Nunn’s Applied Respiratory Physiology, Eighth Edition, is your concise, one-stop guide to all aspects of respiratory physiology in health, disease, and in the many physiologically challenging situations and environments into which humans take themselves – with coverage from basic science to clinical applications.
This most comprehensive single volume on respiratory physiology will be invaluable to those in training or preparing for examinations in anaesthesia, intensive care, respiratory medicine or thoracic surgery – as well as an essential quick reference for the range of practitioners requiring ready access to current knowledge in this field.
Now fully revised and updated, this eighth edition includes a new full-colour format to improve clarity and understanding – and it also comes with access to the complete, downloadable eBook version for the first time. This incorporates bonus chapters, handy topic summaries and new, interactive, self-assessment material. The result is a more flexible, engaging and complete resource than ever before.

Oxygen Sensing: Responses and Adaptation to Hypoxia

Editors : S. Lahiri, G. Semenza and N.R. Prabhakar
Release Date: 2003
Imprint: Marcel Dekker, Inc.
ISBN: 0824709608
Pages: 775

Reviewing research on the molecular basis of oxygen homeostasis, this text describes the changes in intracellular signalling and gene expression that lead to physiological responses to hypoxia in unicellular, invertebrate, and mammalian species. It examines O2 sensing systems in bacteria and archaea and demonstrates interrelationships among cell proliferation, energy metabolism, oxygen homeostasis, redox states, signal transduction and gene expression in humans and other organisms. The book describes the effect of hypoxia on carotid body structure and function and the effect of alterations in oxygen homeostasis on the pathophysiology of cardiac ischemia, cancer, stroke, and chronic lung disease.

High Altitude Medicine and Physiology, 5th Edition

Pages: 584

A comprehensive update this pre-eminent and accessible text, this fifthe edition of a bestseller has developed as a response to man's attempts to climb unaided to higher altitudes and to spend more time in these conditions for both work and recreation. It describes the ever-expanding challenges that doctors face in dealing with the changes in human physiology and particular medical conditions that arise from exposure to altitude and cold.
The highly respected authors of this fifth edition are internationally recognised for their academic research in the field, and are all experienced mountaineering physicians who have dealt with illness and accidents in high places. They have continued to provide a text that will help physicians to improve the health and safety of all people who visit, live or work in cold and thin air conditions experienced in high mountains.
High Altitude Medicine and Physiology is invaluable reading for any doctor accompanying an expedition or advising patients on a visit to altitude, physicians specialising in illness and accidents in high places and for physiologists who study our dependence on oxygen and the adaptation of the body to altitude.

High altitude: an exploration of human adaptation

Editor’s : E.R. Swenson and P. Bärtsch
Release Date: 11 Dec 2013
Imprint: Springer
Pages: 510

This book explores how humans respond to the hypoxia of high altitudes, addressing the response of lowlanders to sudden and sustained exposure, as well as that of those living permanently at high elevations. Examines adaptation and maladaptation, acute and chronic high-altitude illnesses, and the challenges faced by lowland dwellers with preexisting medical conditions who venture to high altitude! Containing more than 3000 references and over 200 tables, charts, and graphs that support the text, High Altitude offers an anthropological perspective on those who dwell permanently at great heights
  • investigates how cells sense oxygen, including arterial chemoreceptors, erythropoietin-producing tissues, and pulmonary vascular smooth muscle
  • discusses the role of individual organs as well as their integrated function in enabling physical and mental performance at high altitude
  • focuses on the additional metabolic and circulatory demands of perception, thought, and action in the brain
  • considers how organisms defend themselves against the stress of hypoxia
  • and more!
Written by more than 55 contributors who are among the world’s leading authorities and investigators, High Altitude is a provocative referencefor pulmonologists, physiologists, biologists, critical care specialists, internists, primary care physicians, pediatricians, and medical school students.
