Book Preface

STUDY GUIDE, Sixth Edition, is designed for students who are enrolled in a one-semester course in human anatomy and physiology. The scope, organization, writing style, depth of presentation, and pedagogical aspects of the text have been tailored to meet the needs of students preparing for a career in one of the allied health professions.

These students usually have diverse backgrounds, including limited exposure to biology and chemistry, and this presents a formidable challenge to the instructor. To help meet this challenge, this text is written in clear, concise English and simplifies the complexities of anatomy and physiology in ways that enhance understanding without diluting the essential subject matter.


There are two unifying themes in this presentation of normal human anatomy and physiology: (1) the relationships between structure and function of body parts, and (2) the mechanisms of homeostasis. In addition, interrelationships of the organ systems are noted where appropriate and useful.


The sequence of chapters progresses from simple to complex. The simpleto- complex progression is also used within each chapter. Chapters covering an organ system begin with anatomy to ensure that students are well prepared to understand the physiology that follows. Each organ system chapter concludes with a brief consideration of common disorders that the student may encounter in the clinical setting. An integrated study guide, unique among anatomy and physiology texts, is located between the text proper and the appendices.
