This latest addition to the well established
Principles and Practice series is a comprehensive review of the principles of ventilation and gas exchange in normal circumstances, and also chronic and acute reparatory failure. Valuable practical guidance is given on measuring pulmonary function during anaesthesia and muscle paralysis. Authored by an internationally respected specialist, and well illustrated throughout, the book includes the following key topics:


lung volumes


hyproxaemia and hypercapnia

reparatory mechanics during anaesthesia

blood flow

ventilation, circulation and gas exchange

measurement of ventilation

lung volume measurement

gas distribution

mechanics of the respiratory system

reference values

Respiratory Measurement will prove to be an essential guide for anaesthetists, intensivists, pulmonary physicians, and all health professionals seeking a better understanding of the techniques of lung function testing.
