The new edition of this popular text has been extensively revised to reflect the latest changes in the field. The introductory chapters address the fundamental skills and protocols necessary for clinical assessment. Each disease is presented in relation to one of six clinical scenarios: atelectasis, consolidation, increased alveolar-capillary membrane thickness, bronchospasm, excessive bronchial secretions, and distal airway and alveolar weakening. Students are provided with an illustration of the major alterations of the lungs, the etiology of the disease, an overview of clinical manifestations, a discussion of management, and a series of self-assessment questions.
