Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews: Physiology brings physiology clearly into focus, telling the story of who we are, how we live, and, ultimately, how we die. By first identifying organ function and then showing how cells and tissues are designed to fulfill that function, Lippincott Illustrated Reviews: Physiology decodes this discipline like no other text or review book. Each element was tailored for ease of use and fast content absorption, all combining to bring this story to life for readers. Visionary artwork, Clinical Applications, and Unit Review Questions teach and reinforce the most essential concepts in physiology—perfect for classroom learning and test/boards preparation!
Este libro es una excelente introducción a la anatomía, la fisiología y la fisiopatología, la microbiología básica y las bioquímicas normales y anómalas, así como a los procesos patológicos en el ser humano. Gracias a su nuevo diseño y a los recursos electrónicos complementarios, esta edición resulta todavía más interesante que la anterior para cualquier estudiante, independientemente de su estilo de aprendizaje. Entre las ilustraciones se incluyen fotografías de disecciones reales. Las descripciones de casos que aparecen al principio de todos los capítulos explican cómo se aplican los contenidos a situaciones reales. Los iconos orientan al alumno a la consulta de los materiales electrónicos más adecuados.
Dr. Arnold Katz's internationally acclaimed classic, Physiology of the Heart, is now in its thoroughly revised Fifth Edition, incorporating the latest molecular biology research and extensively exploring the clinical applications of these findings. In the single authored, expert voice that is this book's unique strength, Dr. Katz provides a comprehensive overview of the physiological and biophysical basis of cardiac function, beginning with structure and proceeding to biochemistry, biophysics, and pathophysiology in arrhythmias, ischemia, and heart failure. Emphasis is on the interrelationships of basic processes among the cell, cardiac muscle function, and the biophysics of contractile and electrical behavior. This edition includes new material on cell signaling and molecular biology.
Now in its second edition, this highly accessible monograph lays a foundation for understanding of the underlying concepts of normal cardiovascular function. Students of medicine and related disciplines welcome the book’s concise coverage as a practical partner or alternative to a more mechanistically oriented approach or an encyclopedic physiology text. A focus on well-established cardiovascular principles reflects recent, widely accepted research from the field.
An excellent rapid review for course exams and USMLE Step 1, MedMaps for Pathophysiology contains 102 concept maps of disease processes and mechanisms. The book is organized by organ system and includes classic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure, as well as complex diseases such as lupus and HIV.
Each concept map is arranged to visually capture and clarify the relationships between various aspects of each disease, such as biochemical and genetic causes and responses. Laboratory values are included where appropriate. The page layout allows ample space for students to add comments and notes.
This book includes a number of features to help students master the principles of physiology:
62 cases organized by body system to help students integrate material
Several expanded cases, including myasthenia gravis, atrioventricular conduction block, carbon monoxide poisoning, peptic ulcer disease, galactorrhea and amenorrhea, and prolactinoma
2 new cases on Chronic Renal Failure, Liver Failure and Hepatorenal Syndrome
New full-color interior, tables, and illustrations
Within each case, questions are arranged sequentially so that they intentionally build upon each other
Question difficulty varies from basic to challenging, recognizing the progression that most students make
Major equations are presented in boldface type, followed by explanations of all terms
Key topics are listed at the end of each case so that students may focus their study
Common abbreviations are presented on the inside front cover, and normal values and constants are presented on the inside back cover
