Summary: This well-regarded text offers a thorough and innovative approach to the structure and function of the cardiopulmonary system. Written in an easy-to-understand style with a highly visual format, the text enhances the reader?s comprehension of difficult concepts. Chapters were reorganized into sections to better structure the presentation of essential and more advanced topics. Section I describes the anatomic structures of the respiratory system and covers the major c moreoncepts and mechanisms of respiratory physiology across the lifespan, including fetal and newborn gas exchange and circulation. Section II includes three new chapters on electrophysiology of the heart, standard 12-ECG system, and ECG interpretation. The Section also covers hemodynamic measurements and interpretations and the structure and function of the renal system. Section III covers the cardiopulmonary system during unusual environmental conditions (including a thorough discussion of the effects of exercise, high altitude, and high-pressure environments). Features New chapters 12-14 on electrophysiology of the heart, standard 12-lead system, and ECG interpretation with common cardiac arrhythmias Chapter summaries in narrative format to highlight major concepts Critical thinking questions related to Clinical Case Studies to help readers apply learning and develop problem-solving skills Important ventilation equations are grouped by chapter on the inside covers of the text New illustrations of common respiratory system pathologies


  • Updated and expanded with three new chapters and seven new appendices.
  • Increased coverage of the pediatric patient.
  • Additional application exercises and case studies to promote critical thinking.
  • NEW! New chapters 12-14 on the electrophysiology of the heart, ECG recording, wave forms and measurements, and common cardia arrhythmias.
  • NEW! Higher level applications questions added to the chapter review questions to help learners develop critical thinking skills.
  • NEW! Contents reorganized into three sections: I. The Cardiopulmonary Syste, II. Advanced Cardiopulmonary Essentials, and III. The Cardiopulmonary System During Unusual Environmental Conditions. This structure proceeds from essential physiology to more advanced physiology and applications. less
