The operating room can be an intimidating place for medical students. Preparing to scrub in on a case requires pulling together information from multiple sources on anatomy, pathology, physiology, yet none truly fit the needs of the surgical student. Surgery: An Introductory Guide for Medical Students 2nd Edition, written expressly for students, fills this void by providing an all-in-one reference in a unified, concise, and portable format. The operations covered represent the breadth of general surgery. Each chapter provides focused information on the pathophysiology relevant to the corresponding procedure. The main steps of each case are described, allowing the student to follow along and interact with the surgical team. A color diagram of the operative field from the vantage point of the surgeon accompanies every chapter. Radiologic imaging highlighting key findings are provided. The most common post-operative complications and their clinical presentation are also detailed. Each chapter concludes with a description of a classic patient case, a list of top questions likely to be posed to students, and an essential knowledge checklist. Written by Dr. Sarpel, a general surgery residency program director with multiple teaching awards, Surgery: An Introductory Guide for Medical Students 2nd Edition provides the critical content students need to succeed in their surgical clerkship.

Volume One, The Musculoskeletal System, opens with the building blocks of your body—the cells. Your body is built from many kinds of cells and tissues, and you will learn how they work. Even the bones and muscles that give you strength and speed depend on many types of cells. This book will: Show you the ins and outs of the bones in your skeleton and how they functionGive detail as to how your marvelous muscles move youProvide a detailed glossary in the back for quick reference! Throughout the book you will learn things to do to keep your body healthy. But in a fallen, cursed world things are bound to go wrong. We will look at what happens when disease or injury affects bones and muscles. Volume Two, Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems. From the level of the cell to the organs themselves, we will examine these systems in depth. Here you will learn: The incredible design of the human heart and how it is really “two pumps in one!”How blood moves through an incredible network of arteries and veinsWhat “blood pressure” is and the marvelous systems that help regulate itHow the respiratory system allows us to get the “bad air out “ and the “good air in” Along the way, we will see what happens when things go wrong. We will also suggest things to do to keep the heart and lungs healthy. Although the world insists that our bodies are merely the result of time and chance, as you examine the human body closely, you will see that it cannot be an accident. It can only be the product of a Master Designer.

Still, for In some ways this is a conventional text. It clearly states, for instance, that most people have but one heart, two students, the basic sciences are essential not only for knowing kidneys and 12 pairs of cranial nerves. In some ways it is how the body functions in health, but also for understanding different from other texts. First, it begins with the basic the signs and symptoms of disease, the how and why of physics, chemistry and biology necessary for understanding laboratory tests and clinical procedures, and the logic of anatomy, biochemistry and physiology. Secondly, it tries to correct diagnosis and treatment 'of disease. Knowledge stress the relevance of these sciences to health, disease and precedes care. patient care.

"This is an extremely well written book combining clinical problems and scenarios with appropriate patho-physiology and associated nursing care. Understanding the mechanisms of disease is essential to appropriate clinical interventions and this book makes physiology both relevant and applicable to clinical nursing." Dr. Ray Higginson, Senior Lecturer in Critical Care, University of Glamorgan. "This book successfully takes a biomedical approach to understanding nursing care, which provides a solid foundation of knowledge. The related activities integrated into the text to facilitate learning also help to place the theory into a real world environment." Anne Waugh, Senior Lecturer, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Care, Napier University. "Whilst focusing on the Foundation of Nursing, this engaging and creatively written book illustrates the amazing diversity and complexity of nursing in the 21st Century. Its wide reaching content is presented in a variety of modes that facilitate reflection, critical thinking and foster practical application. As such this book provides nursing students with a comprehensive resource from which to develop the knowledge and evidence base expertise required to become a qualified nurse." Dawn Freshwater, Professor and Head of School, University of Leeds, Editor Journal Psychiatric mental health nursing "Anatomy and Physiology in Action - These are great, really useful. The explanations are simple, and easy to understand. The diagrams in the book that are anatomy and physiology related are again, clear and easy to understand... The learning objectives, give clear information as to the content of the chapter and what the student can expect to gain from reading the chapter.I would happily recommend this book (to) my fellow students... I would also be happy to recommend this book to any one considering starting their nurse training, and would be more than happy to recommend it to my personal tutor and suggest that it is added to the reading list." Joanne Starkes, 2nd year Nursing Student, Bournemouth University, UK "I think that these (scenarios) are useful because they make the information less theoretical by relating it to a person and following through their medical journey, making it easier to read than a block of more generalised text... I find this style of writing easy to follow as the sections are not too big and they are broken up with bullet points, pictures and information boxes... I would recommend this book to other students - particularly people like myself who struggle with big blocks of texts and books that assume you know everything." Claire McHugh, Student Nurse, Southampton University, UK "The large section on the nurse's role is fantastic as it will give anyone who is just starting out on the path to becoming a nurse a great insight into this very important role... I found the exercises and small quizzes throughout the book very useful and believe that they would be a good source for revision for students. I was particularly impressed with the inclusion of chapters on the learning disability, mental health and child branches as these are often left out of general nursing books." Vicky Bain, Nursing Student This comprehensive foundation textbook uniquely combines anatomy and physiology with nursing theory and professional issues to present a unified approach to patient care and the modern nurse's role. Using an array of pedagogy, the text applies theory to practice taking a student-friendly approach designed to help improve clinical effectiveness and successfully integrate your nursing knowledge. Key features include: With over 250 themed boxes, covering the application of theory into practice, essential A&P, professional reflection and evidence-based care, the text asks you to consider how to improve practices and procedures. Includes over 40 patient Scenarios such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and acute myocardial infarction, each identifying best practice for the most common clinical presentations. Multiple-choice quizzes at the end of each chapter assist learning, revision and development of professional portfolios. Includes a chapter on each of the different nursing branches to provide valuable insight into key areas of the nursing role. Chapters on first aid, pharmacology and drug calculations help instil confidence in these vital but notoriously difficult areas. This core text is essential reading for all student nurses on the journey to become fit to practice!
