Overview

This widely read classic is an excellent primer on normal and abnormal anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, basic microbiology, chemistry, and the human disease process. With a new design and a robust new multimedia electronic ancillary package, this Eleventh Edition will be even more engaging and understandable for students with diverse learning styles.

This edition's new artwork includes real dissection photographs from Rohen's Color Atlas of Anatomy, Sixth Edition. New Disease in Context case scenarios integrated throughout each chapter show how content is applied to real-life situations. Icons direct students to relevant electronic materials.

The new PASSport to Success online student ancillary package includes a learning styles assessment that guides students to the interactive activities best suited to their individual learning style. Eleven different types of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities are presented on the PASSport Website and on a bound-in CD-ROM. LiveAdvise one-to-one online tutoring is also included.

This widely read classic is an excellent primer on normal anatomy and physiology, basic microbiology, chemistry, and an introduction to the human disease process. New to this edition is a beautifully revised design and art program with new illustrations that include anatomical line drawings and clinical photos and photomicrographs. New content includes "Word Derivations" sections that promote recognition of scientific terms, "Health Professions" boxes that provide information on the various health careers, and new types of end-of chapter questions. A Blackboard online course student access code and a back-of-book student CD-ROM with an image atlas and audio pronunciation glossary are included. LiveAdvise online student tutoring and faculty support come as a bonus with every text. Please visit http://connection.lww.com/liveadvise for more information.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan A Trombley, AAS, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: In its 11th edition, this continues to be a leading text of anatomy and physiology, the interrelationships between structure and function, and the effects of diseases on the body systems. The accompanying CD-ROM features an image atlas and an audio pronunciation library.
Purpose: This book provides the essential knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. It illustrates the concepts with anatomic art that depicts the appropriate level of detail. This edition has been revised where needed to improve organization of the material.
Audience: This is ideal for all entry level healthcare professionals and students. The features and content specifically meet the needs of those starting their health career preparation with little or no science background.
Features: A body systems approach to the study of the normal human body is used. The book is divided into seven units, grouping related information and body systems together. The main glossary defines chapters in bold-faced terms. The appendixes include a variety of supplemental information, including a new dissection photo appendix. Checkpoint questions and answers are found in every chapter.
Assessment: This 11th edition of this classic book would be a valuable resource for school and public libraries as well.
