Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Cherie G. Howk, DNSc, RN, CS-FNP (Indiana State University)
Description:This is the fourth edition of a well researched and written pathophysiology book. There is an emphasis on the underlying processes of disease in both part one, Central Concepts of Pathophysiology: Cells and Tissues, and part two, Pathophysiologic Alterations: Organs and Tissues. The authors have been diligent in adding pertinent content and updating state-of-the-art information in such areas on hematopoiesis and the stem cell system. The organization of the book remains clear and user friendly. The photographs and drawings are exceptional and the algorithms on the approach to the various disease processes informative. As with previous editions, the summary reviews at the end of each chapter are key to enhancing the understanding of this difficult yet important subject.
Purpose:The previous editions of this book explicitly stated that their purpose was to provide basic and easy to comprehend information about pathophysiologic mechanisms and manifestations of disease. And while that goal was not explicitly stated in this edition, its purpose is to update and provide state-of-the-art information on the subject of pathophysiology. This objective is not only worthy, but necessary considering this accelerated time of discovery. The author did meet the objective.
Audience:The authors are both professors in the College of Nursing at the University of Utah. With their role as nursing educators the book is appropriately targeted at nursing students. In addition, the level of information provided is very appropriate for use by nurse practitioner studentsin all specialties.
Features:This book provides in-depth coverage of pathophysiology of disease starting at the cellular level. If there id a shortcoming to this book, it would be that there is too much information. This potential shortcoming is countered by the very informative charts, figures and algorithms that make sense of the information. An added index of special features provides an additional method to sort through the volumes of information. Advanced practice nurses will value the attention to clinical manifestations and evaluation and treatment.
Assessment:This is the premier pathophysiology book for both the beginning and advanced practice nurse. The current edition will only make this a more valuable book for the education of future nurses. The attention to features that promote learning in nursing is unique to most pathophysiology texts.
