A Glossary of Medical Physiology
A Companion Text for Students in the Medical and Health Sciences and Health Care Professionals
A Keyword Approach to Medical Physiology
A Glossary of Medical Physiology is a new and unique addition to the broad field of medical physiology. Unlike other well recognized textbooks in medical physiology, an alphabetical keyword approach that addresses the core concepts in medical physiology has been adopted. Key concepts that are required knowledge for students and practitioners in the medical and health sciences have been carefully selected. The list of over 1600 entries covers core areas of medical physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, and not least, medical history. Additionally, the clinical correlations of many of the keywords have been emphasized thus putting them in a clear and concise clinical context. Also, many of the entries have been extensively cross-referenced in an effort to enhance the book’s educational value. This Glossary would be an invaluable reading guide and a quick review source for students in the basic sciences and those preparing for the basic science component of their professional examinations. For health care practitioners, especially those preparing for postgraduate examinations, the Glossary provides a quick and refreshing review of the essentials of medical physiology and related subjects. The book has been designed to be of tremendous benefit to students and practitioners in the medical, dental, pharmaceutical, nursing and other allied health sciences.
