    Pulmonary Physiology and Pathophysiology, 2e

    An Integrated, Case-Based Approach

    John B. West

    The Second Edition of Pulmonary Physiology and Pathophysiology presents normal and abnormal pulmonary function in the same case-based format that has made the first edition a favorite among students. Each chapter begins with a clinical case study of diseases typically seen by practitioners. The cases are followed by a discussion and breakdown of the physiology, pathophysiology, anatomy, pharmacology, and pathology for each disease, and a question-and-answer section. This edition has an infectious diseases chapter, updates on asthma pathogenesis and bronchodilators, and user-friendly features such as chapter openers, chapter outlines, "key points" summary boxes, and board-formatted questions and answers.

    West Fisiología respiratoria. Fundamentos, 10e

    John B. West, Andrew M. Luks
    West Fisiología respiratoria. Fundamentos es un título popular y bien posicionado, considerado una obra de referencia en fisiología respiratoria. Su primera edición se publicó hace ya 40 años, y se ha traducido a 15 idiomas. La obra ofrece a estudiantes de medicina, residentes de diferentes especialidades (neumología, medicina interna y cuidados del paciente en estado crítico) y otros profesionales de la salud (terapeutas ventilatorios y personal de enfermería), los fundamentos del funcionamiento del sistema respiratorio. La obra se compone de 10 capítulos que abordan la anatomía básica, los conceptos físicos y dinámicos de la ventilación y el paso del oxígeno a la sangre por difusión, así como las diferentes condiciones que se experimentan en el funcionamiento de este sistema como el flujo sanguíneo, las relaciones ventilación/perfusión, la dinámica de fluidos de la sangre, la mecánica ventilatoria, el control de la función ventilatoria y dos interesantes temas de aplicación de conocimientos: el sistema respiratorio bajo estrés y pruebas de función pulmonar.
