This is the Eighth Edition of the comprehensive and well-respected text and reference of pathophysiology. As a nurse-physiologist, Carol Porth uniquely emphasizes “concepts” of altered health states, as opposed to factual descriptions of diseases and disorders. This conceptual model integrates the developmental and preventative aspects of health. By taking this physiologic approach, the author ensures a comprehension of the whole of body function. By integrating all of the aspects of the human body into a total functional whole, the student can grasp both the physical and psychological aspects of altered health.

Features include:
-NEW Understanding... displays showcase pathophysiological processes though detailed visual representation.
-NEW Revamped art programme! Half of the art is completely new and the other half is redrawn or modified. All new photos.
-NEW Expanded content on evidence-based practice
-NEW Chapter 6, Genetics has been rewritten to include new content on human genome project, protein synthesis, transcription factors, RNA silencing.
-NEW Chapter 15 updated to reflect new materials on leukaemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma
-NEW Chapter 17 heavily revised to reflect new science developments
-Integrated pediatric coverage allows for a more streamlined, less redundant text
-Intra-text summaries with a colour screen behind them are found integrated throughout the text, forcing the student to pause and review salient points. Well-known for its readability, Carol Porth's writing style is such that she presents information, then continually reinforces difficult concepts.
-Key Concepts Boxes are designed to help the reader retain and utilize text information by providing a mechanism to incorporate text information into a larger conceptual unit as opposed to memorizing a string of related and unrelated facts.
-A glossary provides a reference of commonly used terms.
