Overview

This text is intended for the two semesters combined or integrated anatomy and physiology course offered at two and four year schools. It provides comprehensive coverage of the structure and function of all major systems of the human body. A new author to this edition,Donna Van Wynsberghe has expanded the coverage of physiology,particularly in the areas of respiratory physiology,muscle physiology,the cardiovascular system,endocrinology and immunology. The physiology coverage is further enhanced by new and improved flowcharts that reduce complex physiological processes to a visually enhanced schematic that leads the student through the basic steps comprising each process. Icons of pertinent organs or structures involved in the process help the student associate where,in the body the steps of the process occur. This edition has been thoroughly updated to included the latest pathologies and treatments and other clinical applications of importance to allied health students. A new "Focus on Careers" provideds students an insight into the variety of health related careers that will apply the knowledge they acquire from the study of anatomy and physiology.
