8th edition of LSUHSC faculty's textbook published

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.
