A typical human anatomy and physiology textbook contains over one thousand pages and weighs over six pounds. It is not conducive to quick study or a last-minute review when a student is trying to prepare for exams or class lectures. The author has carefully reviewed the major human anatomy and physiology textbooks and incorporated into this guide the main concepts needed by students to meet the challenges of the course and make the grades they need. These points are provided in bulleted lists for quick mastery of the subject matter. The information is provided on each of the following topics and many more: Anatomy terms and physiology concepts Chemistry, including organic and inorganic Cellular level of organization Cardiovascular system Circulatory system Digestive system Immune system Nervous system Nutrition, metabolism, and body temperature regulation Fluid, Electrolytes, and Acid-base balance Human Anatomy and Physiology will help medical, nursing, and students of other health-related disciplines prepare for their classes and exams by providing review questions at the end of every chapter, along with the answers that will enable them to test their knowledge and skill level.
Designed to be user-friendly and informative for both students and teachers, this book provides a road map for understanding problems and issues that arise in the study of anatomy and physiology. Students will find tips to develop specific study skills that lead to maximum understanding and retention. They will learn strategies not only for passing an examination or assessment, but also for permanently retaining the fundamental building blocks of anatomical study and application. For the teacher and educator, the book provides useful insight into practical and effective assessment techniques, explores the subject matter from a learning approach perspective, and considers different methods of teaching to best to convey the message and meaning of anatomy and physiology. Supported by clear diagrams and illustrations, this is a key text for teachers who want a useful toolbox of creative techniques and ideas that will enhance the learning experience. In addition to the wealth of information it provides, Making Sense of Human Anatomy and Physiology sets in place a bedrock of learning skills for future study, regardless of the subject. Students of beauty therapies, holistic and complementary therapies, and fitness professionals--yoga teachers, personal trainers, sports coaches, and dance teachers--will gain not only a basic understanding of anatomy and physiology, but also the skills to learn such a subject. Allied professionals in nursing, biomedical science, dentistry, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, midwifery, zoology, biology and veterinary science will also find this book an invaluable resource. The final chapters offer suggestions for the further exploration of concepts, assessment, learning activities, and applications.
