Summary

This pathophysiology text offers a unique conceptual approach that facilitates learning by viewing pathophysiology as health care professionals do. Students will learn about general mechanisms of disease or alterations in human function--such as immune alterations or altered nutrition--and apply these processes to specific conditions. Chapters focus on fifteen core concepts of altered human function, selected by analyzing and clustering health conditions with high prevalence, incidence, and severity. Unlike a traditional systems-based approach, this novel approach shows how most diseases involve multiple body systems. A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations and an interactive game. Faculty resources include lesson plans, PowerPoint slides, additional case studies, and student assignment worksheets. The LiveAdvise Online Student Tutoring and Teaching Advice, powered by Smarthinking(TM), is now available when you adopt this textbook.
