Understanding pathophysiology is the first step toward clinical medicine. This book presents the most important mechanisms of how disease develops in nearly 200 vivid color plates accompanied by clear text. Every double page, with text on the left and pictures on the right, gives a rapid and complete overview of its topic.
The contents are organized systematically and a color-coded thumb index makes it easy to navigate through the book. Where necessary for clarity, the basics of physiology are explained again.
Numerous clinical references illustrate the links between theory and practice. The pocket atlas has been fully revised and updated for the third edition. It now includes detailed information about malaria, energy metabolism, eating disorders, and obesity. Color Atlas of Pathophysiology is the ideal supplement to Color Atlas of Physiology!
Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE®: Medical Physiology is the choice of medical students...
...The major test-prep resources do not focus on these subjects in detail. A question bank...would be beneficial to those who struggle with these as an additional resource for studying... - Ethan Young (Fourth-year medical student, University of South Dakota, Sanford School of Medicine)
...Very well written in step 1 format, with very good explanations-which is one of the most helpful parts of a prep question set... Succinct but comprehensive in helping me to understand more about each of the other answers listed (and easy for me to see why they are wrong). â? Chris Moser (Third-year medical student, Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine)
Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE®: Medical Physiology from Gabi Waite and Maria Sheakley transforms high-yield concepts into challenging multiple choice questions organized by body system. Readers will learn how to synthesize, integrate, and apply physiological concepts to clinical situations in a format mirroring the USMLE® exam.
More than 750 USMLE®-style multiple choice questions on physiology and pathophysiology, categorized as easy, moderate, and difficult, with detailed explanations
Questions begin with a clinical vignette and approximately 20% are image-based, mirroring the USMLE-format.
Every question tagged by organ system, difficulty level, disease, and normal, abnormal or therapeutic process, enabling electronic format question sorting
This essential resource will help you assess your knowledge and fully prepare for board examinations.
The 13th edition of Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology continues this bestselling title's long tradition as the world’s foremost medical physiology textbook. Unlike other textbooks on this topic, this clear and comprehensive guide has a consistent, single-author voice and focuses on the content most relevant to clinical and pre-clinical students. The detailed but lucid text is complemented by didactic illustrations that summarize key concepts in physiology and pathophysiology. Larger font size emphasizes core information around how the body must maintain homeostasis in order to remain healthy, while supporting information and examples are detailed in smaller font and highlighted in pale blue. Summary figures and tables help quickly convey key processes covered in the text. Bold full-color drawings and diagrams. Short, easy-to-read, masterfully edited chapters and a user-friendly full-color design. Brand-new quick-reference chart of normal lab values on the inside back cover. Increased number of figures, clinical correlations, and cellular and molecular mechanisms important for clinical medicine. Student Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience includes the complete text, interactive figures, references, plus 50 self-assessment questions and more than a dozen animations.
For a comprehensive understanding of human physiology - from molecules to systems -turn to the latest edition of Medical Physiology. This updated textbook is known for its unparalleled depth of information, equipping students with a solid foundation for a future in medicine and healthcare, and providing clinical and research professionals with a reliable go-to reference. Complex concepts are presented in a clear, concise, andlogically organized format to further facilitate understanding and retention.
Clear, didactic illustrations visually present processes in a clear, concise manner that is easy to understand.
Intuitive organization and consistent writing style facilitates navigation and comprehension.
Takes a strong molecular and cellular approach that relates these concepts to human physiology and disease.
New to this Edition
Student Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience includes access -- on a variety of devices -- to the complete text with thorough hyperlinking, images, 10 animations, and copious linkout notes prepared by the Editors.
An increased number of clinical correlations provides a better understanding of the practical applications of physiology in medicine.
