Dieser Handbuchband enthält Beiträge über akut auftretende Lungenveränderungen nach schwerem Trauma im Zusammenhang mit der Intensivmedizin und infolge einer Aspiration von Flüssigkeiten oder Fremdkörpern im Kindesalter, das akute Atemnotsyndrom des Erwachsenen, die Schocklunge, Fortschritte der angiographischen Diagnostik der Lungenembolie mit Hilfe der digitalen Subtraktionsangiographie sowie erstmals die radiologische Diagnostik bei Erkrankungen des Thymus im Kindes- und Erwachsenenalter. Ein sorgfältig ausgewähltes Bildmaterial belegt anschaulich den Informationswert der radiologischen Untersuchungsmethoden und zeigt gleichzeitig auch die diagnostischen und differentialdiagnostischen Schwierigkeiten auf. Dieser Handbuchband ist nicht nur für den Radiologen, sondern auch für den Pulmologen, Internisten, Chirurgen und den Facharzt benachbarter Fächer ein hervorragendes Nachschlagewerk und dürfte für lange Zeit ein Standardwerk bleiben.

Management of the intensive care patient afflicted by respiratory insufficiency requires knowledge of the pathophysiological basis for altered functions. The etiology and therapy of pulmonary diseases, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are highly complex. While physiologists and pathophysiologists work prevalently with theoretical modes, clinicians employ sophisticated ventilation support technologies in the attempt to understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of the pulmonary diseases which can present with varying grades of severity. Despite the availability of advanced technologies it is common to personalize the treatment protocol according to the patient's physiologic structure.Given the complexity and difficulties of treating respiratory disease, a strong collaboration between clinicians and physiologists is of fundamtental importance.

Engineering Principles in Physiology, Volume II covers the mechanisms of cardiovascular systems, respiration, and cellular processes. This volume is organized into three parts encompassing 17 chapters. The first part describes the structure, function, mechanical properties, circulation, and control of the cardiovascular system. This part also examines the mechanism of cardiac pump, the atrial electrical activity, and the venous system. The second part explores the interrelationships between the morphology, physiology, and control mechanisms of respiration. This part also considers the mathematical theory of renal function. The third part looks into the cellular dynamics and intracellular processes. This book will prove useful to physiologists, biomedical engineers, and workers in the related fields.

From the reviews: "...Here we have a book which we can wholeheartedly suggest. The mathematics is sound and pared to essentials; the examples are an impressive, well-chosen selection from the biomathematics literature, and the problem sets provide both useful exercises and some fine introductions to the art of modeling... Batschelet has written an introduction to biomathematics which is notable for its clarity - not only a clarity of presentation, but also a clarity of purpose, backed by a sure grasp of the field..." #Bulletin of Mathematical Biology#1 "For research workers in the biomedical field who feel a need for freshening up their knowledge in mathematics, but so far have always been frustrated by either too formal or too boring textbooks, there is now exactly what they would like to have: an easy to read introduction. This book is highly motivating for practical workers because only those mathematical techniques are offered for which there is an application in the life sciences. The reader will find it stimulating that each tool described is immediately exemplified by problems from latest publications." #Int.

A few decades ago mathematics played a modest role in life sciences. Today, however, a great variety of mathematical methods is applied in biology and medicine. Practically every mathematical procedure that is useful in physics, chemistry, engineering, and economics has also found an important application in the life sciences. The past and present training of life scientists does by no means reflect this development. However, the impact of the fast growing number of applications of mathematical methods makes it indispensable that students in the life sciences are offered a basic training in mathematics, both on the undergraduate and the graduate level. This book is primarily designed as a textbook for an introductory course. Life scientists may also use it as a reference to find mathematical methods suitable to their research problems. Moreover, the book should be appropriate for self-teaching. It will also be a guide for teachers. Numerous references are included to assist the reader in his search for the pertinent literature.

This book offers a state-of-the-art description of the complexity of the healthy and pathological respiratory system, with particular reference to the mechanics of the airways, lung and chest wall. Detailed information is provided on new insights into the mechanics of breathing that have been obtained through technological innovations in measurement systems, cutting-edge modeling techniques and novel approaches to functional imaging of the respiratory system. It is explained how these advances permit the assessment of emerging treatment approaches, including new drugs, innovative surgical techniques and modes of mechanical ventilation and new forms of rehabilitation. In order to ensure comprehensive coverage of the subject, the editor has assembled a multidisciplinary team of authors comprising basic scientists in respiratory medicine, chest and intensive care physicians and bioengineers involved in both modeling and instrumentation. The book is intended for intensive care physicians, respirologists, physiologists, rehabilitation specialists, basic scientists in respiration, research and clinical fellows, biomedical engineers involved with respiratory mechanics and respiratory therapists. They will update their knowledge and improve their clinical expertise.
