Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Physiology Cases and Problems, Fourth Edition is a collection of carefully selected patient case studies that cover the clinically relevant physiology topics that first and second year medical students need to know for physiology coursework and for the USMLE Step 1. Organized by body system, the book presents cases studies with questions and problems, followed by complete explanations and solutions including diagrams, graphs, and charts. Students may use this book alone, in small groups, or as a complement to BRS Physiology. Either way, it is intended to be a dynamic, working book that challenges its users to think more critically about physiologic principles.

This book includes a number of features to help students master the principles of physiology:

62 cases organized by body system to help students integrate material

Several expanded cases, including myasthenia gravis, atrioventricular conduction block, carbon monoxide poisoning, peptic ulcer disease, galactorrhea and amenorrhea, and prolactinoma

2 new cases on Chronic Renal Failure, Liver Failure and Hepatorenal Syndrome

New full-color interior, tables, and illustrations

Within each case, questions are arranged sequentially so that they intentionally build upon each other

Question difficulty varies from basic to challenging, recognizing the progression that most students make

Major equations are presented in boldface type, followed by explanations of all terms

Key topics are listed at the end of each case so that students may focus their study

Common abbreviations are presented on the inside front cover, and normal values and constants are presented on the inside back cover
