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.
