This textbook provides an introduction to pathophysiology for students in a variety of academic programs for the health professions at colleges and universities. Major disorders are described as well as selected additional diseases with the intention of providing information on a broad spectrum of diseases with one or more distinguishing features for each. It is anticipated that additional information and resources pertinent to the individual’s professional needs may be added to classroom presentations and assignments. We trust that students will enjoy studying these topics and proceed with enthusiasm to more detailed studies within their individual specialties.
The textbook is organized into five major sections followed by the appendices:
Section I Basic Concepts of Disease Processes
Introduction to pathophysiology includes medical terminology and basic cellular changes.Topics such as fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base imbalances, basic pharmacology and pain are covered. The core information for each topic is complemented by the inclusion of a specific disease/condition as an immediate clinical application at the end of each chapter.
Section II—Defense/Protective Mechanisms
Topics such as inflammation and healing, infection, and immunity are covered. Specific areas included are a review of body defenses, healing involved in specific trauma such as burns, basic microbiology, review of the immune system components, and mechanisms. Section III Pathophysiology of Body Systems Selection of specific disorders is based on incidence and occurrence, as well as on the need to present a variety of pathophysiological processes and etiologies to the student. For major disorders, information is provided on pathophysiology, etiology, clinical manifestations significant diagnostic tests, common treatment modalities, and potential complications. Other selected diseases are presented in less detail, but significant, unique features are highlighted. Section IV: Factors Contributing to Pathophysiology m• Normal physiological changes related to cancer, adolescence, pregnancy, and aging, with their relevance and effect on disease processes and the treatment of the affected individual, are described.

Section V: Environmental Factors and Pathophysiology, actors such as immobility, stress, substance abuse, and environmental hazards are the major components in this section. Effects of the various environmental factors on the various body systems and potential complications beyond physical pathologies are discussed. New research and data are included as these are areas of increasing concern with regard to pathophysiology and patient health. Appendices additional information: Ready References include lists of anatomic terms, abbreviations and acronyms, a selection of diagnostic tests, an example of a medical history, a disease index, and drug index.
