Any treatise on cardiopulmonary interactions has at its foundation a thorough understanding of both pulmonary and cardiac physiology. Although recent articles have addressed advances in the field or applications to a particular subspecialty, the reader is advised to have basic physiological articles available for a complete background. As such, the authors hope to highlight the clinical settings in which a thorough knowledge of cardiopulmonary interactions is essential to the caregiver at the bedside.
