Overview

This book presents the basic principles of human disease, organized by human organ system. It provides practical information for both health career and non-professional readers—unlike other books, which are generally too high level or specialized for this purpose. New to this edition are: new diagnostic tests and lab procedures; enhanced coverage in treatment and diagnostic sections in disorders to include common treatments and general pharm options; increased coverage of disease statistics, prevalencies, risk factors for diseases and conditions; addition of prevention and aging to Diseases at a Glance table at the end of each chapter; A new page will be added at the end of each chapter which walks the readers through the multimedia resources that are available for each chapter; and much more!

In this book mechanisms of disease and health problems are comprehensively covered, as are commonly occurring diseases. Basic terminology is introduced with emphasis on the malfunctioning of an organ or organ system. Normal anatomy and physiology are reviewed throughout.

Meet the Author

Mark Zelman, PhD, is Associate Professor of Biology and Chair of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at Aurora University in Aurora, Illinois. A native of Chicago, Mark received his BS in Biology, with minors in Psychology and Chemistry at Rockford College. Mark received his PhD from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Loyola University Chicago, where he studied bacterial and mammalian antigens in a mouse model for human autoimmune disease. Mark was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Chicago, where he studied molecular cell physiology. Before coming to AU, Mark was a biology professor, a college administrator, and a medical writer. Mark pursues a wide range of interests in biology and he is especially interested in enhancing K-12 science education. He enjoys bird-watching and camping with his sons, Joe and Tom, and wears out quite a few shoes training for marathons and triathlons. Mark dedicates the Seventh Edition to Joe and Tom.

Paul Holdaway, MA,a native Hoosier, is a graduate of Indiana State University and was an instructor there for two years. He is currently the senior member of the Biology Department at Harper

College in Palatine, Illinois, where Dr. Mary Lou Mulvihill was an admired fellow biologist and friend. Dr. Zelman and Dr. Tompary are also former departmental colleagues and longstanding friends. Upon Dr. Mulvihill’s retirement, Professor Holdaway assumed the teaching schedule of Dr. Mulvihill, and he has been involved in the anatomy, physiology, and human disease curriculum since that time. Paul takes pleasure in a wide range of biological and clinical interests, as well as sports and family activities.

Elaine Tompary, PharmD,received her Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Tompary taught courses in pharmacology, pathophysiology, pharmacy law, and pharmaceutical calculations at William Rainey Harper College and the College of Lake County in Illinois.

Preface

WELCOME TO THE FIFTH EDITION

This thoroughly revised and updated fifth edition of Human Diseases: A Systemic Approach continues to meet the needs of instructors and students who have used its previous four editions, but has been revised to meet the changing needs of students and instructors by including new pedagogical features to enhance student learning. This edition includes a robust teaching/learning package that features a full range of multimedia tools for both students and instructors. Like the previous editions, this text is written for students entering allied health careers and for students interested in learning the fundamentals of human disease. It embraces the ideas of the original author, the late Dr. Mary Lou Mulvihill, whose vision guided and inspired us as we revised this text. Although the changes in some places are numerous and extensive, instructors will recognize Mary Lou's original purpose and organization. We believe the revisions will serve to greatly enhance understanding of human disease basics.

TEXT ORGANIZATION

The text is divided into three parts. Part I, Mechanisms of Disease, introduces important terminology, the study of disease, inflammation and allergy, neoplasia, heredity and disease, dietary factors and disease, and includes a new chapter, Infectious Diseases. Part II, Diseases of the Systems, introduces students to the major diseases associated with each body system. Part III, Stress, Aging, and Wellness, discusses the role stress and aging play in health and disease. Students are also introduced to the concept of wellness.

CHAPTER REVISIONS

In contemplating our plans for the revision we studied every word, figure, photograph, and chart. Changes in some areas are minor, in others extensive, and in some cases, passages were completely rewritten to better facilitate student understanding.

Chapter 3, Infectious Diseases, is new to this edition. This chapter discusses the nature of infectious disease and provides a framework for learning about the specific infectious diseases discussed throughout the text. It includes discussions of antibiotic resistance and emerging infectious diseases, which are of considerable medical importance. Some passages, such as those on tuberculosis and pneumonia (Chapter 13), benefited from complete rewriting. Other passages, such as those on cirrhosis and jaundice (Chapter 12), were improved through careful editing and updating. The text was scrutinized for currency and was carefully updated throughout (see AIDS/HIV discussion in Chapter 2).

Figures and photographs were added, deleted, or improved to comprise over 100 photographs. Over 150 full color line drawings illustrate and explain many difficult concepts. Revised and new charts throughout the text organize complicated information for students.

ENHANCEMENTS TO THE FIFTH EDITION

Each chapter opens with an expanded Outline and with Student Objectives. Key terms are highlighted and appear in boldface when first introduced and a pronunciation guide appears in the margin for key terms where they are introduced. The end of each chapter contains a revised set of study questions as well as study aids. Each chapter also includes the following pedagogical aids to facilitate student learning:

  • Side by Side photographs and art depicting normal and diseased organs and tissues are included in each systems chapter.
  • Fact or Fiction? at the opening of each systems chapter questions popular wisdom and helps students debunk myths.
  • On the Practical Side offers useful health tips throughout the text.
  • Epidemiology: Diseases by the Number provides data that gives perspective on the incidence and importance of certain diseases.
  • Prevention Plus! offers sound advice on disease prevention throughout.
  • Diseases at a Glance charts summarize each chapter's diseases and their signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments.

TEACHING/LEARNING PACKAGE
