4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This 23rd edition is an excellent source of the current knowledge in physiology. Significant pedagogical advances have been made while preserving the integrity of Dr. Ganong's work....They have done an excellent job of updating this classic, and the tradition continues. So many students in the future will be able to use this book to enhance their knowledge."—Doody's Review Service

For more than four decades, Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology has been the leader in helping medical students and clinicians understand the fascinating subject of human and mammalian physiology. Concisely covering every important topic without sacrificing depth or readability, Ganong's delivers more detailed, clinically-relevant, high-yield information per page than any similar text or review.

Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research and developments in important areas such as the cellular basis of neurophysiology, Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology incorporates examples from clinical medicine throughout the chapters to illustrate important physiologic concepts. Whether you're a student who needs an outstanding review for the USMLE or a physician who wants to keep pace with the ever-changing field of medical physiology, there's no better place to turn than Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology.

Here's why this is the best edition of Ganong's ever:

  • NEW full-color illustrations — the authors have worked with an outstanding team of medical illustrators, photographers, educators, and students to give you an unmatched collection of illustrations and tables
  • NEW boxed clinical cases — featuring examples of diseases that illustrate important physiological principles
  • NEW high-yield end-of-chapter board review questions
  • iPod-compatible review - questions and illustrations from each chapter test your comprehension of the material
  • Companion online learning center includes cases, illustrations, and board review questions (www.LangeTextbooks.com)

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David L. Osborne, PhD (Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book is the first Lange physiology review that is not written by Dr. Ganong, who died in 2007. The long history of excellence has, however, been maintained. This 23rd edition is an excellent source of the current knowledge in physiology. Significant pedagogical advances have been made while preserving the integrity of Dr. Ganong's work. This updates the 2005 edition, the last to have Dr. Ganong at the helm.
Purpose: The new authors had two main goals: the first was to "maintain the highest standards of excellence, accuracy and pedagogy developed by Fran Ganong" and the second was to address "the evolving needs of both students and professors in medical physiology." They have succeeded in both of their goals. This edition and its accompanying changes have resulted in a technically correct and visually enhanced version of the book, while continuing the excellence established by Dr. Ganong in the previous 22 editions.
Audience: As with previous editions, this book is directed at medical students and graduate students, but it is also very useful to faculty and any individual who has a need for accurate, concise, and current information about the function of the human body. This edition is a continuation of a tradition that has benefitted an untold number of students since its first publication in 1963. The new authors are extremely qualified to continue the tradition, although it speaks to the exceptional wisdom of Dr. Ganong that he was the sole author for the first 22 editions and now there are four authors for the 23rd. Based on the current edition, the publishers did a fantastic job in their selection of the new authors.
Features: This book reviews the principles and processes that govern cellular, neuro, musculoskeletal, endocrine, reproductive, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, respiratory and renal physiology. The content is tried and true and has been sufficiently updated to represent the current understanding in the field of physiology. As with previous editions, information is presented in a concise manner that provides any student with a starting point to further investigate a particular area of interest or as a review to refresh or test their understanding of physiology. The authors have added several new features that enhance the book. It is larger, which allows larger print and larger graphics, and many of the graphics are now in color. New boxes contain clinical cases that illustrate the neighboring concepts and how they apply to medicine. Objectives have been added to the beginning of a chapter to direct student learning and questions have been added to the end. Most of the questions are single answer, multiple choice questions to test direct knowledge. In the future, a mixture of this type of question with clinical vignette questions might be helpful. These changes are very useful, but the book now has a more traditional textbook appearance.
Assessment: Similar to Hall's taking over the authorship of Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology (Elsevier, 2011) and Koeppen and Stanton's doing the same for Berne and Levy Physiology (Elsevier, 2010), the loss of key authors of a classic textbook has necessitated the continuation of this version of Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology with new authors. They have done an excellent job of updating this classic, and the tradition continues so many students in the future will be able to use this book to enhance their knowledge.
