PDQ Physiology

Posted By: hotspot
PDQ Physiology offers a concise, up-to-date summary of human physiology. It is an ideal resource for the more advanced physiology specialist and health professional requiring a quick view or review. The book's perspective is one of integration while incorporating the current understanding in molecular and cellular physiology and offers up-to-date explanations of physiological phenomena.

The reader will greatly benefit from the coverage of topics not found in most comprehensive physiology books. PDQ Physiology is more focused on significant points; more current in cardiac, renal, and muscle functions; and is more descriptive in sexuality, reproduction and birth.
