Fundamentals of Physiology: A Human Perspective Edition 3

FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY, Third Edition, is based on Lauralee Sherw

 

ood’s best selling Fifth Edition of HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. While both texts cover the same key topics in a current, engaging, and clinically relevant manner, FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY is briefer, lower in level, and requires less of a background in chemistry, physics, and math than its sister text. Essential content is organized around the central theme of homeostasis, as demonstrated by the system-specific homeostatic model that opens each chapter, as well as the “Focus on Homeostasis” that completes each chapter. New to this edition are process-oriented figures, created to aid today’s visual learners. These figure

s include step-by-step descriptions summarizing and integrating various aspects of essential concepts. Another noteworthy addition is the comparative and early introduction of “Principles of Neural and Hormonal Communication”-a NE

W Chapter 4. This edition also showcases an emphasis on real-life experiences, using analogies as well as new “Clinical Note” icons, which flag clinically relevant material.

Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders (Lange Medical Books) 1st Edition

A concise full-color review of the mechanisms of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course

2015 Doody’s Core Title!

4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!

“This is a superb book. Deceptively small, yet packs a wallop. The emphasis on principles instead of practice is welcome….The text is clear, concise, and surprisingly approachable for what could have been a very dense and dry discussion. I could not put this book down and read it entirely in one sitting. When was the last time anyone found a hematology textbook so riveting?”–Doody’s Review Service

Hematological Pathophysiology is a well-illustrated, easy-to-absorb introduction to the physiological principles underlying the regulation and function of blood cells and hemostasis, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for the development of blood disorders. Featuring a strong emphasis on key principles, the book covers diagnosis and management primarily within a framework of pathogenesis.

Authored by world-renowned clinician/educators at Harvard Medical School, Hematological Pathophysiology features content and organization based on a hematology course offered to second year students at that school. The book is logically divided into four sections: Anemias and Disorders of the Red Blood Cell, Disorders of Hemostasis and Thrombosis, Disorders of Leukocytes, and Transfusion Medicine; it opens with an important overview of blood and hematopoietic tissues.

 

Features

  • Succinct, to-the-point coverage that reflects current medical education
  • More than 200 full-color photographs and renderings of disease mechanisms and blood diseases
  • Each chapter includes learning objectives and self-assessment questions
  • Numerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information
  • Incorporates the feedback of 180 Harvard medical students who reviewed the first draft — so you know you’re studying the most relevant material possible

Electrophysiologic Testing

Following the huge success of previous editions, Electrophysiological Testing 4th edition is the must have resource for students, residents, cardiology fellows, primary care physicians, cardiologists, nurses, and technicians because it: clarifies the role of electrophysiology in the evaluation of cardiac arrhythmias discusses advances in therapeutic electrophysiology keeping you completely up to date provides clear summaries of complex topics is written in a user-friendly and understandable writing style to make the information easy to digest and recall includes an entirely new chapter on the key field of Cardiac Resynchronisation Reviews of previous edition: “Many times I have found that EP literature is very tied to research results and bogs down the primary topic and makes it difficult to understand. This book explains EP in plain English! I think it is in a class by itself.” EP Technician, Galichia Heart Hospital, Wichita, KS, USA ”It gives a good understanding of EP without getting too technical and complex in the explanations. It accomplishes a major task of “demystifying” the field of EP. It not only addresses the needs of non technical EP Personnel, but also provides a precise overview of EP for general review.” Cardiac NP, St. Jude’s Medical Center
