Description

Learn, understand, and master pathophysiology! Corresponding to the chapters in Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children, 8th Edition, this study guide offers practical activities to help you review and remember basic pathophysiology. Interactive questions provide you with a working knowledge of disease etiology and disease processes – giving you practice applying what you’ve learned to clinical practice.

Key Features

  • Practice exams provide immediate feedback by helping you understand the rationale behind each answer.
  • More than 1,200 questions cover all areas of pathophysiology.
  • Over 40 case scenarios provide real-world examples of how pathophysiology is used in the clinical setting, helping you apply and integrate knowledge.
  • Concise chapter summaries highlight need-to-know information and help you to quickly review content.
  • Answer key found in the back of the study guide, allows you to check answers and evaluate your progress.
  • Memory Check! Boxes help you understand content – not just memorize key facts.
  • Featured Learning Objectives keeps you focused on essential information from the text.
