Clinical Applications of Pathophysiology: Assessment, Diagnostic Reasoning, and Management
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF PATHOPHYSIOLOGY explains and illustrates how pathophysiological concepts are used in clinical practice. By understanding the underlying pathophysiologic processes, clinicians can effectively interpret clinical manifestations, choose evaluative studies, initiate appropriate therapies, and anticipate potential complications. This outstanding workbook, organized by body system, covers 27 of the most commonly encountered health problems in clinical practice. Each chapter provides an in-depth summary of the disease including its definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, patient presentation (history, symptoms, and examination), differential diagnosis, and keys to evaluation and management. Applications of pathophysiologic principles in the clinical setting are illustrated with realistic case studies. Questions relating to patient history, physical examination findings, lab and diagnostic studies, therapies, and follow-up care are integrated throughout to promote continuous critical thinking.
