Marks Basic Medical Biochemistry

Author: Alisa Peet
Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
ISBN: 9781608315727
Release Date: 2012-02-01
Genre: Medical

This core textbook helps medical students bridge the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care. The strength of Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is that it starts with the patient—the metabolic and nutritional needs of the human body (easy for students to understand)—as opposed to explanations of complex chemical theory. Mark's Basic empahsizes clinical correlations throughout the text and links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using patient vignettes as the context. These specific and memorable mock patient cases are followed throughout the chapter to pose questions, illustrate core concepts, and help students remember and apply biochemical priniciples within the context of clinical practice.

Essentials of Human Physiology for Pharmacy

Author: Laurie Kelly McCorry
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 0203495330
Release Date: 2004-03-29
Genre: Medical

Textbooks on human physiology abound. However, they are either basic in nature or are rigorous treatments written for medical and graduate students and exceed the level of detail that student pharmacists need. Putting important topics right at your fingertips, Essentials of Human Physiology for Pharmacy describes physiology with just the right amount of detail. The book begins with an overview of cell membrane physiology emphasizing nerve cell function. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the two major regulatory systems in the body, the nervous system and the endocrine system. The author provides in-depth discussions of the muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and renal systems. She focuses on how tissue and organ function is regulated in order to maintain homeostasis. Underlining the connection between the two disciplines, subsections separate from the actual text relate concepts in physiology to the practice of pharmacy. The clear, concise presentation of important principles and mechanisms, make the book an invaluable resource that you will refer to time and time again.
