Book Summary of Essentials Of Medical Physiology

(Paperback)

Essentials of Medical Physiology highlights essential and relevant content of physiology with absolute clarity and includes concise step-by-step explanations complemented by numerous tables and abundant illustrations. The text has been organized systematically into eleven sections: General Physiology, Nerve Muscle Physiology, Blood and Immune System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Excretory System, Gastrointestinal System, Endocrinal System, Reproductive System, Nervous System and Special Senses. Each section has been subdivided into various chapters.
This book fulfills the needs of medical as well as dental students. Its conciseness makes it the preferred book for students of alternative medical sciences (Ayurveda, Homeopathy, etc.) and allied health sciences. This book will also be very useful for students pursuing Masters in Physiology.
