About this book

Introduction

The Textbook of Pulmonary Vascular Disease combines basic scientific knowledge on the pulmonary circulatory system at levels of the molecule, cell, tissue, and organ with clinical diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary vascular diseases. State-of-the-art techniques and their potential applications in research, diagnosis, and treatment of pulmonary vascular diseases are also covered. Jason X.-J.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book begins by detailing the known elements of structure and physiology, then outlines several research tools commonly used in the investigation of pulmonary vasculature before covering mechanisms of pulmonary vascular injury, disease states, and available treatment. … The intended audience centers on clinicians, but physician scientists, principal investigators, and others with an interest in pulmonary vascular research also can use it as a reference. … This is a unique book and has no comparison. … I will refer to this text regularly.” (Warren Bradley Fields, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2011)
