Pathophysiology: Functional Alterations in Human Health
This pathophysiology text offers a unique conceptual approach that facilitates learning by viewing pathophysiology as health care professionals do. Students will learn about general mechanisms of disease or alterations in human function—such as immune alterations or altered nutrition—and apply these processes to specific conditions.
Chapters focus on fifteen core concepts of altered human function, selected by analyzing and clustering health conditions with high prevalence, incidence, and severity. Unlike a traditional systems-based approach, this novel approach shows how most diseases involve multiple body systems.
A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations and an interactive game. Faculty resources include lesson plans, PowerPoint slides, additional case studies, and student assignment worksheets.

HIV AIDS patho
Studying from this book is difficult. The book is entry level book that is better suited to non health care professionals. to make things even more frustrating the practise tests have no easily accessible answers. In fact I can't find them even online. This books sucks.
