His primary scientific interests are in Lung, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Pathology and Anesthesia. His Lung research includes elements of Blood flow, Anatomy, Respiratory system and Pulmonary artery. His work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Endocrinology and Altitude.
His work investigates the relationship between Cardiology and topics such as Pulmonary Diffusing Capacity that intersect with problems in Carbon dioxide blood. The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Edema, Pulmonary hypertension, Pulmonary wedge pressure, Endothelium and Pulmonary edema. His studies deal with areas such as Diffusing capacity and Oxygen tension as well as Anesthesia.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Lung, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Effects of high altitude on humans and Atomic physics. John B. West combines subjects such as Anesthesia, Blood flow, Respiratory system, Anatomy and Pathology with his study of Lung. His Endocrinology research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine.
His research in Cardiology is mostly focused on Ventilation/perfusion ratio. His Effects of high altitude on humans research focuses on Altitude and how it relates to Acclimatization and Atmospheric sciences. His Atomic physics course of study focuses on Photoionization and Cross section and Photon energy.
John B. West focuses on Effects of high altitude on humans, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Altitude and Lung. His Effects of high altitude on humans study also includes
His Oxygen–haemoglobin dissociation curve study which covers Lung disease that intersects with Alveolar gas. His Altitude study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as VO2 max, Hyperventilation and Physical geography. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Lung, concentrating on Anatomy and intersecting with Electron micrographs.
John B. West mainly investigates Effects of high altitude on humans, Internal medicine, Lung, Altitude and Cardiology. His research integrates issues of Hypoxia, Ecology, Hypoxia, Physiology and Hypoxemia in his study of Effects of high altitude on humans. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in African american population and Allergy.
His studies in Lung integrate themes in fields like Epithelial barrier, Anesthesia, Anatomy, Pathology and Surfactant system. The various areas that John B. West examines in his Altitude study include Social psychology and Hyperventilation. His work in Cardiology covers topics such as Oxygen–haemoglobin dissociation curve which are related to areas like Lung disease.
