Dr. Comroe and his colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania have spent many productive years studying respiratory physiology. The presentation of their findings to the medical public in concise, clear, nontechnical terms has been attained in this elegant volume, based on the 1954 Beaumont Lecture. The basic features of normal lung function are thoroughly reviewed, using diagrams to supplement text. Application of pulmonary function test data to clinical medicine is demonstrated by careful, pertinent analyses of many varied cases. An appendix contains some of the mathematics involved in respiratory physiology, and includes basic equations for those inclined toward calculations.
