Pathophysiology: A Clinical Approach, 3rd Edition

Pathophysiology: A Clinical Approach, 3rd Edition

Emphasizing application of knowledge, active learning strategies, critical thinking, and evidence-based practice, this updated 3rd Edition of Applied Pathophysiology: A Conceptual Approach to the Mechanisms of Disease explores pathophysiology through the lens of body function concepts and what happens when function is altered through injury or disease.
 
This novel approach helps students understand that diseases are rarely confined to one body system and challenges them to apply what they’ve learned to a range of diseases, rather than trying to memorize facts about specific conditions. In the process, they learn to think about pathophysiology in the same way practioners do in a clinical setting—by working from symptoms to the cause, rather than the other way around.
 
The 3rd Edition features much that is new including a new chapter on mental illnesses, new case studies in every chapter, and a wide range of new clinically-focused features.

  • Updated Clinical models provide real-world examples of how pathophysiological concepts manifest themselves in the human body to help prepare students for practice.
  • New Just-in-time review sections refer students to online student resources and remediation to refresh their understanding of prerequisite A&P and Microbiology material.
  • New chapter-ending Case Studies (2-4 in every chapter) and related questions help students build critical thinking skills as they apply chapter material to real-world clinical scenarios.
  • New! Pathology Up Close features provide more detailed coverage of the cellular and tissue changes that accompany disease.
  • New! Clinical Practice features show students how they will apply what they are learning in real-world practice.
  • A new Chapter 11 on altered mood, attention, and behavior disorders prepares students for the mental illnesses they will encounter in practice.
  • Concept maps visually illustrate important interrelationships of key concepts, making it easy for students to visualize how things fit together.
  • End-of-chapter learning tools include summaries, practice exam questions, and links to general web resources and chapter references.
  • From the Lab boxes help students understand common laboratory procedures and results.
  • Stop and Consider prompts challenge students to think beyond the information presented in the textbook.
  • Discussion and Application sections in every chapter help students gauge their understanding of what they’ve studied.
  • New! Links to online student resources are called out as appropriate to provide additional practice and review.
  • Full-color figures and illustrations throughout the book clarify important concepts.
  • An integrative case study at the end of the book helps students apply the complex pathophysiologic concepts they’ve learned to a common condition—diabetes mellitus.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
