"Millions of people live at high altitude and large numbers visit it for both recreational and work-related reasons. The diminished oxygen in the air causes a range of illnesses and various types of impairment of performance. This book sets out the physiological basis of these changes and discusses all aspects of high-altitude illnesses and their management."--Publisher description

The narrative ranges from the earliest beginnings of high-altitude physiology in Ancient Greece, through the early balloonists, the various high-altitude expeditions, and the unforgettable saga of climbing Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen, to the latest developments in the 1990s. The coverage is very broad both chronologically and geographically, with special sections devoted, for example, to China, Japan, India and Russia. The book is profusely illustrated with 185 illustrations and includes over 800 references. Along with collecting the narratives of some of the classical explorations and high-altitude expeditions, High Life: A History of High-Altitude Medicine is a comprehensive and scholarly reference resource. It will be appreciated by physiologists, exercise and sports medicine practitioners, pulmonologists, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, expedition physicians, trainers, and lay readers with an interest in the subject

Essays on the history of respiratory physiology by John B West( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book consists of 23 essays about prominent people and events in the history of respiratory physiology. It provides a first-hand chronicle of the advancements made in respiratory physiology starting with Galen and the beginnings of Western physiology. The volume covers many aspects of the evolution of this important area of knowledge: pulmonary circulation, Boyle's Law, pulmonary capillaries and alveoli, morphology, gas exchange and blood flow, mechanics, control of ventilation, and comparative physiology. The book emphasizes societal and philosophical aspects of the history of science. Although it concentrates on physiology, it also describes how cultural movements, such as The Enlightenment, shaped the researchers discussed
Respiratory physiology : people and ideas by John B West( Book )

10 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Present-day respiratory physiology stems largely from the explosion of ideas which took place during and after World War II. A number of the major players are still active, but the opportunity to prepare a personal history of this branch of medicine will soon be lost. In a sense then, this book offers an exceptional, even unique, opportunity. We are offered a first-hand chronicle of the advancements made in respiratory physiology in the course of this century by one of the principal figures in the field. The volume covers every aspect of the evolution of this important area of knowledge: morphology, gas exchange and blood flow, mechanics, control of ventillation, and comparative physiology. Some of the chapters are personal accounts of the development of respiratory physiology as observed by the author. It is hoped that what is lost in objectivity by this approach is more than made up by the captivating insights provided by the author into the process of scientific research and discovery
