Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This concise book for students covers major diseases and disorders, assuming that they have some familiarity with human anatomy and physiology.
Purpose: Although there is no preface, the author states at the beginning of the first chapter that most students can better understand normal anatomy and physiology by examining situations in which diseases or disorders impair the normal functioning body.
Audience: Presumably, the book is intended for healthcare students.
Features: Most of the chapters are dedicated to specific organ systems. Each chapter is organized into four main sections: tests, procedures, and techniques; disorders; additional clinical considerations; and medical terminology. Photos, drawings, and images appear throughout.
Assessment: This unique book has a lot of information for its size. Well written and easy to understand, it would be a terrific resource for healthcare students during their clinicals.
