The Second Edition of Pathophysiology offers a unique clinical approach that facilitates learning by viewing pathophysiology as health care professionals do. Whereas a traditional systems-based approach impractically isolates diseases to a single body system, this textbook's approach recognizes how disease affects multiple systems. Additionally, rather than covering only a limited number of diseases, aiming for rote memorization of the key factors in those diseases, the clinical approach details the mechanisms of disease. By mastering the core concepts of altered human function, students can apply a deeper understanding to a host of diseases, rather than trying to memorize facts about specific conditions. Because students learn through application, they learn to think about pathophysiology the way they will need to in a clinical setting, by working from symptoms to the cause, rather than the other way around. Each chapter discusses clinical models, enhancing the real-world application of the material.

I thought that this book was fairly effective in covering the majority of the material that it did. It would help, a fair amount, to know normal physiology before taking this class. It's not required, however. They will break down normal physiology down far enough for the clinical models used at the end of the chapters. Knowledge is consolidated fairly well. Information concerning treatments can sometimes be a little lacking, but should probably be expected. That would probably fall under more advanced classes or pharmacology.

I am using this book as a supplemental resource for the Family Nurse Practitioner Program I am in. It has really helped to improve my tests scores. It gives a different approach to the subject matter than what is presented in the traditional textbooks. I would definitely recommend it!

Very understandable. Nice diagrams, pictures, and tables to aid learning. The questions at the end of the chapter and the objective at the beginning of the chapter really help guide you through the course.

A very good book. A lot of pictures, a lot of terminology! Very complicated reading that is very intense. If not good at memorizing not a good idea to take this course until your background dictates you're ready.
