Welcome everyone to your guide to Human Anatomy & Physiology 2! This text will cover endocrine system, blood, heart, arteries, veins, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, water, electrolytes, acids, reproductive system and development. I have been teaching college level human anatomy and physiology for many years, as well as other courses. My other classes taught have included: pathophysiology, biology, zoology, microbiology, and others. In this time I have seen thousands of students. I have learned through the years the best ways to learn the most information in the least amount of time. There are two ways to study, smart or hard. If you will follow my information and learn the key points of each chapter, you will make an excellent grade in your A&P class. In each chapter concentrate your efforts on learning the key terms. The key terms are the ones you are most likely to see on your exams. Learn to associate words and how to connect them. For example, anatomy is the study of the structure of the human body. Look at the key words in this sentence, anatomy and structure. Learn how to pick out these key terms and remember them, not the entire sentence or paragraph full of information. When given a paragraph, page or whatever; just memorize the key words and then learn how to associate them. Learn what they have in common and be able to speak from one word to the next. This will be the best way to learn your anatomy text. I will make the assumption that anyone reading this book is taking human anatomy and physiology. You will still need your text, but more as a reference to pictures and such. This guide will give you the important information from the chapters, which will be what you are most likely to see on an exam. Sample questions will be included, which are also the most likely for you to see on an exam. Note also that this book is not a guide for A&P lab. An anatomy lab book is little more than a book with lots of pictures in it. That is what anatomy is, memorizing parts and pieces of the body. You simply look at the picture in your book and then learn those parts on a model. You may be looking at a skull, brain, kidney, etc., it is simple memorization. This book is more to help you with the lecture.
"Organized around the central theme of homeostasis--how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to function--Human physiology helps you appreciate the integrated functioning of the human body. Author Lauralee Sherwood uses clear, straightforward language, analogies, and frequent references to everyday experiences to help you learn and relate to physiology concepts. The vibrant art program and empowering digital resources--including robust 3D animations and rich homework problems --enable you to visualize important concepts and processes. By focusing on the core principles and sharing enthusiasm for the subject matter, Sherwood helps you develop a solid foundation for future courses and careers in the health profession"--Publisher's description.
Second edition of Textbook of Human Physiology for Dental Students has been thoroughly revised and updated in view of the advances in this field without changing its general organization. In this book core and applied aspects of human physiology have been skillfully intermingled to enable students to apply their learning in clinical situations. Tailor-made for BDS students as per the requirements laid down by the Dental Council of India (DCI). Text organized in such a way that the students can easily understand, retain and reproduce it. Various levels of headings, subheadings, boldface and italics to help in quick revision of the subject. Black and white figures replaced by coloured ones and each section presented in a different colour format to enhance lucidity of the book. Brief introduction to the relevant functional anatomy preceding the description of the physiological aspects in each section for better understanding of the subject. In order to emphasize the clinical significance of physiology relevant applied aspects have been covered adequately in each chapter. Essential aspects of the text have been highlighted in separate boxes.
This text explores how component behavior produces system behavior in physiological systems. Through text explanation, figures, and equations it provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of physiological principles with an emphasis on quantitative aspects. Geared to undergraduate students who are less familiar with biological concepts but who have successfully completed typical first-year engineering mathematics, including differential and integral calculus and some differential equations. A quantitative approach that includes physical and chemical principles An integrated approach from first principles, integrating anatomy, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology. Illustration program reinforces the integrated nature of physiological systems Pedagogically rich, including chapter objectives, chapter summaries, large number of illustrations, and short chapters suitable for single lectures Clinical applications relevant to the biomedical engineering student (TENS, cochlear implants, blood substitutes, etc.) Problem sets provide opportunity for practice and assessment throughout the course.
