Edition 1
By Roger W. Soames, BSc(Human Biology), PhD(Human Sciences) and Abduelmenem Alashkham, MBBS, MSc, PhD

Publication Date: 06 Sep 2023

Designed to help paramedicine students excel at their academic requirements, Anatomy and Physiology for Paramedical Practice is a unique book in that it brings together anatomy and physiology in a way that is useful for future practice in the field.

Unlike other textbooks, anatomy and physiology are presented by body region, rather than system (chest rather than respiratory system) – the way that paramedics are likely to approach a patient when dealing with acute illness or trauma. It will help you understand how the body is organised, its underlying anatomical structure, in terms of gross anatomy, histology and/or cell biology, and then how anatomy and physiology are applied in clinical practice.

The underlying tenet of this book is that a sound anatomical knowledge underpins successful understanding of physiology and physiological processes. As such, it will be invaluable not only for undergraduate and postgraduate students in paramedicine/emergency medicine, but for many other healthcare professionals to brush up on their knowledge.

Key Features

  • Specifically designed to enable student paramedics to fully appreciate the human body and its functioning
  • Guides the reader through different regions of the body in a logical and coherent way
  • Covers anatomy first, followed by the physiology of the various structures
  • Extensive cross referencing to other relevant regions to enable full understanding of these both individually and in connection to one another
  • Clearly written text supported by relevant and informative illustrations
  • Text boxes covering applied anatomy, clinical anatomy, applied physiology and clinical physiology
  • Self-test multiple choice questions in each chapter
