Develop both your clinical problem-solving and critical thinking skills with this comprehensive workbook. Inside you'll discover a clear-cut approach to integrating basic pathophysiology, risk factors, physical examination findings, and clinical laboratory data for 100 major health problems. This fundamental resource provides support for medical, pharmacy, nursing, and allied health studies. Using a case study approach, you'll learn appropriate disease management options to improve patient quality of life.

Features That Make Learning Easy:

  • An organ systems approach categorizes diseases and other health conditions and provides a logical, efficient learning experience.
  • Patient Cases simulate the health problems of real-life patients, so you can effectively interpret medical records and treatment options.
  • A Disease Summary for each case study, found on the accompanying CD-ROM and companion Website, provides an in-depth understanding of each medical condition. Each Disease Summary includes a definition, prevalence, significance, causes and risk factors, pathophysiology, diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and serious complications and prognosis.
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving questions in the Patient Cases and the Disease Summaries provoke thought and test your understanding of the main concepts.
  • Over 150 color photographs and illustrations, available on the CD-ROM and the companion Website, help bring the content to life.

Now Available for Instructors: Online answers to critical thinking and problem-solving questions in the Disease Summary and Patient Case sections, and an image bank that includes the figures and tables for each.

This book is in perfect condition. There also were some extra loose leaf paper in it that I could use.

This is a nice compliment to other classroom instruction materials. I am teaching an advanced pathophysiology course in a nurse practitioner program. This book is very helpful for students to put together the concepts of patho with the clinical setting. Will use these for in-class group assignments. Case-studies are thorough and offer a variety of different disease processes to choose from. It certainly does not offer a case study for every possible disease or clinical scenario, but does cover most major areas and enough variety in my opinion. Should be helpful in reinforcing the clinical significance of some difficult to understand concepts. I would recommend this text to course instructors.

I bought the book as requested by the instructor. The book itself is good. But there are no answers for the questions in the book because it is a book for instructors' use. For me, my instructor only used a few cases in the book (less than 10) and I won't get the answers for the remaining cases. It is true that the CD is very helpful. But as a student, I want to use the whole book and study all the cases since I paid for the entire book.

I just started teaching a Pathophysiology course & was looking for case studies for the students. These case studies are current, concise, & reasonable for the students; each one provides enough information to get them started without 'leading' the student. I watch the students as their critical thinking skills start to spark...You know, the 'Ahhh, now I get it!" expression that comes over their faces. Well worth the investment. Thanks~~~

This case studies book is an excellent supplement to basic pathophysiology textbooks for learning the subject of pathophysiology. The book is not intended to stand alone unless the student has some background in pathophysiology, but used while taking a pathophysiology course, it has significant merit. It helped me to understand, from a basic science perspective, why sick patients develop the symptoms that they do when they have particular diseases. I found the case studies on heart failure, breast cancer, lung cancer and diabetes especially helpful as I have family members with this disease. The book really helped me to connect the dots between basic science and the clinical manifestations of disease. I found the CD very helpful in helping me to understand the pathophysiology of disease. I highly recommend this case studies book for anyone who is currently enrolled in a pathophysiology or pathology course or just wants to review pathophysiology.
