More About This Textbook

Overview

Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews: Physiology brings physiology clearly into focus. Brand new to the LIR arsenal, it tells the story of who we are, how we live, and, ultimately, how we die. By first identifying organ function and then showing how cells and tissues are designed to fulfill that function, LIR Physiology decodes this discipline like no other text or review book. Each element was tailored for ease of use and fast content absorption, all combining to bring this story to life for readers. Visionary artwork, Clinical Applications, and Unit Review Questions teach and reinforce the most essential concepts in physiology—perfect for classroom learning and test/boards preparation!

Features:

More than 600 lively, full-color illustrations, the hallmark of the LIR series, painstakingly, and often humorously (watch for the jokes!), guide readers step by step through complex processes.
       
        Overviews and Chapter Summaries set clear goals for topic mastery and reemphasize essential concepts from each chapter in a coherent framework.

Clinical Applications boxes and clinical images encourage readers to apply their knowledge, taking them from the classroom to the bedside.

Margin Example Equation boxes and in-text boxes highlight memorable information and keep physiology in a real-world context.

Consistent outline format makes critical information easy to access and assimilate.

Cross references and Infolinks to topics within this book are keyed to page headers to expedite location and are also provided for topics in other LIR books for an interdisciplinary grasp of key concepts.

Unit-review questions in board-review style test understanding of fundamental concepts as well as the ability to draw connections among multiple organ systems.

Bonus Material:

Full-color animations, accessible via , which bring physiologic concepts to life.

USMLE and COMLEX-style questions and online access to the fully searchable text are available via .

Study resources include a map cross-referencing BRS Physiology to LIR Physiology that gives users a more complete explanation of a difficult concept.
