Lecture Notes: Human Physiology provides concise coverage of general physiology for medical students as well as students of biological sciences, sport science, pharmacology and nursing. This fifth edition of the ever popular Lecture Notes: Human Physiology has been thoroughly revised and updated by a new international team of authors. The simple structure and systems-based approach remain, with a new clean layout for ease of reading and colour now incorporated to aid understanding. Lecture Notes: Human Physiology: Provides more focus on pathophysiology for clinical relevance Is the perfect introduction for medical and allied health care students Now includes physiology of pain and increased coverage of heart and the vascular system Includes a completely revised chapter on the nervous system.
This superb team of authors and editors provides a highly readable account of 'how the body works.' The book is structured around body systems and includes relevant diseases to illustrate the consequences of what happens when a part of a particular system fails. This book is aimed at students in biological sciences, medicine, dentistry, nutrition, pharmacy, physiotherapy and physical education. The book focuses on the core information required by students but further information is provided in small print for the interested or the more advanced student.
Lecture Notes on Human Physiology provides a concise text for students of medicines, dentistry, pharmacy, physical education, physiotherapy, nutrition, and science who are taking a physiology course for the first time. The text has been carefully edited to ensure uniformity of presentation from the expert contributors and each section is preceded by a synopsis to provide easy access to information.
The present book is compilation of my lecture notes on Human Physiology. This book is an outcome of an idea I got from my students, when I saw them taking print out of my lecture presentations and get them spirally bounded as book to study during whole semesters, especially examination days. The present compilation of important facts & concepts of human physiological system well supported with self-drawn suitable figures are very helpful in revising entire syllabus particularly during examination days when students are running short of time and plenty is there to study. The present book covers almost all human physiological systems starting from Body Fluids to Muscle Physiology, Cardiovascular System, Endocrine System, Nervous System, Respiratory System, Excretory System, Digestive System and Reproductive System. Every chapter is very well supported with proper illustrations, tables and ray diagrams. Altogether about 50 illustrations are included in the book to make the mechanisms/concept easiest to understand by the students. This book shall be helpful to the students of Medical (MBBS/MD/MS), Paramedical, Basic Sciences viz. Zoology & Applied Sciences viz. Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Human Physiology, Life Sciences, Biosciences, Endocrinology, Pharmacy, Home Science, etc. I thank to readers in advance for their all love given to the book. I wish you all success in future endeavors!
This book is a compilation of Human Physiology lecture notes meant specifically for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students as well as biomedical, nursing and other medical-related courses. The contributors of this book are the Universiti Sains Malaysia Physiology lecturers who have strived to present the information as accurately and effectively as possible. The contents are arranged according to body systems which comprise Cell and Tissue, Respiratory System, Cardiovascular System, Gastrointestinal System, Renal System, Nervous System, Endocrine System, Reproductive System and Musculoskeletal System. This book is designed with the following features to facilitate quick revision of relevant Physiology topics: • Compact, concise and readable text • Simplified tables • Colourful figures • Examples of short essay question It is hoped that this book will benefit the readers in one way or another. Happy reading!
Thorough enough to give students a strong grounding in physiological concepts, but accessible and learner-friendly enough for an introductory text, Human Physiology is ideally suited for single-semester human physiology courses. The text grounds students in cellular communication, the autonomic nervous system, and the endocrine system, giving readers the necessary knowledge base on which to build a critical approach to new and unfamiliar problems. Each chapter pushes students to integrate new knowledge into what they have already learned, increasing learner confidence and concept retention. By helping students master the fundamental physiological mechanisms known today, Human Physiology equips them with the skills to integrate the physiological processes that will be discovered in the future.
The sixth edition of this popular text introducing human movement to a range of readers, offers the building blocks, signposts and opportunities to think about the application and integration of basic Human Movement theory. It confirms basic knowledge which is then applied to specific areas. Drawing on the expertise of a range of authors from the healthcare professions, the new edition has adopted a themed approach that links chapters in context. The strength of this current edition is the explicit chapter integration which attempts to mimic the realities of human movement. The themed approach explores the psychosocial influences on movement. Integration is further facilitated by increased cross-referencing between the chapters and the innovative use of one themed case study throughout. Framed about a family unit, this case study enables chapter authors to explicitly apply the content of their chapters to the real world of human movement. Taken as a whole, this more integrated format will enable readers to see the reality and complexity of human movement.
