Practical and clinically relevant, Hyatt’s Interpretation of Pulmonary Function Tests provides user-friendly coverage of all types of pulmonary function testing as it applies to a wide range of disease conditions.

In this revised 5th Edition, Dr. Paul D. Scanlon expands upon the tradition of excellence begun by renowned pulmonary physiologist and father of the flow-volume curve, Dr. Robert E. Hyatt. A new two-color design, new and reorganized cases, and revised and expanded content keep you up to date with all that's new in the field.

  • Offers valuable guidance for day-to-day clinical work, featuring chapters such as "When to Test and What to Order" and "Approaches to Interpreting Pulmonary Function Tests."
  • Features a new section on the interpretation of complex tests, including the nonspecific pattern, mixed obstruction with restriction, and the complex restrictive pattern.
  • Includes more than 40 illustrative cases for self-testing and reinforcing the principles discussed in the text, as well as clear illustrations that demonstrate dozens of PFT patterns.
  • Contains expert "pearls" regarding performance and interpretation of key tests.
