Respiratory Physiology is widely considered the "gold standard" textbook for respiratory physiology.

This compact, concise, and easy-to-read text is now in its fully updated Eighth edition. New user-friendly features include Key Points boxes at the end of each chapter and USMLE-style questions and answers with full explanations for all answer choices.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text, plus animations that illustrate difficult physiologic concepts.


1. Structure and function—how the architecture of the lung subserves its function
2. Ventilation—how gas gets to the alveoli
3. Diffusion—how gas gets across the blood-gas barrier
4. Blood flow and metabolism—how the pulmonary circulation removes gas from the lung and alters some metabolites
5. Ventilation-perfusion relationships—how matching of gas and blood determines gas exchange
6. Gas transport by the blood—how gases are moved to the peripheral tissues
7. Mechanics of breathing—how the lung is supported and moved
8. Control of ventilation—how gas exchange is regulated
9. Respiratory system under stress—how gas exchange is accomplished during exercise, at low and high pressures, and at birth
10. Tests of pulmonary function—how respiratory physiology is applied to measure lung function
