Review:

Doody's Book Review Service, 28-APR-08, Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RRT, AE-C, William Beaumont Hospitals -- "This eighth edition continues the gold standard tradition of its predecessors. It is well written and well laid out. Dr. West takes the complex topic of respiratory physiology, breaks it down into its individual components, and writes the specifics in a very simple, easy to understand language. This is a must-have book not only for medical and respiratory care students but for university, college, and hospital libraries."-Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 98; 5 Stars)
