Reflecting this change, this edition is more clinically focused, with a greater emphasis on the pathophysiology of pulmonary disease, which is now accorded a separate section.

In this new edition, Dr. Nunn, upon his retirement, passes the torch to a practicing clinician with research interests, Dr. Andrew Lumb. Reflecting this change, this edition is more clinically focused, with a greater emphasis on the pathophysiology of pulmonary disease, which is now accorded a separate section.
Readers will find this reorganization of material welcome.
New chapters discuss specifically airway diseases, and, in an interesting conjunction, breathing in closed environments, ranging from closed-circle anesthesia to space habitation. At the same time, core information, such as the classic description of oxygen's journey from environment to mitochondria, is preserved from earlier editions, including the beloved elegant line drawings and diagrams, which prove that the current fad of multicolored text and figures is not necessary to convey information effectively.
Considering the wide range of disciplines now important to pulmonary physiology from molecular biology to physics , keeping a single-authored text up-to-date is a daunting task indeed. Happily, Dr. Lumb is usually up to the challenge. For example, the chapter on the effects of anesthesia on the respiratory system nicely summarizes the recent literature, a feat that some recent editions of standard anesthesia texts have been unable to achieve.
Although discussion of significant developments in other areas such as recent work detailing the importance of nongravitational factors in determining pulmonary blood flow is sometimes omitted, this does not detract from the overall utility of the text. Plenty of texts talk about ventilators in excruciating detail, but where else can you learn about earth's prebiotic atmosphere a sort of steamy seltzer , how oxygen tension was monitored in diesel-powered submarines during long dives, cigarettes wouldn't ignite , or why the supersonic Concorde was designed with small windows to slow the rate of decompression at high altitudes in case of window failure?
In these days of gene therapy and molecular medicine, it is frightening how little many in the current generation of medical students and residents understand about basic principles of respiratory physiology. This perhaps should not be surprising, considering that many of their teachers, who are often more concerned with ion channels or clinical practice, do not understand them either. For this reason, this wonderful book is more important that ever.
Every anesthesia resident should read it, and every anesthesiologist should have a copy nearby. Get Permissions. Get Citation Citation.

Includes functional anatomy, mechanics, control of breathing, ventilation, circulation, ventilation-perfusion matching, diffusion, carbon dioxide and oxygen, and non-respiratory functions of the lung.
Discusses the effects of pregnancy, exercise, sleep, altitude, pressure, drowning, smoking, anaesthesia, hypocapnia, hypercarbia, hypoxia, hyperoxia, and anaemia on respiratory physiology. Explores specific clinical disorders such as ventilatory failure, airways disease, pulmonary vascular disease, parenchymal lung disease, and acute lung injury, as well as the physiological basis of current therapies, including artificial ventilation, extrapulmonary gas exchange, and lung transplantation.
Chapter on Parenchymal Lung Disease has been specifically expanded to include the physiology and pathology of the pleural space and lung cancer. Includes almost new references to the literature. English Copyright:
