for this. A discussion of a patient with asthma, for example, can quickly and painlessly cover
the basic physiology of the airways, blood gases, and lung volumes. I hope that this little book
will be helpful in such a course that bridges the preclinical and clinical disciplines.
This book emphasizes the relations between structure and function in the diseased lung.
Indeed, readers will fi nd more anatomic pathology than might be expected in a book about
pathophysiology. However, function cannot be understood properly without knowledge of
structure. It is assumed that students who read this book are also exposed to teaching in
