Clear, step-by-step explanations provide all the information you need to know, so concepts are easy to understand even if you have a limited background in the sciences.

It breaks down complex concepts and processes into digestible chunks, and new features such as Re-Think and Go Figure! help you apply what you've learned to common problems in patient care. Unique! Original, colorful cartoons use humor to reinforce content, making it more accessible and user-friendly. Original, full-color illustrations complement the text and simplify both fundamental and complex concepts. Key terms are listed in chapter openers and defined in the glossary. A summary outline at the end of each chapter provides a useful study tool. Review Your Knowledge questions at the end of each chapter include multiple-choice and matching Unique!

Disorders of the _____ System tables summarize specific disorders related to individual body systems for easy reference. Sum It Up! reinforces and summarizes key topics. As You Age boxes describe how aging affects human anatomy and physiology. An updated Evolve companion website provides access to posttests, animations, an audio glossary, and additional Do You Know vignettes.Re-Think sections ask you to review concepts and apply what you’ve learned. Unique! Ramp It Up! boxes connect material in the text to the clinical setting and your future career. Unique! Build-a-Word boxes help you learn and build upon new medical terminology. Unique!
