Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

BRS Physiology Cases and Problems, Second Edition includes 56 case-based problems and questions that encourage medical students to integrate, problem solve, and think critically. Organized by body system, each chapter provides case studies, questions, and problems followed by complete explanations and solutions including diagrams, graphs, and charts. The book contains most relevant medical physiology and pathophysiology information, and integrates complex information across organ systems. It is helpful for traditional course material and a valuable tool for a clinical vignette review in preparation for the USMLE Step 1 exam. This revised and updated edition includes new cases and more illustrations.
