Allhealthcare students have to study anatomy and physiology. They often find it achallenging subject and struggle to see how the subject will link to theirprofessional practice. Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcareis a brand new textbook focused on what healthcarestudents need to know about the biological principles which underpin thepractice of healthcare. Uniquely,the book integrates clinical cases with the essential biological facts toprovide all students with a thorough understanding of how anatomy andphysiology can be applied in healthcare. Byusing clinical cases throughout, the book helps the reader grasp the practicalrelevance of anatomy and physiology to decision-making and care delivery. Theclinical cases have been carefully selected to reflect common conditionsencountered in practice today, and the changing patterns of disease andhealthcare. Clear high-quality full colour illustrations,links to appropriate web-based content, and self-assessment material make thisthe perfect, practical textbook for all healthcare students.

Anatomy and Physiology is effectively a broad introductory course that requires the student to devote an enormous amount of effort to understand it on even a basic level. While this necessitates time, it can be streamlined in the early stages of one’s learning so that the student may understand why he or she is required to invest such a large amount of time into learning - Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy & Physiology is the textbook that accomplishes this. Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy & Physiology is a book that combines both areas of knowledge for a full comprehension of the human body. It is targeted to healthcare students in need of a better understanding of human physiology to combine with their clinical training. The main objective of this book is to elucidate the organization and functioning of the major Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy & Physiology is a book that combines both areas of knowledge for a full comprehension of the human body. It is targeted to healthcare students in need of a better understanding of human physiology to combine with their clinical training. The main objective of this book is to elucidate the organization and functioning of the major organs and systems with an emphasis on the applications of this knowledge on the daily clinical routine. One of the main differences of this textbook that sets it apart from others is that it not only provides the information: it also contextualizes it. Every chapter starts introducing a case study that is related to the content that is going to be approached. At the end of the chapter, there is the conclusion of each case study, which presents the final diagnosis showing every step of the process. This context is essential so that, when the student faces this situation in the real-life clinic he or she will be able to deal with it efficiently. Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy & Physiology also has sections of questions to practice the knowledge that was obtained during the chapter, and the answers to each question are explained so no doubts remain after studying. All of this means that Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy & Physiology is a fully rounded book that combines information and practical applications, as well as questions that help the student to understand and retain all the information in a very efficient and effective way. This book has all the information you need to get started on your journey to learning about the human body.

This new edition provides a basic overview of anatomy and physiology with clinical applications. The normal aspects of anatomy and physiology are presented, as well as the common disease processes affecting various body systems and the techniques for diagnosis and treatment. The first two chapters introduce aspects of chemistry and microbiology that are related to health care. The major part of the text is arranged in alternating chapters. First, the anatomy and physiology of a particular body system is discussed. The following chapter then explains the common diagnostic procedures and pathology of the particular system. Since the previous edition of this text was written, advances in medical technology have resulted in major, more sophisticated changes in diagnostic testing, procedures and treatment. As a result, this edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the latest technology.
