  Description: Pulmonary Function Testing: A Practical Approach, Third Edition covers the most commonly performed pulmonary function tests in an engaging and easily accessible format. This new edition contains updated material including the latest guidelines and recommendations from the American Thoracic Society, the American Association for Respiratory Care, and the European Respiratory Society. Including new and expanded chapters, covering maximal inspiratory and expiratory pressures, pediatrics, blood gases, and reference values, this text is an ideal guide for both classroom learning and application in the clinical setting.

Each chapter reviews a particular pulmonary function test or common group of tests. Background information and chapter features includes: • Relevant Physiology
• Pertinent Background Information
• Technical Factors
• Relevant Instrumentation
• Respiratory Calculations
• Patient Cases
• Self-assessment Questions
• References

Instructor Resources include an Instructora??s Manual, PowerPoint Presentations, TestBank, and an Image Bank.
