Pathophysiology: Clinical Concepts of Disease Processes
Edition 6 Revised edition
Overview"Pathophysiology: Clinical Concepts of Disease Processes" is a comprehensive textbook with a traditional focus and presentation of content. It uses a body-system approach to studying diseases and integrates basic science with clinical practice, focusing on the alterations in biologic processes that affect the body's equilibrium. Since the content is not specific to nursing, the text can be used in biology and allied health departments as well as nursing. Favourite features are readability, shorter, more focused chapters, and end-of-chapter study questions. The text includes introductory chapters on concepts such as inflammation and repair that affect all body systems to provide a foundation for understanding disease processes and contains approximately 725 illustrations to help clarify difficult concepts and demonstrate normal and disease processes. New and revised chapters now offer increased coverage of heredity, environment, and disease, cerebrovascular disease, adrenal insufficiency, infections of the genital tract, white blood cell and plasma cell disorders, anatomy of the cardiovascular system, physiology of the cardiovascular system, cardiac mechanical dysfunction and circulatory support, seizure disorders, pancreas: glucose metabolism and diabetes mellitus, and female reproductive system disorders. The book is supported by a MERLIN website featuring student resources and instructor resources. Students will be able to access additional study questions, chapter objectives, key terms with definitions, and web links, while the faculty can obtain the instructor's resource manual, test bank, and case studies online. Instructor resource materials will also be available on a CD-ROM.
