Physiology of Respiration Summary


Physiology of Respiration by Michael P. Hlastala (Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, and of Medicine, Adjunct Professor of Bioengineering)

This text explains how the respiratory system functions and provides a framework for understanding many respiratory diseases. It was developed as a working text with problem-solving exercises for students. The book covers pulmonary anatomy and microstructure, mechanics, gas exchange, acid-base balance, and control mechanisms. Unlike other texts, it strikes a good balance between the principles of pulmonary gas exchange, neural control, and integrative aspects of respiration.

Physiology of Respiration Reviews



"an excellent reference for the student in respiratory therapy and other allied health disciplines. I would also recommend it as a review tool for the experienced practitioner." -- Canadian Journal of Respiratory Therapy


"This small educational book 'written with the student in mind' provides a state-of-the-art knowledge in the broad subject of respiratory physiology. In summary, this book is highly didactic. It is to be recommended not only to pre- and postgraduate medical students, but also to clinicians involved in respiratory and critical care medicine." -- European Respiratory Journal
