Thieme, 2010 - Medical - 433 pages

Concise and packed with instructive detail, the second edition of this
bestselling full-color atlas is the ideal choice for students. It includes the
latest scientific knowledge about molecular and genetic causes of disease and
promising new therapies.

Each two-page color spread shows the causal
relationships between disturbances of physiologic processes and explains the
resulting malfunction and illness. Color illustrations carry the reader through
sections on temperature and energy, blood, respiration, the kidney, the
digestive system, the heart and circulation, metabolism, hormones, and the
neuromuscular and sensory system. Throughout the book, the authors provide brief
informational nuggets that review basic physiology.

Features of the second edition:

  • New and timely information on adult respiratory
    distress syndrome, hyperoxia, oxidative stress, polycystic kidney disease,
    chronic inflammatory bowel disease, metabolic syndrome, copper metabolism and
    Wilson's Disease, and disproteinemas

  • 190 full-color illustrations - clearly organized and
    systematically color-coded - that clarify complex relationships

  • Thorough coverage of abnormalities of intercellular
    signal transmission, aging and life expectancy, pathophysiology of bone, and
    heart failure, and more

  • Highlighting of key words and paragraphs for easy

The second edition of Color Atlas of Pathophysiology is an essential
companion for students during their clinical studies, both as a study tool and
as a key reference. It also serves as a handy refresher for clinicians and allied health professionals.
