Cardiopulmonary System carefully and methodically develops the most important concepts underlying the functions of the heart, lungs, and circulation. The text is organized around how the body controls the rate of utilization of energy, that is, the maintenance of a stable internal environment, or homeostasis. The concept of homeostasis is so important that the authors adopt several tools to present it, such as the cycle diagram, which demonstrates the interdependence of organs and organ systems. Case studies, a liberal use of margin notes, and review questions with explanations help the student appreciate how an understanding of cardiopulmonary physiology ultimately leads to more effective clinical practice.
