Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing and Health Professionals. Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing and Health ProfessionalsThis is the first Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) book designed specifically for Nursing and Health Professionals. The text adopts an applied and visual approach to help you to engage with this exciting and sometimes complex subject. The book provides a wealth of amazing body facts to help you to remember key points whilst also giving you an appreciation of just how amazing the human design really is. Terminology and pronunciation guides help you to feel confident when using medical terms in practice, and case studies encourage you to link theory with 'real world' clinical applications. The text is supported by an interesting companion website where you can view further animations and complete various exercises; together the text and website will take you on an exciting and interactive journey through the structure and functions of the human body! "Aimed specifically at students and those returning to nursing, this book should dispel any fears. It informs the reader of the key facts, but the authors are mindful not to overwhelm their readers nor to over-burden with detail...It is an ideal book to have close by for anyone studying nursing...Recommended."Karen Smyth, Nursing Student, University of Ulster, THES, Feb 2010 "At last a good text adapted for the UK market. Having listened to the pronunciation guide I am happy now to recommend this text. Good points: case studies linked to UK practice, I like the combination approach, the study skills advice, the targeting of learning theory to learning A&P, including adrenaline with epinephrine in brackets, interspersing calculations as exercises, good test activities, good reading for intro to A&P (ch. 2), good references (eg ch3), good reference to child/infant for burn extimation, good clinical application (eg assessing peripheral perfusion activity -pinching nail), good to see photographs."Penny Goacher, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of East Anglia "This fabulous book presents anatomy and physiology in a visually stimulating way, taking readers on a journey through what many view as a complex maze of systems. It embraces a variety of approaches to learning, with chapters on the body systems, sections on learning the language of anatomy, reading the body map, biochemistry, and study skills.The information is presented in a way that makes this book invaluable" Valerie McGurk, practice development facilitator, paediatrics, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust (reviewed in Nursing Standard magazine, July 7-13 2010 edition)
