Pathophysiology for the Health Professions is a fundamental pathophysiology text designed specifically for students in any health professions field. It emphasizes the basic principles of disease processes in a clinical context, supported by concrete examples. The first two sections cover basic concepts of pathophysiologic processes such as inflammation and infections, as well as conditions that may alter a patient's health status by mimicking pathophysiological processes or affecting the process of disease. The last section on disorders of the body systems highlights commonly occurring problems and selected topics relevant to each system. Chapters in this section follow a consistent format, including a review of anatomy and physiology, concepts of disease, and specific disorders.
