The new edition of this popular text continues to present homeostasis as a dynamic concept that provides the basis for understanding health and well-being, and to recognize how failure to respond to homeostatic disturbances results in imbalances responsible for signs and symptoms of ill-health, and how health care interventions seek to reverse those imbalances.
It provides an integrated explanation of body functioning, with a description of related anatomy. The book is divided into major section: organization of the human body, mainf features and processes that must be controlled for health, the organ systems that act as homeostatic regulators, the challenges to that regulation, and case studies that place examples of ill-health and health care into the context of homeostasis. This new edition has been updated and extended.
