Hailed as "an excellent distillation of the enormous topic of human pathophysiology...a superb reference for medical trainees," and as "a welcome change for scores of overwhelmed medical students," by professors from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple is the latest book in the acclaimed "Made Ridiculously Simple" series. Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple is a clear, logical explanation of physiology, pathophysiology, and clinical reasoning side by side, which will undoubtedly ease the transition from the basic sciences to the clinical years. This book will be a phenomenal learning tool for students in the second and third years of medical school and during USMLE Step 1 preparation, but will also be very helpful to nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professionals seeking to learn or review the physiological mechanisms of diseases, their diagnosis, and their management. Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple also contains a chapter of sample clinical cases and a CD-ROM entitled Differential Diagnosis. The CD-ROM allows one to select a symptom, sign, or lab finding and see all of the many diseases that could cause it, classified by pathophysiological mechanism. By teaching basic medical science and clinical reasoning hand-in-hand in a simple, light, and highly accessible writing style, this book provides an integrated and easy-to-understand approach to learning the science of medicine.
