Review of Medical Physiology – 20th Edition (2001)

In unicellular organisms, all vital processes occur in a single cell. As the evolution of multicellular organisms has progressed, various cell groups have taken over particular functions. In humans and other vertebrate animals, the specialized cell groups include a gastrointestinal system to digest and absorb food; a respiratory system to take up O2 and eliminate CO2; a urinary system to remove wastes; a cardiovascular system to distribute food, O2, and the products of metabolism; a reproductive system to perpetuate the species; and nervous and endocrine systems to coordinate and integrate the functions of the other systems. This book is concerned with the way these systems function and the way each contributes to the functions of the body as a whole.

lipincott,s ilustrated q&a review of rubins pathology

Lippincott’s Illustrated Q&A Review of Rubin’s Pathology presents the key concepts of modern pathology in the form of clinical vignette-style questions. Using the format of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), the questions address the major topics in general and systemic pathology presented in Rubin’s Pathology: Clinicopathologic Foundations of Medicine.

The questions are prepared at a level appropriate for second-year medical students. They provide a roadmap for
students completing their courses in pathology and preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination
(USMLE). Students in the allied health sciences (e.g., nursing and physical therapy) will also fi nd considerable
didactic value in clinical vignette-style questions.

Clinical vignette-style questions strengthen problem-solving skills. Students must integrate clinical and laboratory
data, thereby simulating the practice of pathology and medicine in general. Case-based questions probe a level of
competency that is expected for success on national licensing examinations.
