Pulmonary Function Tests

by Jayant R Shah

This book Pulmonary Function Tests will provide valuable assistance in understanding highly specialized pulmonary function tests in clinical practice. The main function of lungs in the body is to supply life sustaining oxygen and remove injurious carbon dioxide through various processes. By its very nature, the diseases of respiratory system disturb the processes and consequently the function. Such better understanding has recognized the importance of lung function tests in health and disease states—in health for physical fitness and assessment of work capacity and in disease state for understanding the nature of disease and assessment of its severity. While each topic is physiologically based with brief outline of technique of test, much is practical application of lung function tests in the diagnosis and assessment of severity. Equally emphasized is assessment of physical fitness and physical work capacity in health.
