Book Description

“Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology,” now in its 3rd edition, authored by Christina A. Gan, Kenneth S. Saladin, and Robin McFarland, offers a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the structure and function of the human body. Here's what you can expect from this edition:

  1. Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology: The textbook begins by introducing the basic concepts and terminology of anatomy and physiology, providing students with a foundational understanding of the structure and function of the human body.
  2. Cellular Structure and Function: Gan, Saladin, and McFarland delve into the structure and function of cells, including cell anatomy, organelles, cellular transport mechanisms, and cell division. They explore how cells carry out essential processes such as metabolism, growth, and reproduction.
  3. Tissue Organization: The book covers the four primary types of tissues in the human body: epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous tissues. It examines the structure, function, and characteristics of each tissue type, as well as their roles in maintaining homeostasis and supporting bodily functions.
  4. Integumentary System: Gan, Saladin, and McFarland explore the integumentary system, which includes the skin, hair, nails, and associated glands. They discuss the structure and functions of the integumentary system, including protection, thermoregulation, sensation, and vitamin D synthesis.
  5. Skeletal System: The textbook examines the skeletal system, which provides support, protection, movement, and mineral storage for the body. It covers the anatomy and physiology of bones, joints, and cartilage, as well as the process of bone development, growth, and repair.
  6. Muscular System: Gan, Saladin, and McFarland delve into the muscular system, which enables movement, posture, and heat production. They discuss the structure and function of skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscles, as well as the mechanisms of muscle contraction and relaxation.
  7. Nervous System: The book covers the nervous system, which coordinates and regulates bodily functions through electrical and chemical signaling. It explores the anatomy and physiology of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory organs, as well as the mechanisms of nerve impulse transmission and neural integration.
  8. Endocrine System: Gan, Saladin, and McFarland examine the endocrine system, which regulates bodily functions through hormone signaling. They discuss the anatomy and physiology of endocrine glands and hormones, as well as their roles in metabolism, growth, reproduction, and stress response.
  9. Cardiovascular System: The textbook explores the cardiovascular system, which transports oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and waste products throughout the body. It covers the anatomy and physiology of the heart, blood vessels, and blood, as well as the mechanisms of circulation and blood pressure regulation.
  10. Respiratory System: Gan, Saladin, and McFarland delve into the respiratory system, which facilitates gas exchange and oxygen delivery to tissues. They discuss the anatomy and physiology of the lungs, airways, and respiratory muscles, as well as the mechanisms of ventilation and gas exchange.

Overall, “Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology” provides students with a comprehensive and integrated understanding of the structure and function of the human body. With its clear explanations, engaging illustrations, and clinical applications, it serves as an invaluable resource for students studying anatomy and physiology in various healthcare-related fields.
