Overview

This easy-to-read textbook provides you with the basic concepts of pathophysiology and the processes of specific diseases with the most accurate, up-to-date information on the treatments, manifestations, and mechanisms of disease. Understanding Pathophysiology, 4th Edition offers complete coverage in clear and concise detail with extensive full-color illustrations to make learning pathophysiology easy.

• Consistent presentation of each disease includes pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and evaluation and treatment to make remembering and learning information easier.
• Extensive collection of 900 photographs and illustrations vividly illustrate normal anatomy and physiology, cellular mechanisms, disease processes, and clinical manifestations of disease.
• UNIQUE! Health Alert boxes discuss a broad range of topics from new research, diagnostic studies, preventative care, and more.
• UNIQUE! Quick Check questions at the end of major sections promote critical thinking to help you apply your knowledge to real-life situations.
• UNIQUE! Risk Factor boxes illustrate the risk factors associated with specific diseases.
• Pediatric content presented in nine separate chapters provides thorough coverage of how various disease processes specifically affect children.
• Special headings highlight aging content within adult chapters to help you address the specialized needs of older patients.
• Did you Understand? end-of-chapter summaries help you review the major concepts presented in each chapter.
• Disease pathways throughout illustrate normal and compensatory physiology and pathophysiology.

• Includes extensively updated content based on the most current research available.
• Approximately 200 new full-color drawings, as well as hundreds of improved illustrations, clarify concepts to make content more easily understandable.
• Over 50 new Health Alert boxes present the most current research available.
• Electronic Resources listed at the beginning of each chapter direct you to additional materials on the companion CD and Evolve site.
• A glossary of over 850 terms helps you learn the often-difficult terminology related to pathophysiology.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Roxanne Pickett Hauber, PhD, RN (Georgia State University School of Nursing)
Description: This book presents pathophysiology affecting both adults and children, using a streamlined approach to address the key content regarding pathophysiology.
Purpose: The book was developed to offer a simplified, more elementary version of the authors' text Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children. The book is designed to highlight essential pathophysiology content in a basic and easy-to-understand manner.
Audience: Although the authors only specify faculty and students, it is my opinion that this book clearly targets baccalaureate undergraduate students.
Features: Of particular strength are the chapters in part 1 of the book that help move the student into a more conceptual approach to altered patterns in physiological function. In addition, the frequent use of well-delineated diagrams facilitates a concise presentation of material. Last, the "Did You Understand" section at the end of each chapter isolates crucial aspects of the chapter.
Assessment: This book is a more simplified version of the authors' excellent text. It is an excellent textbook for pathophysiology in baccalaureate nursing programs. Its frequent use of tables and diagrams makes for concise presentation, quick referencing, and excellent teaching aides. The "Did You Know" section at the end of each chapter cues the student to crucial points in the chapter. The content is written by individuals recognized as experts in their areas. The book is addressing a need in the field for a more conceptual approach to pathophysiology at the undergraduate level.

From the Publisher

"It explains basic celluar biology, genetics and the immune response in health, before disucssing how these can be altered in disease..The text is well written and it is clear that the authors aim to make difficult concepts readily understandable. Extensive high-quality artwork complements he text and the images illstrating disease descriptions help the reader to visualise the information...there is excellent information on 'lifespan alterations', with a particular focus on paediatrics and ageing.The extensive online materials on the associated Evolve website look fantastic, with useful review questions, animations, critical thinking questions and weblinks. Overall, this an exceptional resource that I would recommend highly to all those with an interest in pathophysiology."
