The primary target audiences for this volume are pulmonologists, allergists, graduate students, thoracic surgeons, and their assistants, in training and in practice, who evaluate and treat patients who have or may have respiratory damage or disease. Unique insights into the interpretation of spirometric, lung volume, diffusing capacity, and other measurements commonly made in pulmonary function laboratories. Normal values are dependent on gender, age, and body size. Review of the best available reference equations and selection of the optimal equations, not only for the “White” populations but also, for the first time, for the non-caucasian populations of the world. New ways to assess the effectiveness of aerosol bronchodilator drugs on obstructive airways disease in the laboratory, since current practices fail to identify nearly half of the statistically significant responders. New ways of interpreting spirometric values of cigarette smokers to better identify and inform those who, though still within the wide range of normal, are at greater risk. Ten interesting cases to guide interpreting pulmonary function tests.

This book represents a comprehensive review of the most recent developments in paediatric pulmonary function testing and their clinical applications in common paediatric respiratory disorders. The first section reviews the current lung function tests used in infants and toddlers who are by nature unable to cooperate with most testing procedures. It describes the methodologies, provides normal values where available, and gives advice for data interpretation. The second section deals with the classic adult-type pulmonary function tests and their application in the semi-cooperative or cooperative.

Respiratory problems are the most common cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance. For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing. The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including: The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop Differences between TLCO and KCO Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2 The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for those seeking a basic grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for readers completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

This pocket-sized handbook presents the many commonly performed tests of respiratory function, investigations that are to respiratory medicine what the ECG is to cardiology. Up to one third of emergency admissions are related to breathing difficulties of one sort or another, and a variety of diagnostic investigations are required. Familiarity with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters is therefore a fundamental skill to be acquired during training and improved upon throughout clinical practice. Providing invaluable 'hands-on' guidance for trainees in anaesthetics, medicine and pulmonary function, and also acting as a useful ready reference for the experienced clinician, Making Sense of Lung Function Tests places lung function in a clinical context using 'real-life' examples. The book integrates an understanding of the physiological principles underlying lung function with their interpretation in clinical practice. In reading Making Sense of Lung Function Tests the trainee physician will improve knowledge of the mechanical measurements of lung function, gain understanding of lung capacity and flow rates, be able to monitor the effectiveness of respiration, e.g. through blood gas analysis, and, as a result, will learn quickly how to manage patients requiring lung function tests appropriately and with confidence.
