Overview

Let the beautiful illustrations and diagrams from the Netter collection enhance your understanding of physiology. Respected physiologists, Susan Mulroney and Adam Myers of Georgetown University School of Medicine, provide you with a logical and highly readable reference, ideal for a basic understanding of the subject, a comprehensive overview, or as a supplement to lectures. Organized by organ system, each section is followed by a set of review questions to reinforce what’s been covered. Clinical examples demonstrate key physiology concepts and their application in general medicine.
  • Features the beautifully clear drawings and diagrams from the Netter collection to illustrate key concepts and further your visual understanding of the subject.
  • Integrates basic science with clinical examples so that you can understand and apply principles to practice.
  • Follows the clinical orientation of board exams with an emphasis on disease processes to cover pathophysiology.
  • Features anatomical and histological illustrations that are ideal for integrating material in new systems-based medical and health science curricula.
  • Provides self-assessment review questions at the end of each chapter to help you practice and prepare for exams and boards.
  • Includes Student Consult access to the electronic version of the text and other supplementary material.

Your purchase entitles you to access the web site until the next edition is published, or until the current edition is no longer offered for sale by Elsevier, whichever occurs first. If the next edition is published less than one year after your purchase, you will be entitled to online access for one year from your date of purchase. Elsevier reserves the right to offer a suitable replacement product (such as a downloadable or CD-ROM-based electronic version) should online access to the web site be discontinued.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kristin L. Gosselink, PhD (University of Texas at El Paso)
Description: This book is designed to help readers understand the essential components of human physiological systems and their integration with concepts from physics and chemistry. It is geared toward visual learners, with multiple detailed images throughout. Review questions aid readers in assessing their comprehension.
Purpose: The book provides an integrated view of bodily function at all levels, with special attention given to essential aspects and difficult concepts in physiology. Numerous detailed illustrations address different learning styles and increase understanding. In line with these objectives, the book will contribute significantly to successful learning when used with other sources of information or instruction, and will serve as a handy resource for students in their physiology courses and beyond.
Audience: Students in the fields of medicine, dentistry, and nursing, as well as upper-division undergraduates, are the intended audience. However, in some places the material is more advanced than would be appropriate for nursing students, especially during their undergraduate training. That said, the book could easily be adopted for course-specific coverage. The authors are unquestionably experts in the field.
Features: The book covers concepts in all of the subdisciplines of human physiology, and is organized in a fashion consistent with most standard textbooks. Cell physiology, fluids, and transport are covered initially, followed by the nervous, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems. In each chapter, the main topics are highlighted in bold, and the liberal use of highly detailed and expertly conceived illustrations makes it easy to locate and assimilate the relevant information. "Clinical correlate" windows maintain relevance for students, and the "light bulb" panels provide additional detail on specific topics. One very minor shortcoming is that it might be difficult for students to discern areas of greater or lesser importance for study, making instructor clarity a critical factor.
Assessment: This book presents the information extremely well. It complements existing textbooks (e.g., Human Anatomy and Physiology, 8th edition, Marieb et al. (Pearson, 2010); Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach, 5th edition, Silverthorn (Pearson, 2010)), but also expands on the information and contributes to understanding by providing exceptional illustrations and detail. Images from this book would be useful in instruction and in self-study, increasing comprehension and success for students who learn more effectively through different modalities.
