Updated in content and pedagogy, this 14th Edition of Memmler’s the Human Body in Health and Disease has helped hundreds of thousands of allied health students, including those with little background in science, to master anatomy and physiology. From its pioneering use of phonetic pronunciations to its pedagogically effective skin-to-bone transparencies of the human body, and this edition’s “just-in-time” prerequisite content remediation and increased focus on visualization, the new edition continues to set the standard for the one-semester course.
This classic text provides beautifully illustrated coverage of the essentials of human anatomy, physiology, and the effects of disease. Throughout the book, anatomical art illustrates concepts with accuracy, simplicity, and elegance; medical case studies enhanced with additional clinical content to demonstrate the relevance of the content to a career in the health professions; and proven pedagogy helps students master the anatomic and medical terminology they will encounter in healthcare settings. To even better support student mastery of key content, the book’s online resources are now organized into two sections: text-specific learning tools and interactive study and review.
  • eBook options available. Fast, smart, and convenient, today’s eBooks can transform learning. These interactive, fully searchable tools offer 24/7 access on multiple devices, the ability to highlight and share notes, and much more
