Clinical Applications of Pathophysiology: An Evidence-Based Approach explains and illustrates how pathophysiology concepts are used in clinical situations. This advanced review guide and workbook covers 27 of the most commonly encountered health problems. It outlines the connections between pathophysiology, assessment, diagnosis, and management, with an emphasis on the clinical use of pathophysiology concepts. The application of pathophysiology principles to the clinical setting is illustrated with case studies included in each chapter. Integrated within the case studies are questions relating to patient history, physical examination findings, lab and diagnostic studies, therapies, and follow-up care - each is designed to promote critical thinking and a deeper understanding through application of the concepts presented.
