physiology cases and problems

This book was written for first- and second-year medical students who are studying physiology and pathophysiology. In the framework of cases, the book covers clinically relevant topics in physiology by asking students to answer open-ended questions and solve problems.

This book is intended to complement lectures, course syllabi, and traditional textbooks of physiology. The chapters are arranged according to organ system, including cellular and autonomic, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal and acid–base, gastrointestinal, and endocrine and reproductive physiology.

Each chapter presents a series of cases followed by questions and problems that emphasize the most important physiologic principles. The questions require students to perform complex, multistep reasoning and to think integratively across the organ systems. The problems emphasize clinically relevant calculations.

BRS physiology fifth edition

The subject matter of physiology is the foundation of the practice of medicine, and a firm grasp of its principles is essential for the physician. This book is intended to aid the student preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1.

It is a concise review of key physiologic principles and is intended to help the student recall material taught during the first and second years of medical school. It is not intended to substitute for comprehensive textbooks or for course syllabi, although the student may find it a useful adjunct to physiology and pathophysiology courses.

The material is organized by organ system into seven chapters. The first chapter reviews general principles of cellular physiology. The remaining six chapters review the major organ systems—neurophysiology, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal and acid–base, gastrointestinal, and endocrine physiology.
