It is difficult to determine the audience to which this monograph is directed. The first six chapters deal with such simple basics as the history of the observation on pulmonary edema, the clinical appearance, and a listing of causes that would be expected to appeal to medical students. Only the chapters dealing with experimental pulmonary edema and the factors involved in the production of the condition appear to be of interest to the internist-cardiologist or the researcher working in the field.
The sections dealing with surfactant and the effects of pulmonary edema on the mechanics of breathing are especially superficial.
