Now in its Ninth Edition, Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology continues to set the standard for short-course A&P texts with an enhanced media package, an updated art program, and new "active learning" features that help allied health students better visualize and understand the structure and function of the human body. Elaine Marieb's clear and friendly writing style emphasizes the relevance of anatomy and physiology to students' lives and careers. It clarifies concepts, defines key terms, and offers just the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage to make the content complete without being overwhelming.While many authors merely condense a two-semester text to meet a one-semester need, Elaine Marieb wrote this book specifically for the one-semester course and continues to carefully select a range of material that proves just right for the shorter course. New information on hot topics like DNA fingerprinting, contraception, stem cell research, and obesity draws students into the material, while a flexible topic structure allows instructors to choose a chapter sequence to meet virtually any need. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
This is a lab manual for a college-level human anatomy course. Mastery of anatomy requires a fair amount of memorization and recall skills. The activities in this manual encourage students to engage with new vocabulary in many ways, including grouping key terms, matching terms to structures, recalling definitions, and written exercises. Most of the activities in this manual utilize anatomical models, and several dissections of animal tissues and histological examinations are also included. Each unit includes both pre- and post-lab questions and six lab exercises designed for a classroom where students move from station to station. The vocabulary terms used in each unit are listed at the end of the manual and serve as a checklist for practicals.
This book contains an integrated presentation of human anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology. A General Part deals with the functions of the cell and with tissue histology, basic concepts of pathology, transport and excitation processes, and an introduction to medical terminology. A Special Part treats the anatomical structure, the physiological functions and the pathophysiological disorders of the individual organs. The anatomical aspects are considered only as far as they are necessary for the understanding of organ function. The book arises from practical experience in training pharmacists in Germany, where it is a very successful course book, a reflection of the competence and thoroughness of its authors. The book is also unique in its integrated approach in that normal functions and disfunctions of tissues and organs are not dealt with separately, but are closely interrelated. With its didactic purpose in mind in designing the text, every effort has been made to keep the organization easy to follow, the presentation clear, and the figures informative. This special layout and text sequence make it a very usable textbook, already strongly recommended by reviewers.
Human Biology is a textbook on human biology and presents facts and details about a number of diseases as well as organ transplants, antibiotics, and anesthetics. Other topics include world food, drug addiction, smoking, and lung cancer and the effects of radioactivity. The important subject of environmental pollution is also discussed. Some of the common disorders and diseases of the various systems are mentioned at the end of the chapters in addition to the characteristics of certain specified diseases. Comprised of 34 chapters, this book begins with an overview of man and his origins, as well as human biology and the human body. The discussion then turns to cell structure and tissues; the skin; the skeletal system; and joints. The biochemistry of foodstuffs is also examined, along with digestion and the alimentary system; the cardiovascular system; maintenance of body temperature; the genital system and reproduction; and hormones and the endocrine system. In addition, the book considers antibiotics, drugs, and anesthetics, as well as vectors and other parasites affecting humans. This monograph is intended for student nurses and potential medical students, as well as for non-science students and general readers who wish to learn something about the human body and its health.

This updated second edition brings together text, video, full-colour illustrations, interactive activities and more, to provide nursing students with a comprehensive guide to understanding the healthy functioning of the human body.
Elementary level study of anatomy and physiology written from a Christian perspective.
Understanding Human Anatomy and Pathology: An Evolutionary and Developmental Guide for Medical Students provides medical students with a much easier and more comprehensive way to learn and understand human gross anatomy by combining state-of-the-art knowledge about human anatomy, evolution, development, and pathology in one book. The book adds evolutionary, pathological, and developmental information in a way that reduces the difficulty and total time spent learning gross anatomy by making learning more logical and systematic. It also synthesizes data that would normally be available for students only by consulting several books at a time. Anatomical illustrations are carefully selected to follow the style of those seen in human anatomical atlases but are simpler in their overall configuration, making them easier to understand without overwhelming students with visual information. The book’s organization is also more versatile than most human anatomy texts so that students can refer to different sections according to their own learning styles. Because it is relatively short in length and easily transportable, students can take this invaluable book anywhere and use it to understand most of the structures they need to learn for any gross anatomy course.
