Understanding Pathophysiology, 4th Edition offers complete coverage in clear and concise detail with extensive full-color illustrations to make learning pathophysiology easy. Consistent presentation of each disease includes pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and evaluation and treatment to make remembering and learning information easier. Extensive collection of over 950 full-color photographs and illustrations vividly illustrate normal anatomy and physiology, cellular mechanisms, disease processes, and clinical manifestations of disease. UNIQUE! Health Alert boxes discuss a broad range of topics from new research, diagnostic studies, preventative care, and more. UNIQUE! Quick Check questions at the end of major sections promote critical thinking to help you apply your knowledge to real-life situations. UNIQUE! Risk Factor boxes illustrate the risk factors associated with specific diseases. Pediatric content presented in nine separate chapters provides thorough coverage of how various disease processes specifically affect children. Special headings highlight aging content within adult chapters to help you address the specialized needs of older patients.
