A highly readable, detailed, thoroughly scholarly history on the physiology, chemistry, and technology of normal and abnormal aspects of blood gases, hemoglobin, blood pH, and blood buffers. Coverage runs in detail from the Renaissance to our time. Generously illustrated with portraits, diagrams of apparatus. The one chapter by Severinghaus makes clear the major contributions of the principal author, a distinguished contributor to his field. Highly recommended for personal reading by nephrologists, pulmonary medicine physicians. Should be in all collections of medical history aiming to cover the development of modern clinical chemistry.
