Book Preface

Self-assessment is an important component of effective learning, especially when studying a subject as complex as medical physiology. The Guyton & Hall Physiology Review is designed to provide a comprehensive review of medical physiology through multiple-choice questions and explanation of the answers. Medical students preparing for the United States Medical Licensure Examinations (USMLE) will also find this book useful, since test questions have been constructed according to the USMLE format.

The questions and answers in this review are based on Guyton and Hall’s Textbook of Medical Physiology, twelfth edition (TMP 12). More than 1000 questions and answers are provided, and each answer is referenced to the Textbook of Medical Physiology to facilitate a more complete understanding of the topic and self-assessment of your knowledge. Illustrations are used to reinforce basic concepts. Some of the questions incorporate information from multiple chapters in the Textbook of Medical Physiology to test your ability to apply and integrate the principles necessary for the mastery of medical physiology.

An effective way to use the review is to allow an average of 1 minute for each question in a given unit, approximating of time limit for a question in the USMLE examination. As you proceed, indicate your answer next to each question. After finishing the questions and answers, spend as much time as necessary to verify your answers and to carefully read the explanations provided. Read the additional material referred to in the Textbook of Medical Physiology, especially for questions where incorrect answers were chosen.

Guyton & Hall Physiology Review should not be used as a substitute for the comprehensive information contained in the Textbook of Medical Physiology. It is intended mainly as a means of assessing your knowledge of physiology and of strengthening your ability to apply and integrate this knowledge.

We have attempted to make this review as accurate as possible, and we hope that it will be a valuable tool for your study of physiology. We invite you to send us your critiques, suggestions for improvement, and notifications of any errors.

I am grateful to each of the contributors for their careful work on this book. I also wish to express my thanks to William Schmitt, Rebecca Gruliow, Christine Abshire, and the rest of the Elsevier staff for their editorial and production excellence. I am especially indebted to the late Dr. Arthur C. Guyton, who wrote the first eight editions of the Textbook of Medical Physiology, beginning nearly 50 years ago. I had the privilege of working with him on the ninth and tenth editions and have attempted in the last two editions to continue his practice of accurately presenting the complex principles of physiology in language that is easy for students to read and understand.
