McGraw-Hill's Pocket Guide to Lung Function Tests

The Pocket Guide to Lung Function Tests is a practical guide to implementing and interpreting test results for common respiratory problems. In contrast to many reference texts already on the market, this book caters for both specialists and non-specialists - focusing on essential practical information - with a clinical rather than physiological emphasis. It also explains the subject without recourse to complex equations that often intimidate non-specialist practitioners. Handy and compact in length, the book presents only pertinent details and is well-suited for quick reference and easy access in the surgery. This new edition, in addition to a general update, includes new tests and expanded sections on techniques that have been further developed since the previous edition.

"This book, which will fit in a white coat pocket, is an excellent companion for your rounds on the pulmonary floors and in the clinics. It is clearly written without too much scientific jargon. The authors have been careful to keep the book simple without too many formulas, although it is fairly complete and flows well. It deals with most of the pulmonary physiologic topics that you will come across during your work on medical, surgical, and pulmonary floors....The authors in this second edition have achieved their goal in simplifying the often mystifying and daunting topic of respiratory physiology applied to pulmonary function testing. This is one of the few books on the subject of pulmonary function testing I read cover to cover and it will fit well in my white coat pocket for pulmonary function rounds. 4 Stars!"--"Doody's Review Service" . .
