- "The only text to cover lung function assessment from first principles including methodology, reference values and interpretation. Editors are amongst the world's leading authorities on lung function. Text completely re-written in a contemporary style: includes user-friendly equations and more diagrams. New material covering the latest advances in the treatment of lung function, including a stronger clinical and practical bias and more on new techniques and equipment"--
