Date:4/23/2013

New Orleans The 8th Edition of PULMONARY PHYSIOLOGY by Dr. Michael G. Levitzky, Professor of Physiology, Anesthesiology, and Cardiopulmonary Science at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans, was published this month by McGraw-Hill in its Lange Physiology Series. Called the preeminent textbook for pulmonary physiology, this book has been the first choice and primary educational tool worldwide for this subject for more than 30 years. Dr. Levitzky published the first edition in 1982.

This textbook has been described as the best review for the USMLE Step I, the first of three examinations required for medical licensure in the United States. The book teaches first-year medical students, as well as respiratory therapy, nursing, nurse-anesthesia, and other students how and why the respiratory system works. It covers all of the concepts of pulmonary physiology critical to understanding and practicing clinical medicine. The series has also been used by residents and fellows in internal medicine, anesthesiology, pediatrics, and pulmonary medicine as a review for licensure and certification examinations.

Dr. Levitzky, who is also Director of the Basic Science Curriculum at the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine, joined the LSUHSC faculty in 1975. He teaches physiology to medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate students. He has received numerous teaching awards from students. Dr. Levitzky received the inaugural LSUHSC Allen A. Copping Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Basic Sciences in 1997 and the American Physiological Society's Arthur C. Guyton Teacher of the Year Award in 1998. He was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Medical Society as a faculty member in 2006.

Dr. Levitzky has served the American Physiological Society as a member of the Education Committee and as a member of the Steering Committee of the Teaching Section. He served as a member of the National Bo
