Overview

With a body systems approach that combines anatomy and physiology with clinical information on basic mechanisms of disease and pathological conditions, "The Human Body in Health and Disease", 2nd Edition steps beyond ordinary A&P. Dominated by two unifying themes - the complementary nature of structure and function and homeostasis - the new second edition clearly and accurately describes the body when it is working properly and when it is out of balance. The integrating principle of homeostasis is used to show how "normal" structure and function is achieved and maintained. Failures of homeostasis are shown as basic mechanisms of disease. Boxed essays on exercise physiology, general interest, home health care boxes, and clinical applications present A&P basics in a way that informs and motivates students.

Covers the endocrine system, genetics & genetic diseases, etc.
