Case Based Medical Physiology is a new text book using nearly 20 patient cases to illustrate the role of normal and disordered physiology in medicine. It is aimed at medical students in all years and at junior doctors preparing for specialist qualification.

Each case is thoroughly discussed through the use of patient histories, physical examination, investigations and management of common conditions where disordered physiology is involved. Over 60 illustrations reinforce an understanding of basic physiological mechanisms.

A problem–based learning approach is used which includes Question and Answer sections and a final Case Review.

Case Based Medical Physiology is designed as a resource for medical students and junior doctors to be used as a revision aid prior to examinations and OSCEs.

"(Case–Based Medical Physiology) would encourage students in the health sciences to review and apply their understanding of the underlying physiology and basic anatomy of a number of common clinical situations. The progressive nature of the narratives and the well–placed questions should encourage students to develop a systematic approach to understanding basic mechanisms in health and disease. It would make an excellent guide for independent group discussion and study."
