    Anyone have some tips or recommended study aids for pulmonary physiology? We just started the topic and I feel lost already...

    See if your school's library has West's Respiratory Physiology. Dense and concise book (~150 pgs) and I found his writing style very clear. 10 or so practice questions at the end of each chapter. Our lecturer for resp phys was in her first year of teaching and was hands down the worst one we had all year, so I largely taught myself, and found the book quite good.

    The chapter in BRS physiology is very helpful.

    I found Respiratory Physiology by Michelle Coutier helpful.
