This work provides practical, clinically relevant coverage of all types of pulmonary function testing as it applies to a host of disease conditions.

It is aimed at any reader with a basic knowledge of pulmonary physiology and provides a solid basis for administering and interpreting these tests.

The book also features over 40 illustrative cases that readers can use for self-testing and for reinforcing the principles discussed elsewhere in the book.
