ARTP have collaborated on and will be publishing the excellent new textbook 'Physiology and Practice of Pulmonary Function' by Prof. Mike Hughes.
This book is must for all labs.
The book describes the patho-physiology of the respiratory system.
It explains the physiological basis of adult lung function tests and their application in Clinical Medicine.
Topics covered include:
Spirometry and maximum expiratory flow
Lung volume and airway resistance
Transfer factor [TLCO, KCO]
PaO2, SaO2, PaCO2, pH: respiratory failure: O2 therapy
Exercise (field and laboratory tests)
Breathlessness and breathing control
Sleep disordered breathing
Pulmonary function in Obstructive, Restrictive and Vascular diseases
Sections on Reference values, Interpretation of results, Good laboratory practice, and Education and Training give guidance for those working in, or supervising, Pulmonary Function Laboratories.
