered in the chapter. These sections appear at the end of each chapter. Special chapters unique to this type of monograph are featured, such as "Form and Function," "Respiratory Sensations," and "Exercise Physiology: A Tale of Two Pumps."
