Understanding Pathophysiology, 2nd Edition has been extensively revised to include the most current science, clinical case material and pharmacology of pathophysiology, in an easy-to-understand and accessible format.

Beginning with essential concepts, the text examines the normal structure and function of each body system, followed by the alterations to that system caused by disease. Conditions particularly relevant to children and to the ageing are described in separate sections in each chapter to demonstrate disease processes across the life span.
