Pulmonary Circulation: Diseases and Their Treatment, Fourth Edition PDF
by Andrew J. Peacock (Editor), Robert Naeije (Editor), Lewis J. Rubin (Editor)

Pulmonary Circulation provides physicians with a better understanding of the structure, function and pathophysiology of the pulmonary circulation. It provides comprehensive coverage from diagnosis and clinical evaluation of patients with pulmonary hypertension to imaging techniques, disorders and treatment.
This new edition incorporates the latest clinical, pathophysiological and pathological research on pulmonary circulatory disorders. In particular, it provides greater emphasis on the role of the right ventricle in pulmonary vascular disease, updated knowledge on pathobiology and genetics, and includes new material related to imaging and other diagnostic modalities.
This edition also reflects new classifications and all the recommendations from the 2013 World Conference on Pulmonary Circulation as well as current guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology and the European Respiratory Society.
Thoroughly updated to keep up with the brisk pace of discovery and emerging therapies, the book remains an essential resource by providing a balance between scientific review and clinically relevant guidelines for the busy practicing physician.

The consequences of disturbed function of the pulmonary circulation remain an enigma to most clinicians. There is disturbance of pulmonary circulatory function in nearly all cardiac and pulmonary disease, yet this is rarely recognized or treated. The reasons for this relative obscurity when compared, for example, with the systemic circulation, are clear. 
The pulmonary circulation is difficult to examine clinically, and the tools we have for pulmonary circulatory measurement are either crude or invasive, or both. Even when we make invasive measurements with a cardiac catheter, we learn only about the circulation in artificial surroundings (the catheter laboratory), in an unrepresentative position (supine on the table), and in a state of artificially restricted activity. Clearly, we need clinical measurement techniques that will allow us to pursue pulmonary circulatory function 
in all states of human activity, both in normal people and in those with cardiorespiratory disease.
These are coming, but even now we know much about the pulmonary circulation that can help us in looking after patients in the ward and in the intensive care unit. Fortunately, there has been a great deal of research into the structure and function of the pulmonary circulation. We already understand much of its physiology and pathophysiology, and recently a number of effective therapies have been developed, tested, and put into clinical use with great effect. In this book, a distinguished group of authors, most of whom have a clinical background, have presented what is known about the pulmonary circulation in a readable and, more important, clinically relevant fashion, so that the information can be understood by practicing physicians. 
This is the fourth edition, with many completely new sections but a similar though more clinically orientated format. 
The book has been written especially with busy clinicians in mind, particularly those in respiratory medicine, cardiology, pediatrics, and intensive care. It has been deliberately structured so that a subject can be appreciated at any level from the purely clinical right down to the biochemical. This allows the reader to start with a chapter about a particular clinical issue and then, if interested, to pursue that subject from the clinical to the physiological to the biochemical level as he or she desires. Each chapter stands alone, so some repetition is inevitable, for which we make no apology, but this hierarchy of structure will, we hope, make the book accessible without diminishing the quality of the information that is presented
