Lectures by John B. West, M.D., Ph.D.
These lectures were prepared as ancillary teaching aids for our own medical students and those in other schools. The material is based on my two books Respiratory Physiology: The Essentials, 9th ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012, and Pulmonary Pathophysiology: The Essentials, 8th ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012. However the lecture format means that more time can be spent discussing the more difficult concepts, and also of course far more illustrations can be included here than in a book. The material may also be useful as a review for residents and fellows in such areas as pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, and internal medicine, particularly to help with preparation for licensing and other examinations.

Some students have requested that the PowerPoint images used in the videos be made available as a separate file so that notes can be added alongside the images by the viewer. Files of the images have now been added on the understanding that they will be used only for non-commercial, educational purposes. Other uses require permission from the copyright holders who are listed in the section on Credits.
