The second edition of this introductory text uses clinical examples to bridge the gap between basic neuroscience and the practice of neurologic rehabilitation. Each chapter illustrates the relationship between the nervous system and behavior. Current, portable, and clearly written, the text covers discrete systems for acquiring information, the neural mechanisms that control specific kinds of human function, and how the nervous system responds to insult and injury. New in this edition: Neurotransmitters, support structures and blood supply, sensorimotor interaction, and aging of the nervous system.

This pathophysiology text offers a unique conceptual approach that facilitates learning by viewing pathophysiology as health care professionals do. Students will learn about general mechanisms of disease or alterations in human function—such as immune alterations or altered nutrition—and apply these processes to specific conditions. Chapters focus on fifteen core concepts of altered human function, selected by analyzing and clustering health conditions with high prevalence, incidence, and severity. Unlike a traditional systems-based approach, this novel approach shows how most diseases involve multiple body systems. A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations and an interactive game. Faculty resources include lesson plans, PowerPoint slides, additional case studies, and student assignment worksheets.

Pathophysiology Concepts and Applications for Health Care Professionals

The traditional pathophysiology book is written for the medical student. Nursing and allied health students (usually at the sophomore level) have simply had to make-do with cumbersome (1500 to 1600 page) books, that assume considerably more science background than the typical allied health student has acquired. The Nowak book is not only briefer (at 700 pages) but is organized in a manner that brings the principles of pathophysiology to the forefront. The authors focus on the relatively few patterns of disease, rather than asking students to memorize extensive catalogs of specific diseases. This conceptual approach is more suited to the allied health student than the disease centered approach featured in the major competitors.

Classroom tested and reviewed, the second Canadian edition draws upon the strengths of a successful first Canadian edition and eight US editions that have together helped over 600,000 faculty and students allay math anxiety and more confidently perform accurate calculations. This text is directed at the student or professional who feels uncomfortable with mathematics and wants to improve their ability to perform accurate drug dosage calculations. As a pioneer Canadian text in the topic of medication calculations, the authors have transcended provincial practices to provide a nation-wide perspective on dosage calculations. The International System (SI) of units is used almost exclusively and medication dosages and drug labels have been vetted with the current Canadian drug data base, so that you, as a beginning professional, will be able to recognize and interpret drug labels and dosages. The importance of avoiding medication errors is also highlighted by the incorporation of applied critical thinking skills, to prepare you for real-life nursing practice situations. This winning combination of Canadian labels, life-size photos and an easy-to-follow three-Step approach to Dosage Calculations, makes this text is a must-have for all Canadian nursing students.
