Description

This up-to-the-minute reference provides comprehensive coverage of the behavior of the lung in the presence and absence of gravity-emphasizing the effect of gravity upon the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and lymphatic systems. Covers experiments in respiratory physiology from before the Space Shuttle Era to long-duration flights of the International Space Station! Detailing the effects of gravity on blood flow, inhaled particulate matter (PM), and ventilation control on the lung, Gravity and the Lung discusses -convective gas transport in the lung -atmospheric contamination in closed spaceship environments -future research in microgravity -distribution of ventilation, perfusion, and gas exchange -decompression sickness associated with extravehicular activity (EVA) -applies the lessons of space research to physiology on the ground -and more! Based on the editors' first-hand experiences in Spacelab research, Gravity and the Lung is an authoritative source for pulmonologists and respiratory system specialists; physiologists; pneumologists; allergists; pharmacologists; molecular, cellular, and lung biologists; and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
