  • Porth's Pathophysiology

    Porth's Pathophysiology, 9e

    Concepts of Altered Health States

    Sheila Grossman

    Featuring brilliant art, engaging new case studies, and dynamic new teaching and learning resources, this 9th edition of Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States is captivating, accessible, and student-friendly while retaining the comprehensive, nursing-focused coverage that has made it a market leader. The book’s unique emphasis on “concepts" of altered health states, as opposed to factual descriptions of diseases and disorders, helps students grasp both the physical and psychological aspects of altered health. 

    Drawing on the expertise of new co-author Sheila Grossman, the Ninth Edition maintains its comprehensive depth, while paring down content where appropriate and replacing descriptive content with striking art. (Approximately 600 illustrations are new or have been re-rendered in a consistent modern style.) Also new to this edition are advanced 3D narrated animations that address the most clinically relevant and difficult to understand disorders, engaging unit-opening case studies that reinforce critical thinking and set the tone for the content to come, and a wide range of built-in study tools. 

    Now, for the first time, Porth’s Pathophysiology is supported by  PrepU, an adaptive learning system that help students learn more, while giving instructors the data they need to monitor each student’s progress, strengths, and weaknesses.

  • Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation

    Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation, 5e

    Including Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications

    Karlman Wasserman, James E. Hansen, Darryl Y. Sue, William W. Stringer, Kathy E. Sietsema, Xing-Guo Sun, Brian J. Whipp

    Discover what exercise testing can reveal about cardiopulmonary, vascular, and muscular health. Now in its Fifth Edition, Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation continues to deliver timely information on the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise and their relevance to clinical medicine.

    The text begins by explaining the processes by which cells receive oxygen and dispose of carbon dioxide produced as a byproduct of exercise and metabolism. By measuring gas exchange, we can better evaluate cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary functioning, as well as cellular respiration. Detailed discussions explore various types of exercise intolerance, their effects on test results, and clinical diagnoses. Using real-world cases, the text illustrates how cardiopulmonary exercise testing can evaluate the functional competency of each component in the coupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascular system. Expert authors’ comments, analysis, and conclusions for each case, help to improve readers’ interpretive and diagnostic skills.

  • A Practical Approach to Obstetric Anesthesia

    A Practical Approach to Obstetric Anesthesia, 2e

    Brenda A. Bucklin, Curtis L. Baysinger, David Gambling

The book covers all areas of obstetric anesthesia in considerable detail but content is presented in bite-size, data-driven nuggets, rather than longer-winded prose explanations. The focus of the second edition will remain very clinical but the clinical coverage will be broad-based and meant to appeal to all segments of the market--residents, clinicians, nurse-anesthetists, and even fellows in OB anesthesia, who can use a book like this as a quick refresher and anesthesia-cart reference.
