The function of the human body involves intricate and complex processes at the cellular, organ, and systems level. The fourth edition of Medical Physiology: Principles for Clinical Medicine explains what is currently known about these integrated processes. Although the emphasis of the fourth edition is on normal physiology, discussion of pathophysiology is also undertaken to show how altered functions are involved in disease processes. Th is not only reinforces fundamental physiologic principles, but also demonstrates how basic concepts in physiology serve as important principles in clinical medicine.
Our mission for the fourth edition of Medical Physiology: Principles for Clinical Medicine is to provide a clear, accurate, and up-to-date introduction to medical physiology for medical students and other students in the health sciences as well as to waste no space in so doing—each element of this textbook presents a learning opportunity; therefore we have attempted to maximize those opportunities to the fullest.
