Contents
  • Structure and function : how the architecture of the lung subserves its function
  • Ventilation : how gas gets to the alveoli
  • Diffusion : how gas gets across the blood-gas barrier
  • Blood flow and metabolism : how the pulmonary circulation removes gas from the lung and alters some metabolites
  • Ventilation-perfusion relationships : how matching of gas and blood determines gas exchange
  • Gas transport by the blood : how gases are moved to the peripheral tissues
  • Mechanics of breathing : how the lung is supported and moved
  • Control of ventilation : how gas exchange is regulated
  • Respiratory system under stress : how gas exchange is accomplished during exercise, at low and high pressures, and at birth
  • Tests of pulmonary function : how respiratory physiology is applied to measure lung function
  • Appendix A: Symbols, units, and equations
  • Appendix B: Answers.
