Summary
The Respiratory System at a Glance has been thoroughly updated in line with current practice guidelines and new techniques to provide a highly illustrated and comprehensive guide to normal lung structure and function, as well as associated pathophysiology. Each topic has been fully revised and is accompanied by clear diagrams to encapsulate essential knowledge.Reflecting changes to the content, teaching and assessment methods used in medical education, this new edition now includes more information on acid base and its clinical ramifications, further detail on defence mechanisms and immunology, and also features online access to clinical cases and flashcards. The Respiratory System at a Glance: Integrates basic and clinical science - ideal for integrated and systems-based courses Includes both the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of the respiratory system Is fully revised and updated to reflect current practice guidelines and new therapies Provides online clinical cases, brand new flashcards, and MCQs Includes a companion website at www.ataglanceseries.com/respiratory featuring interactive multiple choice questions and digital flashcards
