Physiology of Respiration

Second Edition

Michael P. Hlastala and Albert J. Berger

  • A better balance between the two fundamental aspects of respiratory physiology, gas exchange in the lung and neural control of breathing, than any other student text.
  • More comprehensive coverage than the average text.
  • A truly integrative physiological account of the subject.
  • Simplified mathematical analysis in the second edition, and a reorganization and consolidation of some chapters that makes the book easier to use.
  • Careful pedagogy - numerous simple illustrations, lucid explanations of basic principles, a writing style that flows easily from one topic to another, useful problem-solving exercises, and well-chosen, clinical correlations.
