Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY is a carefully condensed version of Lauralee Sherwood's HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. It provides clear, current, concise, clinically oriented coverage of physiology. Many analogies and frequent references to everyday experiences help students relate to the physiology concepts presented. Offering helpful art and pedagogical features, Sherwood promotes understanding of the basic principles and concepts of physiology rather than memorization of details and provides a foundation for future careers in the health professions.

Fundamentals of Human Physiology: A Comparative Examination is written from a comparative perspective using examples from animal physiology to illustrate key principles and shed light on what is known about physiological mechanisms in humans. Over the course of ten chapters the book examines and describes these various mechanisms in detail. Fundamentals of Human Physiology begins with an introduction to histology and the organization of the body. It then goes on to focused explorations of cell, sensory, and muscle physiology, as well as neurophysiology. The text also covers the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and digestive systems. The final chapter is devoted to endocrinology. Students learn about cell structure and function, cell signaling, and transduction pathways. They explore the nervous system including somatic and visceral sensation. They become familiar with skeletal muscle, the heart and vascular systems, the lungs, and gas transport mechanisms. Each chapter concludes with a summary that support identification and retention of important concepts. Fundamentals of Human Physiology is well suited to undergraduate courses in human physiology or anatomy. M. Beth Zimmer, who earned her Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Ferris State University where her course offerings include human anatomy and physiology, neurobiology, and current topics in biology. In addition to teaching, Dr. Zimmer is the biology research seminar coordinator and serves on multiple committees including the Academic Senate. Her professional writing has appeared in Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, the Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine, and Experimental Neurology.

We all have a natural curiosity about how the human body works. The goal of Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems is to foster this curiosity and enthusiasm while effectively teaching physiology as an enjoyable and comprehensible subject. Organized around a central theme of homeostasis, the text offers uncluttered and streamlined content that integrates topics and ideas throughout. Written for Canadian students in life science, zoology, kinesiology, nursing, and physical therapy, this edition continues to highlight important Canadian research, statistics, and researchers as well as current examples of the body's function in disease, exercise, and health. The new "Clinical Connection" feature provides even more real world applications and connections to engage students and enhance learning.

Fundamentals of Human Physiology was conceived to meet the needs of students and professors struggling with the complexity and depth of the larger, more detailed human physiology textbooks currently available. In addition to being more concise and focusing on the basics of human physiology, this text is smaller in physical size, allowing for a cheaper, easier choice for instructors.

Packed with vivid illustrations, best-selling FUNDAMENTALS OF ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, 4E is written specifically for learners in a one-semester introductory A&P course in the allied health field who have little or no previous knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Known for its clear approach to teaching, the text is widely praised for its ability to break A&P down into very simple, easy to understand language. Content is organized according to body systems and focuses on the body working together to promote homeostasis. Improving both the quality and quantity of text illustrations, the Fourth Edition's new art program brings text concepts to life with new figures throughout.

Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, now in its Third Edition, continues to provide candidates with a "tailor-made" alternative to more general physiology textbooks and delivers information designed and written specifically with the trainee anaesthetist in mind. The book covers the physiology of all major organ systems, with specific emphasis on the nervous, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. In addition, special sections on the physiology of pain, the physiology of ageing, and the physiological effects of specific environments—all highly relevant to anaesthetic practice—have been incorporated. The third edition builds upon several new features introduced in the last edition: learning objectives, areas for reflection, and a handy summary of physiological equations and tables. Copious diagrams throughout support the text and aid in the understanding of difficult concepts. The authors integrate their teaching experience in physiology into the content to improve the understanding of the fundamentals of human physiology in relation to the work of the anaesthetist. This book will remain an invaluable reference throughout anaesthetic training and beyond, as well as a useful revision aid.
