Description

For all combined courses covering anatomy, physiology, and pathology in allied health programs, four year degree programs, military healthcare training centers, and other programs; for standard A&P I and II courses; and as an advanced high school courses.

 

This engaging, conversational book introduces all the anatomy, physiology, and pathology concepts that students must master to succeed in the health professions. It’s designed to promote true understanding, not mere memorization, and to help students make the lasting connections they need to thrive as practitioners. Throughout, well-placed “Pathology Connections” sections tightly link A&P concepts to pathologic processes. Analogies help students compare the human body to objects and processes they already understand, and illustrations and visual features support the visual learning style many of them prefer. This edition adds new web-based animations, videos, and interactive exercises to its fully integrated website. It also offers an easier-to-navigate text design; enriched illustrations and new photographs; and a new chapter on biochemistry.

New to this edition

Extensively revised with easier navigation, cleaner design, far more online interactivity, a better student workbook, and an all-new chapter on biochemistry. 

 

New! All-new chapter on biochemistryexplaining the relationship between chemistry and living organisms, and preparing students more effectively for an understanding of cells and cellular mechanisms.
  • Gives students the basic understanding of biochemistry they need to understand many anatomy, physiology, and pathology concepts 
Expanded! Extensively improved companion website—containing many new animations, short videos, interactive exercises and games; drag-and-drop labeling exercises; expanded information on related diseases, treatments, and diagnostics; related professional profiles and web links; a bonus chapter on nutrition, and more
  • Gives students more hands-on practice and a more intuitive understanding of key body processes

Improved! Enriched illustrations and new micrographs and photos—provide more real-world examples

  • Help students gain an intuitive, visual understanding of the A&P concepts and pathological processes they are most likely to encounter in practice 

New! New text design—makes content easier to locate

  • Helps students find what they’re looking for faster, and encourages deeper engagement 

Improved! Enhanced student workbook—including new visual concept maps and more active learning exercises

  • Gives students more hands-on practice and a deeper intuitive understanding

Improved! Simpler, easy-to-follow organization—relocating the text’s Basic Diagnostic Tests chapter to the end of the book, after all systems are covered; and placing the Nutrition Appendix on the student website

  • Helps improve student comprehension and simplify access to key content

Hallmark Features

 

Enjoyable to read, and linked to students’ everyday lives. Takes a more personal approach that engages students by using real-world analogies and humor wherever appropriate, and encourages mastery rather than mere memorization.

 

Supports more visual, interactive learning. The text contains more illustrations and visual features than ever, and is complemented by a tightly integrated website that reinforces key concepts through videos, animations, and interactive learning experiences.

 

Helps students understand the crucial interconnections among body systems and functions. Links A&P with pathology by placing focused, accessible “Pathology Connections” sections immediately after key A&P concepts are introduced

 

Reinforces key concepts and supports more efficient review. Provides end-of-chapter “Quick Trip” review sessions summarizing system related diseases, with causes, signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, and treatments.

 

Helps students immediately understand the applied sciences related to key A&P concepts and pathologic processes. Provides well-placed Applied Sciences boxes illuminating the science behind key topics such as cellular respiration.

 

Prepares students to apply the text’s information in clinical practice. Includes Clinical Applications boxes that show how to apply knowledge in clinical practice, and also illuminates A&P and disease issues associated with aging.

 

Promotes mastery by introducing topics in multiple ways to support diverse learning styles. Concepts are explained simply, with engaging and intuitively clear analogies; students are then directed to weblinks that reinforce key topics with animations, videos, or interactive exercises.

 

Promotes deeper engagement, enjoyment, and insight through many engaging pedagogical features. Includes special boxed Learning Hints, “That’s Awesome” Amazing Body Facts, and other features designed to help students extend their knowledge, link it to other key topics, and apply it in practice.

 

Integrates diverse concepts and pathologies through realistic case studies. Presents two running case studies: one of a patient with diabetes, and the other of a patient with a spinal cord industry. Throughout the text, these case studies integrate key concepts, demonstrate multi-system effects, understand the patient’s progression; and encourage students to use critical thinking to make clinical connections.

 

Enables students to quickly confirm their understanding of key concepts before moving forward. Places “Test Your Knowledge” questions after blocks of content to help students check their mastery.

Introduces students to common medications used to treat each specific system-related disease. Includes a Pharmacology Corner concisely introducing relevant medicines in each chapter.

 

Introduces students to key body system diagnostic tests. Provides a dedicated chapter on body system diagnostic tests at the end of the book.

 

Helps students learn key medical terminology as they proceed, so specialized jargon is never an obstacle to mastery. Places medical terminology, word roots, suffixes, prefixes, and “see-and-say” pronunciation in the margins, alongside first usage; and supports these with an audio glossary online.

 

Gives students rich reference resources they can rely upon for years. Contains appendices with more information about medical terminology, clinical abbreviations, “Do Not Use” lists, infectious diseases and related pathogens, laboratory reference values, multi-system effects, vitamins and minerals, and both standard and transmission-based precautions. 

 

Gives students tools to study more effectively with less stress. Contains an exclusive Study Success Companion at the end of the book, compiling basic study skills and stress management tips that can be used in all classes, not just A&P.
