The dynamic writing duo of Gerard J. Tortora and Bryan H. Derrickson team up to present students with an introductory resource available for rent or purchase entitled Principles of Anatomy and Physiology (Tortora,Principles of Anatomy and Physiology) , ISBN 9780470084717. This boasts a student-centered presentation coupled with a relational discussion of normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. A visually appealing graphic design program is integrated with thoroughly revised material and instructional features as well as clinical connections to make the most of this learning experience for students. Well-designed tables and figures present useful information while an added bonus of this text is that of the interactive online components offered to supplement the concepts presented through such tools as podcasts and activities focused around mastering vocabulary. Gerard J. Tortora and Bryan H. Derrickson strategically organize the concepts of Principles of Anatomy and Physiology (Tortora,Principles of Anatomy and Physiology) across five sections and 29 chapters. Unit I begins this text with a look at the 'Organization of the Human Body' with chapters discussing the chemical, cellular, and tissue levels of organization as well as the integumentary system. Unit 2 delves into 'Principles of Support and Movement' including aspects of the skeletal system such as bone tissue, the axial skeleton, and the appendicular skeleton, as well as joints, muscle tissues, and the muscular system. Unit III presents information on 'Control Systems of the Human Body.' These chapters discuss nervous tissue, the spinal cord and spinal nerves, the brain and cranial nerves, the autonomic nervous system, sensory, motor, and integrative systems, the special senses, and the endocrine system. The 'Maintenance of the Human Body' is the focus of unit IV with pages devoted to the cardiovascular system including the blood, heart, blood vessels, and hemodynamics, the lymphatic system, nonspecific resistance to disease, and immunity, the respiratory and digestive systems, metabolism, the urinary system, and fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base homeostasis. Unit V concludes this book with a look at 'Continuity' through chapters discussing the reproductive systems, development and inheritance.
