Publisher Comments:

Body Structures and Function, 11th Edition introduces the basics required for the study of the human body and how it functions in a clear and concise manner. Updated to remain relevant, the text takes the learner from a general introduction to life functions, the terminology used to describe body parts and their locations, to an overall review of human development and body processes. The text begins by reviewing relevant aspects of Chemistry, and discusses basic cell functions, as well as abnormal conditions. Body Structures and Function, 11th Edition, then advances to discuss specific body structures and systems, highlighting disorders of the system, effects of aging and career profiles. Each chapter features Key Objectives, words, medical terminology, lab activities, and a section focused on Applying Theory to Practice and Case Studies. The text is accompanied by a student workbook and StudyWARETM CD-ROM that offer additional practice through interactive quizzes and fun activities that correlate with each chapter in the text.

Synopsis:

Now in its 10th Edition, Body Structures and Functions has been completely updated and now includes great new features like a review of medical terminology, case studies to promote critical thinking, and complete coverage on the effects of aging.

Synopsis:

Body Structures and Functions, Eleventh Edition continues to integrate diseases and disorders within each body system chapter to maximize learning. Easy-to-understand language and numerous illustrations make this book ideal for learners in an introductory anatomy and physiology course with little or no science background. Highlights and features that emphasize clinical applications help keep the material interesting. A review of Medical Terminology in each chapter helps fine tune medical language skills. Infection Control and Standard Precautions chapter emphasizes the importance of maintaining health and safety in the health care work environment.
