Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States, Volume 1

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005 - Medical - 1582 pages

This is the Seventh Edition of the comprehensive and well-respected text and reference of pathophysiology. As a nurse-physiologist, Carol Porth uniquely emphasizes "concepts" of altered health states, as opposed to factual descriptions of diseases and disorders. By taking this physiologic approach, the author ensures a comprehension of the whole of body function. By integrating all of the aspects of the human body into a total functional whole, the student can grasp both the physical and psychological aspects of altered health.

A back-of-book CD-ROM includes three-dimensional animations of pathophysiology.
