Review of Medical Physiology
William F. Ganong
The only medical physiology book that is revised every two years to reflect the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about mammalian and human physiology. It is acclaimed for its readability, reliability, and depth of coverage. This book provides a current and concise overview of mammalian and human physiology. Examples from clinical medicine have been integrated throughout the chapters to illuminate important physiologic concepts. A valuable self-study guide, which features content summaries, objectives, essay questions, and multiple-choice valuable self-study guide, which features content summaries, objectives, essay questions, and multiple-choice questions, is provided at the end of the book. The 20th edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new and expanded content on topics such as gene expression; genetic basis of disease; immunology; sleep and waking states; molecular motors; normones of the heart; sleep apnea; and addition. With this edition, the self-study section focuses more on physiology in relation to disease, as reflective of a similar trend in the USMLE.
