New figures and tables have been added and others revised to help students visualize concepts more clearly and learn the material more effectively. New references and clinical correlations have been added to the end of each chapter. It has been more than 35 years since Pulmonary Physiology was first published. The book is now older than most of its readers! Perhaps the greatest pleasure associated with the first eight editions has been receiving the many favorable comments and helpful suggestions from students, readers, and colleagues, and I have used many of these suggestions in the preparation of this new edition. This book is intended to be used both as an introductory text for beginning students and as a review for residents and fellows in such fields as internal medicine, anesthesiology, pediatrics, and pulmonary medicine.

The reader understands the importance of matching of ventilation and perfusion in the lung. Predicts the consequences of mismatched ventilation and perfusion.
Describes the methods used to assess the matching of ventilation and perfusion. Describes the methods used to determine the uniformity of the distribution of the inspired gas and pulmonary blood flow. Explains the regional differences in the matching of ventilation and perfusion of the normal upright lung.
Predicts the consequences of the regional differences in the ventilation and perfusion of the normal upright lung. Diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide occurs passively, according to their concentration differences across the alveolar-capillary barrier.
These concentration differences must be maintained by ventilation of the alveoli and perfusion of the pulmonary capillaries. Similarly, the mixed venous blood brings carbon dioxide into the lung and takes up alveolar oxygen. The alveolar PO2 and PCO2 are thus determined by the relationship between alveolar ventilation and pulmonary capillary perfusion.
Alterations in the ratio of ventilation to perfusion, called the V.
