This superb team of authors and editors provides a highly readable account of 'how the body works.' The book is structured around body systems and includes relevant diseases to illustrate the consequences of what happens when a part of a particular system fails. This book is aimed at students in biological sciences, medicine, dentistry, nutrition, pharmacy, physiotherapy and physical education. The book focuses on the core information required by students but further information is provided in small print for the interested or the more advanced student.

The present book is compilation of my lecture notes on Human Physiology. This book is an outcome of an idea I got from my students, when I saw them taking print out of my lecture presentations and get them spirally bounded as book to study during whole semesters, especially examination days. The present compilation of important facts & concepts of human physiological system well supported with self-drawn suitable figures are very helpful in revising entire syllabus particularly during examination days when students are running short of time and plenty is there to study. The present book covers almost all human physiological systems starting from Body Fluids to Muscle Physiology, Cardiovascular System, Endocrine System, Nervous System, Respiratory System, Excretory System, Digestive System and Reproductive System. Every chapter is very well supported with proper illustrations, tables and ray diagrams. Altogether about 50 illustrations are included in the book to make the mechanisms/concept easiest to understand by the students. This book shall be helpful to the students of Medical (MBBS/MD/MS), Paramedical, Basic Sciences viz. Zoology & Applied Sciences viz. Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Human Physiology, Life Sciences, Biosciences, Endocrinology, Pharmacy, Home Science, etc. I thank to readers in advance for their all love given to the book. I wish you all success in future endeavors!
This book is a compilation of Human Physiology lecture notes meant specifically for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students as well as biomedical, nursing and other medical-related courses. The contributors of this book are the Universiti Sains Malaysia Physiology lecturers who have strived to present the information as accurately and effectively as possible. The contents are arranged according to body systems which comprise Cell and Tissue, Respiratory System, Cardiovascular System, Gastrointestinal System, Renal System, Nervous System, Endocrine System, Reproductive System and Musculoskeletal System. This book is designed with the following features to facilitate quick revision of relevant Physiology topics: • Compact, concise and readable text • Simplified tables • Colourful figures • Examples of short essay question It is hoped that this book will benefit the readers in one way or another. Happy reading!

Die Amyotrophe Lateralsklerose (ALS) ist die häufigste Motoneuron-Erkrankung bei Erwachsenen (ca. 6000 Patienten in Deutschland). Die ALS führt zu fortschreitender Muskellähmung verbunden mit Muskelsteifheit und Bewegungsunfähigkeit bei meist klarem Verstand. Der Tod tritt in der Regel 3-5 Jahre nach Krankheitsbeginn ein. Die im Verlauf auftretenden Beschwerden und die psychosoziale Begleitung der Patienten und ihrer Familien sind eine Herausforderung für das Betreuungsteam. Dieses praxisorientierte Werk bietet konkrete Hinweise für eine ganzheitliche Palliativbetreuung bei ALS. In jedem Abschnitt werden konkrete Problemlösungsstrategien beschrieben, angepasst an den deutschen Versorgungskontext.

A typical human anatomy and physiology textbook contains over one thousand pages and weighs over six pounds. It is not conducive to quick study or a last-minute review when a student is trying to prepare for exams or class lectures. The author has carefully reviewed the major human anatomy and physiology textbooks and incorporated into this guide the main concepts needed by students to meet the challenges of the course and make the grades they need. These points are provided in bulleted lists for quick mastery of the subject matter. The information is provided on each of the following topics and many more: Anatomy terms and physiology concepts Chemistry, including organic and inorganic Cellular level of organization Cardiovascular system Circulatory system Digestive system Immune system Nervous system Nutrition, metabolism, and body temperature regulation Fluid, Electrolytes, and Acid-base balance Human Anatomy and Physiology will help medical, nursing, and students of other health-related disciplines prepare for their classes and exams by providing review questions at the end of every chapter, along with the answers that will enable them to test their knowledge and skill level.
