Characterised by its friendly and accessible writing style, each chapter of Anatomy & Physiology, Adapted International Edition, comes with a range of helpful learning features such as Study Hints, Chapter Outlines, Language of Science and Medicine lists, Case Studies, Chapter Summaries and Review- and Critical Thinking Questions. The volume also boasts over 1400 images together with the unique underlying themes entitled the 'Big Picture' and 'Cycle of Life', which serve to emphasize the importance of the interrelationship between systems of the body and how these systems are influenced, in turn, by development and aging. Alongside this emphasis on interdependence and change, comes a focus on homeostasis, which enables the reader to see how the healthy body is one that is carefully tuned and that disease can readily occur when internal balance is disrupted.
Anatomy and Physiology, Adapted International Edition, has been fully updated to make full reference European healthcare systems, including drugs, relevant investigations and local treatment protocols. The also book comes with an extensive website facility and accompanying Brief Atlas of the Human Body and Quick Guide to the Language of Science and Medicine.
Anatomy & Physiology, Adapted International Edition, will be ideal for students of nursing and allied health professions, biomedical and paramedical science, operating department practice, complementary therapy and massage therapy, as well as anyone studying BTEC (or equivalent) human biology.
