Beginning with an introduction to the range of tests available, it then offers clear explanations of the physiological and mechanical concepts that form the basis of the tests and their interpretation. The remainder of the book describes the application of tests in the clinical situation in the investigation of lung disease and its by: 8. They have successfully developed a textbook that takes its readers from the physiological basis of all aspects of pulmonary function testing, through the mechanical limitations of measurement techniques, aspects of evaluation of breathlessness and breathing control, to the often neglected areas of interpretation and presentation of results.

Covering common pulmonary function tests and techniques, Ruppel's Manual of Pulmonary Function Testing, 10th Edition is not only an authoritative, on-the-job reference, but an excellent resource for preparing for the CPFT (certified pulmonary function technologist) and RPFT (registered pulmonary function technologist) specialty credentialing examinations. It includes information on pathophysiology, equipment, and quality assurance, so you can develop the testing Cited by:

Pulmonary function testing and the physiological principles that underlie it are often poorly understood by medical students, residents, fellows and graduate students training in the medical sciences. One reason is that students tend to get overwhelmed by the basic mathematical descriptions that explain the working.   The field of pulmonary gas exchange is mature, with the basic principles developed more than 60 years ago. Arterial blood gas measurements (tensions and concentrations of O2 and CO2) constitute a mainstay of clinical care to assess the degree of pulmonary gas exchange abnormality. However, the factors that dictate arterial blood gas values are often multifactorial and complex, with six Cited by: Dead space: the physiology of wasted ventilation H.

The pulmonary function laboratory is therefore very important in pulmonary medicine to provide accurate and timely results of lung function tests. This issue of the European Respiratory Monograph not only offers the reader a state-of-the-art approach to pulmonary function testing Cited by: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Altose, Murray D. Physiological basis of pulmonary function testing. Summit, N.J.: Ciba Pharmaceutical Company, © Pulmonary function testing is a pretty niche topic—and it’s about much more than simply looking at computer-generated test results. In this course, you’ll uncover the physiologic basis of pulmonary function testing and its clinical applications. Know when to use spirometry, what additional. This chapter is most relevant to Section F9(i) from the CICM Primary Syllabus, which expects the exam candidates to be able to "describe the measurement and interpretation of pulmonary function tests". This is another topic which seems to straddle the First Part and Second Part exam territory, as questions about lung function testing appear in both exams.
