Description

Back to Basics In Physiology: Electrolytes and Non-electrolyte Solutes in the Body exploits the gap that exists in current physiology books. Instead of tackling one particular organ system at a time, the authors tackle specific problems and then evaluate their repercussions on systemic physiology.

With the exploding amount of basic science information that is available today to physiology students (undergraduate, nursing, physician associate or medical), there is more and more of a disconnect between the basic sciences and the clinical sciences. This book provides a bridge that allows students to understand basic science and its direct translation to the clinical setting, with the final aim of comprehending the basic science that is behind the clinical observations.

The book allows students to gain sufficient background knowledge of physiology and its direct application to clinical skills because they are being written as lectures, in day-to-day language that is easy to comprehend. This original, six chapter book briefly reviews and integrates the basic concepts behind the function of electrolytes in the body.

About the Author

Juan Pablo Arroyo

After receiving his medical degree with honors from the University of La Salle in Mexico City, Dr. Arroyo pursued a PhD in Biomedical Science at the National Autonomous University in Mexico City (UNAM), focusing on renal ion transport physiology. During this time he was appointed Adjunct Professor of Physiology at the University of La Salle and the Panamerican University School of Medicine. He then completed a two year Post-Doctoral fellowship in Renal Genetics and Hypertension at the Genetics Department of the Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Arroyo is now a Tinsley R. Harrison Society Scholar at Vanderbilt University, where he is undergoing his clinical training in Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Dr. Arroyo has been a guest speaker at several international renal physiology conferences, and is interested in clinical medicine, basic science research and active teaching in the classroom.
