Overview

This book organizes information in a framework appropriate for medical students. It presents important events and concepts in the context of their biological function rather than as chemical entities. Useful two-color illustrations focus on mechanisms rather than chemical structures. The primary focus of the book is to foster an understanding of the events and processes that are occurring at both the molecular and macro levels of physiologic regulation, clinical effects, and interactions.

High-quality, two-color illustrations help explain mechanisms, reactions and processes. Helpful tables focus on important facts for quick access. Summaries at the end of chapters reinforce key concepts. USMLE-style questions at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to test their knowledge. Case studies sharpen the book's clinical focus. Boldface key terms provide a quick recognition and review source
