The seventh edition of the most authoritative and comprehensive book published on lung function, now completely revised and restructured Lung function assessment is the central pillar of respiratory diagnosis. Most hospitals have lung function laboratories where patients are tested with a variety of physiological methods. The tests and techniques used are specialized and utilize the expertise of respiratory physicians, physiologists, and technicians. This new edition of the classic text on lung function is a theoretical textbook and practical manual in one that gives a comprehensive account of lung function and its assessment in healthy persons and those with all types of respiratory disorder, against a background of respiratory, exercise, and environmental physiology. It incorporates the technical and methodological recommendations for lung function testing of the American Thoracic Society and European Respiratory Society. Cotes' Lung Function, 7th Edition is filled with chapters covering respiratory surveys, respiratory muscles, neonatal assessment, exercise, sleep, high altitude, hyperbaria, the effects of cold and heat, respirable dusts, fumes and vapors, anesthesia, surgery, and respiratory rehabilitation. It also offers a compendium of lung function in selected individual diseases and is filled with more diagrams and illustrative cases than previous editions. The only text to cover lung function assessment from first principles including methodology, reference values, and interpretation Completely re-written in a contemporary style—includes user-friendly equations and more diagrams Covers the latest advances in the treatment of lung function, including a stronger clinical and practical bias and more on new techniques and equipment Keeps mathematical treatments to a minimum Cotes' Lung Function is an ideal guide for respiratory physicians and surgeons, staff of lung function laboratories, and others who have a professional interest in the function of the lungs at rest or on exercise and how it may be assessed. Physiologists, anthropologists, pediatricians, anesthetists, occupational physicians, explorers, epidemiologists, and respiratory nurses should also find the book useful.
150 ECG Cases

150 ECG Cases presents clinical problems in the shape of simple case histories together with the relevant ECG. Detailed answers concentrate on the clinical interpretation of the results and give advice on what to do. The book can be used as a standalone method of practising ECG interpretation, and even with the most difficult ECGs a beginner will be able to make an accurate description of the trace and will be guided towards the key aspects of the interpretation. The unique page size allows presentation of 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Several of the cases incorporate chest X-rays and coronary angiograms illustrating the appearances that are associated with various cardiac conditions. All the cases are graded in difficulty and are cross-referenced to the new editions of ECG Made Easy and ECG Made Practical for further information. This Fifth Edition has been re-ordered into two parts: Part 1 Everyday ECGs: The 75 ECGs in this section are examples of those commonly seen in clinical practice. There are several examples of the most important abnormalities, together with examples of common variations of normality. Part 2 More Challenging ECGs: The 75 ECGs in this section are more demanding and include ECG patterns seen less often in clinical practice. For this Fifth Edition over fifteen per cent new ECGs have been included, mainly to provide clearer examples, though the book deliberately retains some technically poor records to maintain a 'real-world' perspective
