Product Description
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW"This book, which will fit in a white coat pocket, is an excellent companion for your rounds on the pulmonary floors and in the clinics. It is clearly written without too much scientific jargon. The authors have been careful to keep the book simple without too many formulas, although it is fairly complete and flows well. It deals with most of the pulmonary physiologic topics that you will come across during your work on medical, surgical, and pulmonary floors....This is one of the few books on the subject of pulmonary function testing I read cover to cover."--Doody's Review ServiceThe Pocket Guide to Lung Function Tests is a practical guide to implementing and interpreting test results for common respiratory problems. In contrast to many reference texts already on the market, this book caters for both specialists and non-specialists -- focusing on essential practical information -- with a clinical rather than physiological emphasis. It also explains the subject without recourse to complex equations that often intimidate non-specialist practitioners. Handy and compact in length, the book presents only pertinent details and is well-suited for quick reference and easy access in the surgery. This new edition, in addition to a general update, includes new tests and expanded sections on techniques that have been further developed since the previous edition.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
