Pulmonary pathophysiology : the essentials by John B West( Book )

128 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A companion monograph to the author's Respiratory Physiology, which examines normal respiratory function, this text focuses on the function of the diseased lung. The text offers an overview of the most essential information regarding disease states of the lung, emphasizing structure and function. A question and answer section is included. This seventh edition offers more coverage of lung cancer and infectious diseases affecting the lungs, and has more tables to aid in rapid review. All questions now conform to current USMLE format, and answers include rationales for all answer choices. -- From publisher
Best and Taylor's physiological basis of medical practice by Charles Herbert Best( Book )

55 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ventilation/blood flow and gas exchange by John B West( Book )

High altitude medicine and physiology by Michael Ward( Book )

48 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology : an integrated, case-based approach by John B West( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High altitude and man by John B West( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading authorities on high-altitude physiology contribute to this work, which is divided into three sections: Man at Extreme Altitude; Sleep and Restoration at High Altitude; and Physiology of Permanent Residents of High Altitude. Based on a symposium on physiology at high altitude sponsored by the American Physiological Society, the volume includes several chapters on the achievements of the 1981 American Medical Research Expedition to Mt. Everest, where the first physiological measurements at altitudes above 8,000 meters were recorded. With growing interest in the study of human performance in these conditions, this text marks a lasting achievement in high-altitude physiology
High life : a history of high-altitude physiology and medicine by John B West( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of high-altitude physiology and medicine is such a rich and colorful topic that it is surprising no one has undertaken a comprehensive account before. From the early balloonists to various high-altitude expeditions, culminating in the great feat of climbing Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen, the basic biological challenge of hypoxia has underpinned the human experience at high altitude. Of key importance in several areas of medicine including pulmonology, critical care, anesthesiology and cardiology, this topic is also of general interest to other life sciences such as biology and ecology, because hypoxia is encountered by many organisms throughout the animal kingdom. High Life covers the topic from its earliest beginnings with the Greeks to the last two or three years, and highlights many geographical locations, such as China, Japan, India and Russia. Including 185 illustrations, over 800 references, and three appendixes detailing the chronology of main events, databases of high-altitude publications, tables of high-altitude locations, a list of classical books on the topic and narratives of classical and modern high-altitude expeditions, this book is a comprehensive reference text which should be of value to anyone interested in high altitude and hypoxia

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

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 15 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 every aspect 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
