Reinforce your understanding of the concepts in Patton’s The Human Body in Health & Disease! Corresponding to the chapters in the text, this study guide reviews essential medical terminology, concepts, and processes related to anatomy and physiology, and explains how body systems function in health and disease. Each chapter begins with a quick synopsis of the key points in the textbook chapter. A variety of exercises make it easier to review and apply key concepts, and labeling of anatomy drawings helps in learning anatomical terms and structures.
