The new edition of this best-selling text upholds its excellent reputation. As an introduction to basic anatomy and physiology, the organization of the body is traced from the single cell to the co-ordinated whole. Coverage includes normal and abnormal anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology; basic microbiology, chemistry and physics. Focus is placed on the interaction of all body systems for the maintenance of a stable internal state, or homeostasis, and explanation is given for conditions that can upset this balance to produce disease. Key features include: student objectives, key terms and study questions in each chapter, summary outline at the end of each chapter, abundant illustrations to clarify text, glossary with pronunciations, and a medical terminology section. This edition includes: 50% new illustrations; 70 new four-colour illustrations; many new photographs and micrographs; expanded information on physiology; and special interest boxes in each chapter, covering normal function and clinical focus. This edition also contains a new appendix on laboratory values including urine, blood cells, and blood chemistry. The computerised test bank and workbook offers a broader range of questions.
