  • Applied Pathophysiology

    Applied Pathophysiology, 3e

    A Conceptual Approach to the Mechanisms of Disease

    Carie Braun, Cindy Anderson

    Emphasizing application of knowledge, active learning strategies, critical thinking, and evidence-based practice, this updated 3rd Edition of Applied Pathophysiology: A Conceptual Approach to the Mechanisms of Disease explores pathophysiology through the lens of body function concepts and what happens when function is altered through injury or disease.
     
    This novel approach helps students understand that diseases are rarely confined to one body system and challenges them to apply what they’ve learned to a range of diseases, rather than trying to memorize facts about specific conditions. In the process, they learn to think about pathophysiology in the same way practioners do in a clinical setting—by working from symptoms to the cause, rather than the other way around.
     
    The 3rd Edition features much that is new including a new chapter on mental illnesses, new case studies in every chapter, and a wide range of new clinically-focused features.

  • The Human Body

    The Human Body, 3e

    Concepts of Anatomy and Physiology

    Bruce Wingerd
    The new edition of Bruce Wingerd's The Human Body: Concepts of Anatomy and Physiology helps encourage learning through concept building, and is truly written with the student in mind. Learning Concepts divide each chapter into easily absorbed subunits of information, making learning more achievable. Since students in a one-semester course may have little experience with biological and chemical concepts, giving them tools such as "concept statements," "concept check" questions, and a "concept block study sheet" at the end of each chapter help them relate complex ideas to simple everyday events. The book also has a companion Student Notebook and Study Guide (available separately) that reinvents the traditional study guide by giving students a tool to help grasp information in class and then reinforce learning outside of class. With additional, powerful options like PrepU and the ADAM Interactive Anatomy Online Student Lab Activity Guide, students have access to learning activities to help them study, understand, and retain critical course information.
