Designed for a one-semester course for clinical and allied clinical sciences, the book is written to accomplish one overall goal-to teach the basics of the subject in a thought-provoking, conceptual and application-based manner while fostering problem-solving skills. Through learning how to solve problems and think critically, readers discover the subject based on two things ? the relationship between structure and function, and homeostasis. Salient Features Complete coverage of all important topics like The Human Organism, chemical basis of life, cell, tissues, and all major organ systems, development-heredity-aging which are important from the syllabi point of view. Multi-color detailed photographs developed through an exceptional art program perfectly complement the textual content to enable conceptual clarity Homeostasis figures explain inherent mechanism behind a physiological process and System Pathology boxes elucidate the disease or disorder related to a specific body system Clinical impact boxed essays show applications in various fields like Pathology, Medicine, Exercise Physiology and Pharmacology Includes key laboratory experiments like Determination of Blood group, Bleeding time, Clotting time, Measurement of Blood pressure, Estimation of Haemoglobin, Pregnancy diagnostic tests, Family Planning Methods TABLE OF CONTENTS 1.
