This text is designed for a one-term course covering
the basics of human anatomy and physiology with an emphasis on the
mechanisms of disease. Courses are for non-science majors and may
be in allied health or pre-professional departments or certificate
programs at 2-year colleges or hospitals.
This text includes basic concepts of A&P, integrated disease-related
information, clinical applications, and terminologyall without
excessive detail. It is written by an author team known for its clarity
of presentation and outstanding illustration program.
Introduces a separate chapter (Chapter 6) on Mechanisms
of Disease, covering the classification and diagnosis of diseases,
the fundamentals of infectious diseases, and the transmission and
control of pathogensThis chapter appears early in the text
and serves as a foundation for the study of disease.
Integrates a wealth of disease-related information and
applications throughout each chapter.
- Students can apply this foundation of disease as they
study the individual human body systems.
Presents only the most basic coverage of each body
systemEach chapter that covers a major body system begins
with a System Brief which provides an overview of that system's
functions. The rest of the chapter covers the basic concepts of the
- As students study each body system in a state of health,
they also learn what happens if it's in a state of disease.
Showcases a superior illustration programFeaturing
award-winning illustrations by Bill Ober. The illustrations are large,
clear and easy to study from.
- Students can concentrate on the big picture without
getting overwhelmed by the details.
Macro-to-micro illustrations provide excellent visual support
by allowing students to see anatomy in exploded or three-dimensional
viewsfrom gross to microscopic.
Orientation icons show reference locations for individual
Provides numerous pedagogical aids.
- Students are better able to understand the complexities
of the human body with large, clear illustrations that relate isolated
anatomical elements to the whole body.
Concept Check Questions appear after key concepts, and
help students check their understanding of material just covered.
Figure Reference Locators are red dots which appear next
to all figure call-outs and function as visual place holders. They
allow students to easily study illustrations without losing their
place in the narrative.
Concept Links are convenient page reference icons which
link students to relevant concepts discussed earlier in the text.
Helps students better understand A&P as a whole.
Concept Maps and Flow Charts show students key relationships
between structure and function.
Fundamentals of A&P Interactive Student CD-ROM is available
free with the textCorrelated to Martini's Fundamentals
of Anatomy & Physiology 4th edition but applicable to many topics
in Essentials of A&P, this powerful learning tool uses interactive
cases and animated tutorials to help A&P come alive.
- These aids help students study more efficiently and relate
isolated concepts to other concepts within the text.
- Students have access to a powerful and exciting study
tool, that helps them visualize key processes.
