Description: At last--a streamlined, clearly written introductory physiology text! Written with valuable contributions by medical students, this innovative new text delivers a straightforward and clear overview of the major principles, agents, and processes governing human physiology. A unique author team of medical students and experts, with special experience in education and clinical medicine, succeed in raising the standard of communication as compared with typical medical physiology texts. Concepts in Medical Physiology avoids the long lists of unprioritized information and undefined jargon by presenting fresh concept diagrams and figures alongside clear explanations of quantitative concepts, plus new analogies, metaphors, and much more. Examine these features and highlights: / Eight major sections, comprising a total of 36 chapters, cover general principles, muscle and bone, blood and the immune system, cardiovascular physiology, pulmonary physiology, renal physiology, gastrointestinal physiology, and endocrine physiology. / An image bank is available to enhance the use of the book in the classroom. / Emphasis is on understanding the higher-order processes in each organ system. / Case studies for each major section present detailed cases with signs and symptoms, history, and laboratory data. Questions at the conclusion of each case reinforce important clinical concepts. / Reviews of cell biology, basic science, and biochemistry refresh students on the foundations of physiological knowledge. / Clinical Application boxes draw the connection between physiology to practical issues students face and help with preparation for the USMLE. / Pathophysiology sections are featured in every chapter. / Review questions with answers in each chapter aid in preparation for the examination. / Integrative Physiology inserts highlight how specific systems, organs, and tissues work together. / More than 350 illustrations aid with visual learning, including original schematic diagrams, photos, and tables. / Concept-focused summaries conclude each chapter for more effective learning and review. / Suggested readings in every chapter provide a valuable resource for further investigation in physiological and clinical ideas. Concepts in Medical Physiology is ideally suited to meet the needs of medical students who are learning physiology for the first time.
