Title
The changing face of respiratory physiology: 20 years of progress within the ERS: Clinical Physiology and Integrative Biology Assembly contribution to the celebration of 20 years of the ERS
Author
Abstract
Respiratory physiology, the study of the function of the respiratory system in health and disease, was one of the core disciplines in respiratory medicine throughout the second half of the 20th Century. Moreover, clinical and basic physiologists were central to the creation of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) 20 yrs ago. Despite concerns that all the "interesting" questions in physiology had been answered, the last 20 yrs have shown that applying physiological principles to respiratory disease not only leads to new insights into how the lungs work when stressed, but has also identified new areas where the diagnosis and treatment of previously intractable or unrecognised physiological disorders has transformed the lives of large numbers of people.
