Pocock / Richards Human Physiology

Key Features:A new edition of our flagship undergraduate textbook
- Over 50 new figures and many from the previous edition have been redrawn
The new edition of Human Physiology - an Oxford Core Text continues to meet the needs of preclinical medical students and is also of value to those following undergraduate courses in physiology and other health-related disciplines. It adopts a student-friendly style with an emphasis on clarity, explanation and understanding complemented by full-colour illustrations. The book has a hierarchical organisation, beginning with aspects of cell and tissue function before proceeding to a consideration of the communication systems of the body including the endocrine and nervous systems. The heart of the text concerns the physiology of the main body systems.
The new edition has been significantly revised to include an expanded problem section at the end of each chapter with more quantitative examples and some clinical problems where appropriate. Each chapter has been updated and new material includes a section on the physiology of itch; more detailed treatment of colour vision, deafness and vestibular blindness; increased emphasis on neurology disorders; discussion of the physiology of respiratory failure and pulmonary embolism; a discussion of malabsorption disorders; extensive revision to cover the wider aspects of maternal physiology not just lactation, and extended treatment of fever. The Clinical Physiology chapter is now broken into several short chapters and includes a discussion of cardiovascular pathophysiology and organ failure.
