Now in its 5th edition, The Human Body in Health & Disease clarifies the structures and functions of the human body with a proven, highly visual, student-friendly approach. A brand new design eases you into A&P with an inviting layout and vibrant, detailed illustrations included with text content.

• Quick Check questions, Critical Thinking Challenges, case studies, chapter tests, and more provide helpful review and self-assessment opportunities at the end of each chapter.
• Health and Well-Being boxes reinforce the basic concepts of human structure and function by applying them to current problems in public health, athletics, and fitness.
• Clinical Applications demonstrate how disease affects normal function as well as how therapies can restore normal function.
• Research, Issues, and Trends boxes focus on the dynamic fields of science, technology, and ethics underlying modern concerns in human biology.
• Science Applications examine career paths by exploring the work of influential figures in the history of science.
• Chapter outlines introduce each chapter and allow you to focus on the most important themes and concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This introductory textbook uniquely integrates anatomy, physiology, principles of homeostasis, and disease pathology in a very logical, easy to read format. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: This revised edition continues the tradition of its predecessors to help future health professionals explore the complex human organism. Given recent advances in medicine and related fields, coupled with the advent of newer fields such as genomics and proteomics, this update is needed.
Audience: Although written for future health professionals who are just beginning their studies of the human body, the book would be a valuable resource for college/university and public libraries as well.
Features: The book is divided into 24 chapters which present the core material of anatomy, physiology, and pathology most important for students new to this area. The chapters are logically laid out, with the first five detailing the basics of human biology and subsequent chapters covering more specialized topics such as organs/organ systems, the senses, genetics, and genetic diseases. Chapters begin with an outline and list of objectives, study tips, and bolded key words with pronunciation. They also contain boxed inserts and essays that tie chapter content to clinical applications, public health, and pathology, and make generous use of images, drawings, figures, and tables to illustrate concepts. They end with an outline summary, new words list, review questions, critical thinking questions, chapter test, and several case studies. The book ends with two appendixes that contain examples of pathological conditions and medical terminology, chapter test and case study answers, a glossary, an index, and a companion CD.
Assessment: This is unquestionably a comprehensive book replete with many useful tools that students will find helpful.
