The senses of human hearing and sight are often taken for granted by many individuals until they are lost or adversely affected. Millions of individuals suffer from partial or total hearing loss and millions of others have impaired vision. The technologies associated with augmenting these two human senses range from simple hearing aids to complex cochlear implants, and from (now commonplace) intraocular lenses to complex artificial corneas. Sensory Organs addresses the areas of human hearing and human sight in detail, also describing the associated array of technologies.

This updated third edition includes outstanding coverage of basic anatomy and physiology, plus the mechanisms of disease and pathologic conditions associated with each body system. Two unifying themes are integrated in this comprehensive text: the complementary nature of structure and function, and homeostasis. Homeostasis is used to show how normal structure and function are maintained, whereas failures of homeostasis are shown as basic mechanisms of disease. The reader is drawn into the subject by a clear, straightforward style, superior illustrations, and student-friendly features. Included FREE with the softcover text is Body Spectrum: Mosby's Electronic Anatomy Coloring Book CD-ROM. Clinical Applications (answers in back of book) at the end of each chapter are short case studies with questions that tie theory to practice A Chemistry Appendix discusses basic chemistry concepts needed for understanding basic anatomy and physiology Cadaver photos go one step beyond illustrations by providing a true visualization of the human body Detailed Outline Summaries at the end of each chapter provide the student with an excellent recap of important chapter content. Pathologic Conditionsappendix provides student with a series of tables that summarize specific pathological conditions by characteristic Medical Terminologyappendix provides a list of word parts commonly used in terms related to medicine and pathology along with tips on dissecting complex terms to determine their meanings Clinical Laboratory Values appendix provides commonly observed values for human body content and physiological conditions along with their normal ranges Boxed essays highlighting clinical examples to reinforce the concepts of how disease affects normal function and how therapies can restore normal function; health and wellness issues to reinforce the basic concepts of human structure and function by applying them in practical ways to current problems in health Study Tipswith collaborative learning activities are now listed at the end of each chapter to assist the student in how best to study the chapter materials, making this text even more student friendly than ever before. A new design and updated art program makes this edition even more attractive and motivating for the beginning anatomy and physiology student

Philip's Guide to the Human Body covers anatomy and physiology, functions of organs and systems, and disease and treatment. The book divides into two main sections. The first forms an illustrated handbook to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The full-colour anatomical drawings are of superb quality, and show everything from the bones and muscles to the structure of the important organs, such as the liver. The artworks are clear and instructive with detailed annotations and captions. Informative and accessible text explains all details of the artworks and the functioning of the various organs and systems. It also points to the diseases that may affect these organs.The second part of the book provides articles, arranged alphabetically, covering diseases, treatments, medicines, and a wide range of medical terms to form a concise medical encyclopedia for both instant reference and for study. All the terms are explained in clear, straightforward language. Useful illustrations, charts and diagrams complement the text, which is fully cross-referenced.There is a large and established market for books on the human body, with purchasers ranging from students working on school projects to those studying nursing, with a large degree of interest from general readers. Philip's Guide to the Human Body is aimed at readers from 14 to adult.

This text provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of pediatric nursing relevant to the practical/vocational nurse. Discussion of current issues and trends includes family and cultural considerations, as well as patient/family teaching and community/home care. A separate unit on growth and development focuses on health promotion and nutrition, providing a solid foundation for understanding nursing care for common disorders. The text is presented in a clear, readable writing style to hold the students' interest and promote understanding. Nursing care stresses assessment and intervention based on NANDA diagnoses. Numerous boxes, tables, and illustrations add visual appeal, as well as support and summarize the narrative. Common disorders are presented by body system; this organization provides a logical framework that can be blended with a medical-surgical text in programs using a life-span approach. Nursing process framework includes data collection, goals and expected outcomes, and nursing interventions. Stresses the LPN/LVN role in gathering comprehensive assessment data to assist in developing diagnoses and evaluating effectiveness of care. Focus on family teaching encourages health promotion and self care. Addresses cultural/religious considerations to ensure that the child and family's beliefs and practices are incorporated in care. Discusses home and community-based care to prepare students to work in these now common settings. Pediatric Pearls provide practical tips and alert students to important considerations for care. Case studies and corresponding care plans provide clear guidelines for individualizing care to meet specific patient needs. Learning aids in each chapter include learning objectives, key terms, and key concepts to help students focus on essential information; critical thinking questions included at the end of each chapter promote the development of decision-making skills.
