Now in its Seventh Edition, Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology continues to set the standard for a quality text that zeros in on the needs of allied health students.Award-winning author Elaine N. Marieb brings her unique understanding of students' specific needs to this popular text, which has introduced countless allied health students to the structure and function of the human body.Marieb's clear and friendly writing style emphasizes the relevance of anatomy and physiology to students' lives and careers. It clarifies concepts, defines key terms, and offers just the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage to make the content complete without being overly detailed.Updated to reflect current teaching in the field, the new Seventh Edition features a careful, dynamic, and accurate art program to help students better visualize the human body, with special emphasis on the skull, bone, and muscle.While many authors merely condense a two-semester text to meet a one-semester need, Elaine Marieb carefully selects a range of topics that proves just right for the shorter course. Plus, a flexible topic structure allows instructors to choose a chapter sequence to meet virtually any need.
