4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. K. Kalami on 27 Mar. 2003
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book with clear explanations, graphs, diagrams and clinical pictures. Respiratory physiology is made very easy to understand and clinical procedures are well explained. 40 topics are included and are very well summarised making each one each quick to learn. The only down side to the book is that its in black and white.

Format: Paperback
The book is a good read, it has everything you would need to know as a medical student, however i have personally found books just as in depth and the same price that are far easier to read and are in colour. there are some great sections in the book as has been previsouly mentionned, however i did not find the layout particularly easy, and the fact that it is in black and white makes it quite boring when doing copious amounts of work from it (even with the funky tables charts and pictures)

This book was great for revision for my 1st year medical school exams. It also has plenty of information about disease which I am using in the 2nd year. A clear, concise summary of everything a medical student need to know about the Respiratory system with colourful, helpful diagrams.

The only downside is the lack of experimental evidence for the topics covered.

This book is a really good book for the basics of respiratory physiology/medicine. It's very concise and easy to read. It's lacking in colour though and I would not use it as my main text. It's definitely a basic/revision book, but I am guessing the title implies that. For the money it's a useful addition to your bookshelf though.

This book is an amazing guide to the respiratory system. It makes the journey so easy through clear diagrams and concise text. I would recommend this book as a revision guide and reference along with your core study books. It is a great book - if you want concise, and easy-to-understand this is the book for you!!

Format: Paperback
'The Respiratory System at a Glance' is succinct and detailed enough to help medical students know all they need to, at undergraduate level, about the respiratory system. Well laid out. Could maybe do with colour instead of two-tone illustrations. All in all, a very useful aid for undergrad medicine.

All in all, this isn't bad per say but I've seen better. It's good as a revision text but if you really want to get to grips with the Respiratory System, try the Crash Course series. I regret buying it because Crash Course was just a lot better with in depth explanations and more bang for your buck.
