This new book fills a growing need for a basic pathophysiology text designed specifically for students in health-related fields. It assumes no prior knowledge of pathophysiology and is very readable, making it appropriate for students from a broad range of backgrounds who are enrolled in a wide variety of different training programs. Pathophysiology for the Health Professions covers disease processes, etiology, and manifestations for most major health problems as well as less common disorders...and then provides concise descriptions of the associated diagnostic tests and treatment. By mastering these concepts, students will have a more informed basis for taking a medical and drug history, scheduling client care, recognizing clients' health limitations, understanding the side effects of drugs and radiation, and spotting associated problems in a timely fashion. They will also learn to work more effectively with other members of the health care team.
