Overview:


  • Book Name : Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States

 

  • Author : Sheila C. Grossman

 

  • Pages : 1688

 

  • Book Description:

Over the last 30 years, Carol M. Porth’s text, Pathophysiology:
Concepts of Altered Health States, has become widely known
as a seminal text in pathophysiology for nursing and health
profession students. It is a testament to her extensive knowledge,
skills, and commitment that she succeeded in creating
such a student-friendly and, at the same time, state-of-the-art
book. It is a great honor to carry forward this tradition as the
new author of the ninth edition of Porth’s Pathophysiology.
The goal for this edition has been to retain the text’s solid
foundation while updating and incorporating new advances
in science and technology. Once again, talented clinicians,
researchers, and scholars have contributed their expertise and
knowledge to the book. The major emphasis continues to be on
relating normal body functioning to the physiologic changes
that occur as a result of disease, as well as on the body’s ability
to compensate for these changes through mechanisms of healing
and those that work to prevent and resist disease. Although
primarily designed as a textbook, the book also serves as a
reference that students will find useful throughout their educational
program and, eventually, in practice.
