Netter Award for Special Contributions to Medical Education, and Dr. Schwartzstein is a 2007 recipient of the Alpha Omega Alpha Distinguished Teacher Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Written by renowned and dynamic educators and featuring interactive animations, the book integrates functional anatomy, physiology, and pathology to build a conceptual understanding of respiratory system function. Emphasis is on elements of respiratory physiology that are crucial to understanding and managing clinical problems. A suite of 39 interactive animations accompanies the book.

Respiratory Physiology: A Clinical Approach offers the following features:

  • Writing style is clear, concise, reader-friendly, and conversational.
  • A unique approach shows students how material fits together in the context of the respiratory system.
  • Clinical correlations are integrated throughout the book to emphasize the application of knowledge to medical practice.
  • Interactive animations are provided via accompanying CD and free student access on the Web. The animations illustrate clinical concepts described in the book, so students can actually see the effects of physiologic changes.
  • Thought Questions are placed throughout each chapter to make learning more interactive, requiring students to test their ability to integrate the information presented.
  • "Putting It Together" sections use clinical scenarios to highlight key concepts covered in the chapter. These sections appear at the end of each chapter.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
