Overview

Now in its Third Edition, this text clearly and concisely presents the physiological principles that are essential to clinical medicine. Outstanding pedagogical features include Active Learning Objectives that emphasize problem-solving applications of basic principles; conceptual diagrams that help students visualize complex processes; case studies, Clinical Focus boxes, and From Bench to Bedside boxes; a comprehensive glossary; and online USMLE-style questions with answers and explanations. This edition features a new Immunology and Organ Function chapter and a completely rewritten and reorganized cardiovascular section.

A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, an interactive question bank, case studies with practice questions, animations of complex processes, an image bank, and links for further study.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David L. Osborne, PhD (Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This textbook designed for medical or allied health students delivers clinically relevant physiology without a lot of extraneous material. The authors indicate that they wrote the book to "be midway between an oversimplified review book and an encyclopedic textbook of physiology." The book contains specific learning objectives, clinical focus and bench to bedside boxes, case studies, chapter summaries, and review questions.
Purpose: The purpose is to present physiological concepts in a "concise, uncomplicated and understandable fashion," a growing approach to textbooks. The editors are successful in producing a book that is not necessarily unique, but they do accomplish their goal of creating a useful text for students in clinical programs.
Audience: In trying to reach such a broad audience, the book is slightly lacking in the detail needed by medical students and is too detailed for allied health students in programs that require less scientific preparation. The most appropriate audience would seem to be physical therapy or physician assistant students. The authors are very accomplished in their fields and have produced an excellent textbook.
Features: The book follows a classic organ-based presentation with the addition of a chapter on temperature regulation and exercise physiology. Inside the front and back covers are listed the normal serum or blood values found in the human, useful as a reference for students. The appendix also includes a list of common abbreviations used in physiology. The clinical focus and bench to bedside boxes are useful for students to see application of the material.
Assessment: The third edition is a needed update of the 2003 second edition as significant changes have occurred. This excellent book presents basic science material in a clinically relevant format and is poised to ride the wave of the new educational approaches to medical education.

    A useful and understandable human physiology text

    This Rhoades and Bell text has been an extremely useful supplement to a graduate level human physiology course. It is readable and have an intuitive flow of subject matter. The sections of clinical focus/correlations put concepts into perspective and paint a broader picture.
