Abstract:

Completely Revised and Expanded, the Second Edition of Case Studies for Understanding the Human Body, is the ideal resource for students enrolled in any Anatomy and Physiology or Human Biology course. The case studies work well in a cooperative learning setting where students work together to review and solve open-ended questions associated with each case. The exercises are also perfect for individual homework assignments. The discussions cover common diseases of all major organ systems and present related topics that are often part of course dialogue. Topics for the Second Edition include new chapters on the digestive, respiratory, and nervous systems, as well as new content on the senses. Students will benefit from the real-world case studies discussed in the text and develop communication and critical thinking skills they will use throughout their lives. --Book Jacket.
