The clinician often must ask himself which technique he should use to test lung function in a patient with acute respiratory failure when the patient is under mechanical ventilation. This book describes all the techniques presently available. The majority of the contributions are written by the specialists who originally described the techniques. They include details about equipment, reference values and clinical application. This complete Update is an excellent reference for any physician dealing with pulmonary medicine.
