Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States, 10th Edition By Tommie L. Norris, DNS, RNAACN

The 10th Edition of Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States continues a legacy of excellence by providing comprehensive, nursing- focused coverage with a unique emphasis on concepts of altered health states. Instead of providing merely factual descriptions of diseases and disorders, this focus helps students grasp both the physical and psychological aspects of altered health. This title maintains its comprehensive depth with approximately 1,000 illustrations that show students the complex pathophysiology. In addition, this book features engaging unit-opening case studies that reinforce critical thinking and set the tone for the content to come. Understanding boxes, Geriatric Considerations and Pediatric Considerations boxes, and approximately 35 advanced 3D narrated animations clearly explain difficult- to-understand concepts. Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States is designed to make pathophysiology an exciting exploration that relates normal body functioning to the physiologic changes that occur as a result of

disease, as well as to highlight the body’s remarkable ability to compensate for these changes. Students develop a strong understanding of pathophysiology concepts with the easy-to-follow narrative that builds concepts on one another, defines words as content is presented (and also in a comprehensive glossary), and reviews concepts from physiology, biochemistry, physics, and other sciences along the way. ■ ■ *NEW* Concept Mastery Alerts: These alerts explain topics that students find confusing. ■ ■ *NEW* Pediatric Considerations and Geriatric Considerations : These boxes in each chapter specify how the chapter content applies to these two special populations. ■ ■ Unit-Opening Case Studies: Prepare for clinical practice with 15 unit-opening case studies that bring pathophysiology to life and help relate the clinical presentation to the underlying pathophysiology. Each unit- opening case is revisited in one or more chapters in that unit. ■ ■ Understanding feature : These boxes break physiologic processes and phenomena into their sequential parts, providing insight into the many opportunities for disease to disrupt the processes. ■ ■ Full-Color art: Increase your understanding of key concepts with the full-color art program of approximately 1,000 illustrations showing the clinical manifestations of diseases and disease processes. ■ ■ Review Exercises: Reinforce your understanding of key content with chapter-ending review exercises. ■ ■ Objectives, Key Points, and Summaries : Deepen your understanding by reviewing Objectives at the beginning of each main section, Key Points within main sections, and a Summary at the end of each main section. ■ ■ References: Easily access useful references including normal laboratory values in both conventional and SI units and a comprehensive glossary. ■ ■ Animations: Master the most difficult-to-understand disorders with approximately 35 advanced 3D narrated animations.
