Features new chapters on sensory physiology, the reproductive system, and the immune system Provides easy access to information through bulleted lists, tables, figures, and flow chartsContains frequent references to therapeutics and the practice of pharmacyEstablishes the connection between physiology and pharmacyHighlights applications of physiological concepts, medical terminology, and pharmacotherapeutics
Designed as a resource for pharmacy and health science students, Essentials of Human Physiology for Pharmacy, Second Edition emphasizes the connection and relevance of physiology to pharmacy practice. Every chapter is updated and expanded and new chapters are included on sensory physiology, the immune system, and the reproductive system. Revised pharmacy applications demonstrate basic principles in physiology and their use in pharmacy practice. Each chapter also offers medical terminology, including definitions, associated terms, and pronunciations, as well as relevant drugs used to treat the disorders discussed, explaining their classifications and therapeutic actions.
