Textbook Of Medical Physiology
The book presents an exhaustive and thorough exposition of the fundamentals of medical physiology. The exposition is divided systematically into three sections covering General Physiology, Systemic Physiology and Specialized Integrative Physiology. Each section begins with a brief Introduction highlighting the topics covered. The subject is then explained in a graded manner with a large number of tables, flowcharts and diagrams to aid understanding. The level of exposition in the book is sufficiently detailed for it to serve as a useful text for undergraduate courses as well as for PG entrance examinations
