  • Anatomy Demystified 1st Edition by Dale Layman

    by Dale Layman
    Say goodbye to dry presentations, grueling formulas, and abstract theories that would put Einstein to sleep — now there’s an easier way to master the disciplines you really need to know.
    McGraw-Hill’s Demystified Series teaches complex subjects in a unique, easy-to-absorb manner, and is perfect for users without formal training or unlimited time. They’re also the most time-efficient, interestingly written “brush-ups” you can find.
    Organized as self-teaching guides, they come complete with key points, background information, questions at the end of each chapter, and even final exams. You’ll be able to learn more in less time, evaluate your areas of strength and weakness and reinforce your knowledge and confidence.
    This clear, heavily-illustrated guide to the human body covers anatomy of cells and tissues, muscle tissue, major muscles of the body, nervous tissue, membranes, organs, cancer, the skin, the human skeleton, the nervous system, glands, the senses, the cardiovascular system, the immune system, the respiratory system, digestion, genitourinary system, the embryo, and more.

  • Atlas of Human Anatomy 7ED (Elsevier) by Frank H. Netter

    by Frank H. Netter
    Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter’s notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continued to update Dr. Netter’s original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc. Dr. Netter’s works are among the finest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomic paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over. The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but, more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949 “clarification of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as a medical illustration if it does not serve to make clear some medical point.” Dr. Netter’s planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what make them so intellectually valuable. Frank H. Netter, MD, physician and artist, died in 1991.

  • Fundamentals of Physiology: A Textbook for Students of … by RL Bijlani

    by RL Bijlani
    The first edition proclaimed itself a textbook for nursing students, but the aspects of physiology relevant to different biomedical courses differ little from one another. Further, the book meets the examination requirements of not only nursing students, but also medical, dental and paramedical students. The broad scope of the book is reflected in the revised subtitle. Those having the time and inclination to read more are advised to get hold of my other book Understanding Medical Physiology, which is not only more detailed, but also has more of thought-provoking and amusing digressions.

    Key Features This handy textbook has the basic physiology that forms the foundation of medical practice. The manageable size of the book has been achieved by discrete omission, rather than by compression. No compromise has been made with clarity for the sake of brevity. Further, words have been spent rather generously to encourage the student’s spirit of enquiry, sense of wonder and use of logic.

    • Includes topics such as nutrition, environmental physiology, and yoga

    • Makes learning physiology a pleasure, and inculcates in the student a life-long love for the subject

    • Not examination-oriented, but adequate for passing examinations comfortably
