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)
