  • Table of Contents


  • Anatomical art features an artist’s drawing with a photograph of the “real thing” to help students compare structures as they might appear in a laboratory or clinical setting, or includes an illustration on top of a photograph to help students identify location of structures.
  • Step-by-Step diagrams coordinate with the authors’ narrative descriptions and break down complex processes into easy-to-follow steps.
  • Conceptual Overviews present “big picture” overviews of structure and function relationships.
  • Clinical Notes present relevant information on diseases and disorders to help students prepare for future workplace situations. The discussions embedded in the running narrative explain how pathologies relate to normal physiological function, and the larger “boxed” versions focus on core medical or social topics.
  • Related Clinical Terms featured at the end of each chapter help students review vocabulary that they will likely use in their chosen careers. Each term is followed by a definition and, in many cases, a pronunciation guide.
  • Questions located at the end of each chapter offer hypothetical and clinical situations related to the body system covered in the chapter. Students can test and refresh their knowledge by applying the information they’ve learned to a specific clinical situation.
  • Key Notes call out core concepts in anatomy and physiology. These factual statements are highlighted with an icon and appear at appropriate points throughout the chapters. The complete set of Key Notes also appears in Appendix V at the back of the book.
  • Concept Check Questions appear at the end of chapter sections and help students test their comprehension before moving on to the next topic.
  • Figure Locator Dots appear with every figure reference in the narrative and function as placeholders to help students return to reading after viewing a figure.
  • Concept Links provide quick visual signals that new material is related to topics presented earlier and offer specific page numbers to facilitate review.

This newly revised paramedic specific book has been developed to meet the needs of a paramedic program and the interests of trained EMS workers, covering appropriate A&P as well as specific clinical applications. It will enable readers to develop their problem solving skills, build a foundation of basic concepts and essential knowledge, and master terminology and principles important to an understanding of the human body.
