DESCRIERE

The thirteenth edition of this classic text continues and further enriches the rich legacy of the previous editions. In a clear and authoritative style, this edition explains the basic principles of physiology while emphasizing their clinical significance in day-to-day medical practice. Key features: provides an authentic and in-depth understanding of the basic concepts. Highlights the clinical significances of these processes includes thorough revisions and updates throughout the text. Exhaustive revision of the sections central and peripheral neurophysiology and reproductive physiology. New chapters on blood groups and transfusion, control of movement and posture and physiology of yoga. Several additional flowcharts, tables and illustrations to facilitate an easier understanding of the text. Key points, summary and review questions at the end of each chapter to enable quick review and recall. Table of contents: section 1: general physiological processes section 2: cardiovascular system section 3: blood section 4: body fluids and renal function section 5: respiration section 6: gastrointestinal system section 7: endocrine system section 8: reproductive physiology section 9: central and peripheral neurophysiology
