Case Files: Physiology (Lange Case Files)by Eugene C. Toy
Synopses & Reviews
REAL LIFE CLINICAL CASES FOR THE COURSE EXAMS AND USMLE STEP 1
"This extremely useful book reinforces the relationship between basic science and clinical medicine for students. It will help them either review or learn basic physiology as it applies to medicine, which should strengthen their diagnostic and therapeutic skills. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
You need exposure to clinical cases to pass course exams and ace the USMLE Step 1. Case Files: Physiology presents 50 real-life clinical cases illustrating essential concepts in microbiology. Each case includes and easy-to-understand discussion correlated to key basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, physiology pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. This interactive system helps you learn instead of memorize.
Book News Annotation:
Updated to include new cases and questions, as well as advances in research and recent changes in practice, this study guide includes 51 clinical cases with USMLE-style questions, clinical pearls, and an introductory primer on how to approach clinical problems. The authors begin by applying basic sciences to clinical medicine, covering approaches to learning physiology, approaches to disease, and approaches to reading research. The 51 case scenarios range widely and include such issues as diabetes, head trauma, Motor System problems, renal problems, style cord injury, reproductive physiology, conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, hemorrhage, and a full range of conditions based upon laboratory results. The index pinpoints specific complaints within the clinical cases, but the authors include listings by case number and also by disorder. The result is a well-organized study guide that can double as a classroom supplement or as a refresher. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
More than 50 high-yield physiology cases, each with USMLE-format review questions, help medical students excel in the physiology course and ace the USMLE Step 1.
