Product Description

Review

FIVE STARS FROM DOODY'S REVIEW SERVICE! Entering its fifth decade, this book has been used in conjunction with Dr. West's lectures for medical and allied health students. It pays careful attention to keeping the material understandable, concise, yet detailed -- which is why previous editions have been held in such high esteem by thousands of readers who have used it as a primer, an additional study aid, and a board prep resource...The author is an unquestioned expert on respiratory physiology. Respiratory physiology is a very challenging subject and this book helps students quickly develop a fundamental understanding of the respiratory system...[It] is a must-have book not only for medical and respiratory care students, but also for university, college, and hospital libraries. --Doody's Review Service

This is the only book that my physiology lecturer told to buy. Even though it looks small, the contents are exactly what is required for this module. Explanations are clear, and make the understanding of the topic rather straight-forward. The topics are logically divided and the chapters are in the right order. MCQs at the end of each chapter allow for self-check. Also, some of the calculations that are basic to understanding of the topic have a separate appendix at the end with the formulas and sample questions.
I would highly recommend it to any med student for respiratory physiology module.

They say good things come in small packages. Well it just happens to be true. a tiny book but gives you all the information you need on the difficult subject of respiratory physiology.The topics are well divided and there are frequent clinical examples. The diagrams reinforce and explain the text which can be confusing. I read the whole thing in one sitting. This is the main book of choice for answering those tricky questions that your consultant asks!!!!!

There's no doubt that this book is a good revision aid for anaesthetics exam. However, when it comes to everyday clinical practice, it is not an easy read and does not offer solutions to clinical dilemmas.
I do not recommend this for respiratory physicians, as I found it if little clinical use.

I must say, I've only bought the book, because the previous version got good reviews.
I find this book very useful to brush up what you've learned during physiology and patophysiology classes.
On the pro side: compact and lightweight, still tremendous amount of information inside, plus online content (key sticker inside).
I would give it 4,5 STARS - if I could - since some areas are not really deep and you may need to do some research, although very few!
If you are interested in reviewing these areas without the need of huge textbooks order instantly!
Be warned, size may be deceiving: small but not an easy thing to read! :D

This is another of my favourite physiology books - really really good.
I learned a lot from this & haven't found another resp book as good.
It's very small & thin, so not a massive over-detailed book. I really recommend this for understand physiology of the lungs. Also, it helped me a lot to understand pathology once I knew physiology of healthy lungs.

As always an excellent read. In the highly physiological field that is Respiratory Medicine I find that this volume and its companion, Pulmonary Pathophysiology, provide a first taste into the field that can hardly be improved upon.

Information that might be expanded upon (after all, such a small volume could never pretend to be comprehensive) is readily identifiable and so might be readily complemented by further reading.

Maintains within LWW's wonderful tradition of small succinct books intended for easy learning.

This book is pretty amazing. It covers the needed concept in a very simple manner. If you just take time to read it I think the book is worth a purchase! :)
