Vander's Human Physiology , twelfth edition, carries on the tradition of clarity and accuracy, while refining and updating the content to meet the needs of today's instructors and students. The twelfth edition features a streamlined, clinically oriented focus to the study of human body systems. It has also responded to reviewer requests for more clinical applications. Chapter 19 was new for the eleventh edition, with three complete case studies. The twelfth edition will contain an additional new case study. Additional Physiology Inquiries have been added to many figures throughout the chapters. These critical-thinking questions are just one more opportunity to add to the student's learning experience.
- New Case Study in Chapter 19: In response to reviewer requests for more clinical applications, Chapter 19 was added to the eleventh edition. It contained three indepth clinical case studies using integrative, whole-body responses to challenges involving homeostasis of the human body. With the twelfth edition, we have added an additional new case study!
- Additional Physiological Inquiries:You will now find critical-thinking and quantitative based questions integrated into many additional figures found in each chapter.
- New Feature: Additional Clinical Correlations ¿ Most chapters will contain at list one mini case study to help students relate the information they are learning to real life situations.
