9780127999418: The Lung, Second Edition: Development, Aging and the Environment

The second edition of The Lung: Development, Aging and the Environment provides an understanding of the multi-faceted nature of lung development, aging, and how the environment influences these processes. As an essential resource to respiratory, pulmonary, and thoracic scientists and physicians it provides an interface between the “normal and “disease cluster of chapters, allowing for a natural complement to each other. The interface between different lung diseases affecting the pediatric lung also adds a useful source for comparing how different lung diseases share key pathophysiological features. This same complementarity comes across in the logical line up of chapters dealing with the “normal pediatric lung.  New research, including cell-based strategies for infant lung function, epigenetics, and prenatal alcohol exposure on lung development and function are some of the important additions to this edition of this reference work.

  • Describes the normal processes of lung development, growth and aging
  • Considers the effects of the environmental contaminants in the air, water, soil, and diet on lung development, growth and health
  • Describes genetic factors involved in susceptibility to lung disease
  • Covers respiratory health risk in children

Book Description:

The only single volume book to consider the "life cycle" of the lung, the effects of the environment on the structure and function of the lung and respiratory health in later life.

From the Back Cover:

The respiratory system undergoes distinct and unique stages of change throughout its life cycle, starting before birth and continuing through to old age and death. It is now recognized that environmental factors can play a significant role at each of these stages, and that these factors can have different and sometimes persistent consequences when experienced during various stages of life.

Written by experts, The Lung: Development , Aging and the Environment provides an up-to-date account of the normal processes of lung development, growth and aging, followed by a detailed consideration of how environmental factors influence these processes and contribute to the quality of respiratory health.

This book is essential for graduate/post-graduate respiratory/pulmonary scientists, physicians, perinatologists, pediatricians, gerontologists, pharmacologists, epidemiologists, toxicological, health and environmental regulators and non-experts with a broad interest in human health.

KEY FEATURES:
* Describes the normal processes of lung development, growth and aging
* Considers the effects of the environmental contaminants in the air, water, soil, and diet on lung development, growth and health
* Describes genetic factors involved in susceptibility to lung disease
* Discusses respiratory health risk in children
