原始语种摘要: This issue is dedicated to technological advances and their contribution to the advancement of respiratory medicine. Our understanding of the fundamental aspects of breathing and respiration would not have been possible without simultaneous advances in technology based in the physical, engineering and chemical sciences. From the Lavoisiers to Boyle, the Curies to Röntgen, without the equipment to conduct the necessary experiments, we would have proceeded even more slowly towards our grasp of oxygen, Boyle’s law, the chest radiograph and the fundamental principles of tumour irradiation. As far as respiratory physiology goes, W est [1] has eloquently stated that surges in our understanding often occur during times of war, when challenges to human physiology spur on technological innovation....
