Lung Function Testing in the 21st Century

Lung Function Testing in the 21st Century: Methodologies and Tools Bridging Engineering to Clinical Practice covers the complete aspects of lung function testing, ranging from standardized to newly introduced (IOS, FOT) methods. It provides an updated overview of advances in respiratory engineering, along with advice on which lung function tests are appropriate for which purpose. The author discusses non-standardized lung function testing, methods, clinical tests, diagnosis and future perspectives. Lung function measurement devices and protocols are also covered. This book covers multidisciplinary domains, bringing new technology ideas from mathematics, physics, biology and engineering into the field of respiratory engineering. Users will find a single resource that brings together all of the disparate information on lung function testing technology currently contained in many journal articles. Bridges the gap between engineers and clinicians with regard to pulmonary function techniques, from research, to design and clinical practice Provides a comprehensive overview of all tools available for lung function testing, detailing their pros and cons Includes information on incorporating new devices into existing procedures, along with methods for lung function testing

Advances in molecular biology and toxicology are paving the way for major improvements in the evaluation of the hazards posed by the large number of chemicals found at low levels in the environment. The National Research Council was asked by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to review the state of the science and create a far-reaching vision for the future of toxicity testing. The book finds that developing, improving, and validating new laboratory tools based on recent scientific advances

The national immunization system has achieved high levels of immunization, particularly for children. However, this system faces difficult challenges for the future. Significant disparities remain in assuring access to recommended vaccines across geographic and demographic populations. These disparities result, in part, from fragmented publicâ€"private financing in which a large number of children and adults face limited access to immunization services. Access for adults lags well behind that of children, and rates of immunizations for those who are especially vulnerable

Millions of Americans use e-cigarettes. Despite their popularity, little is known about their health effects. Some suggest that e-cigarettes likely confer lower risk compared to combustible tobacco cigarettes, because they do not expose users to toxicants produced through combustion. Proponents of e-cigarette use also tout the potential benefits of e-cigarettes as devices that could help combustible tobacco cigarette smokers to quit and thereby reduce tobacco-related health risks. Others are concerned about the exposure to potentially toxic substances contained in e-cigarette

The US Department of Defense (DOD) is faced with an overwhelming task in evaluating chemicals that could potentially pose a threat to its deployed personnel. There are over 84,000 registered chemicals, and testing them with traditional toxicity-testing methods is not feasible in terms of time or money. In recent years, there has been a concerted effort to develop new approaches to toxicity testing that incorporate advances in systems biology, toxicogenomics, bioinformatics, and computational toxicology. Given the advances, DOD asked the National
