Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Patrick J McDonnell, Pharm.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This is a series of case studies that apply principles of physiology in some clinical disease state situations to exemplify these principles. It is intended to be a supplemental text in physiology courses taught in pharmacy schools.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an opportunity for integrative thinking in the areas of pharmacy and pathophysiology/physiology, and is intended to supplement these courses. The book uses an organ system approach.
Audience: "The book is written primarily for students; for instructors who use this book, an answer key is available separately from the publisher. However, several times when trying to access the web site included for instructors (as I am a pharmacy educator), I got error messages or an incorrect web link. "
Features: This book, although introductory, may be too advanced for PY1 pharmacy students to work on their own, but it is a great review for upper year professional pharmacy students who need to be reminded of basic physiology when going through course work in pathophysiology and disease state drug therapeutics. The cases seem general enough that they should apply to any physiology course taught in pharmacy school curricula.
Assessment: The book may be a nice supplement for educators to obtain ideas for case examples for their courses.
