This is a concise, authoritative, and significant contribution to the field of pulmonary physiology. The subject matter is an up-to-date presentation of pulmonary function tests. It is valuable to the surgeon and medical man alike in that from the application of these tests one can not only determine the patient's present pulmonary status but also what can be anticipated in the course of his disease or postoperatively.
