Using a step-by-step approach, this book introduces students to the anatomy and physiology of the body systems and the corresponding medical terms related to them. For each body system, broad coverage of anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnostic procedures, treatment procedures, and pharmacology is provided.

The Real-World Applications section contains three critical thinking activities (Medical Record Analysis, Chart Note Transcription, and a Case Study) to allow readers to apply their knowledge to real-world situations. Labeling Exercises reinforce students' grasp of anatomy & physiology concepts.
