The ACC Atlas of Pathophysiology, Third Edition, is a full-color, comprehensive atlas that shows--in 450 brilliant Anatomical Chart Company illustrations--how more than 200 disorders can disrupt the human body's equilibrium. Brief textual information and charts cover causes, pathophysiology, signs, symptoms, diagnostic test results, and treatment options. The atlas also includes highly illustrated introductory chapters on basic concepts in pathophysiology: cellular homeostasis and the disease process, cancer, infection, genetic disorders, fluid and electrolyte disorders, and more. It is designed to help health care professionals understand the rationales for prevention and therapy and to act as a teaching tool for explaining to patients how diseases develop and progress.
