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

Cystic fibrosis used to be thought of as a respiratory and digestive disease, with a uniformly and rapidly fatal outcome. The spectrum of the disease has broadened into the mild atypical case, presenting in middle age, with the potential for complications in virtually every system of the body. In the past few years there has been an explosion of knowledge of the basic science of the defect. The editors have therefore invited the leading scientists and clinicians in the field

This book serves as a unique, comprehensive resource for physicians and scientists training in pulmonary medicine and learning about pulmonary function testing. 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 of the respiratory system and the principles of pulmonary function testing. Another reason

"In the past decade pulmonary function tests have assumed an increasingly important and useful role in the field of diagnostic medicine. Many such tests have been devised, but if we consider the lung as ultimately concerned with the exchange of gas between atmosphere and blood, the measurement which perhaps best estimates this process is the pulmonary diffusing capacity. Although the test was conceived early in the century, in the past few years there has been a sudden spurt in its

Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application.

Respiratory infections are among the most common causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. These infections present a special challenge to physicians for several reasons, including of the recent disasters caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and bird and swine influenza, the increase in viral and bacterial resistance to currently available anti-microbial drugs, the increased frequency of new viral lung infections in clinical practice, and the worldwide emergence of deadly drug-resistant forms of TB. For these reasons, it is important

In the antebellum South, plantation physicians used a new medical deviceOCothe spirometerOCoto show that lung volume and therefore vital capacity were supposedly less in black slaves than in white citizens. At the end of the Civil War, a large study of racial difference employing the spirometer appeared to confirm the finding, which was then applied to argue that slaves were unfit for freedom. What is astonishing is that this example of racial thinking is anything but a historical relic. In "

The effect of aging on specific organ systems varies widely from one person to another. Simple observations will attest to the fact that we do not all age at the same rate. Organ systems also age independent of one another. Both aging and disease processes alter the body’s organ systems in both structure and function; they are independent, but tend to overlap in producing similar signs and symptoms. Age serves as a significant modifying factor in respiratory disease, where

In the United States, some populations suffer from far greater disparities in health than others. Those disparities are caused not only by fundamental differences in health status across segments of the population, but also because of inequities in factors that impact health status, so-called determinants of health. Only part of an individual's health status depends on his or her behavior and choice; community-wide problems like poverty, unemployment, poor education, inadequate housing, poor public transportation, interpersonal violence, and decaying neighborhoods also
