Case-based Medical Physiology
November 2005, Wiley-Blackwell
Each case is thoroughly discussed through the use of patient histories, physical examination, investigations and management of common conditions where disordered physiology is involved. Over 60 illustrations reinforce an understanding of basic physiological mechanisms.
A problem-based learning approach is used which includes Question and Answer sections and a final Case Review.
Case Based Medical Physiology is designed as a resource for medical students and junior doctors to be used as a revision aid prior to examinations and OSCEs.
