Just Enough Physiology takes the reader on a guided tour of cardiopulmonary physiology. You'll discover how the heart, lungs, and circulation work in extreme environments so that you're better equipped to understand how they function-or malfunction-at the bedside, in the operating room, or in the intensive care unit. Just Enough Physiology also shows the field through the eyes of some of its most colorful pioneers. While the stories are fascinating in their own right, they also reinforce the foundational principles of physiology and reveal how those discoveries were made-sometimes at great risk, and often against stiff resistance. Written as bite-sized topics, Just Enough Physiology caters to the way people learn, study, and remember. Every subject can be read and mastered in one brief sitting. Like the brain teasers that are included at the end of each chapter, Just Enough Physiology emphasizes the logic, and not just the details, behind physiology. Just Enough Physiology will prepare all students and physicians-in-training for board exams while also teaching them how to think like a physiologist.
