Allhealthcare students have to study anatomy and physiology. They often find it achallenging subject and struggle to see how the subject will link to theirprofessional practice. Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcareis a brand new textbook focused on what healthcarestudents need to know about the biological principles which underpin thepractice of healthcare. Uniquely,the book integrates clinical cases with the essential biological facts toprovide all students with a thorough understanding of how anatomy andphysiology can be applied in healthcare. Byusing clinical cases throughout, the book helps the reader grasp the practicalrelevance of anatomy and physiology to decision-making and care delivery. Theclinical cases have been carefully selected to reflect common conditionsencountered in practice today, and the changing patterns of disease andhealthcare. Clear high-quality full colour illustrations,links to appropriate web-based content, and self-assessment material make thisthe perfect, practical textbook for all healthcare students. Early praise: "Having reviewed the text I will be recommending it to my nursingstudents" "It looks like a very good introductory text, with clear illustrations anddiagrams. I think this would be appropriate for student nurses at differentlevels throughout their training." "I particularly like the approach of making the clinical relevance soclear. Introducing these at the start really sets the scene for why this topicis so important to clinical practice." "I am very interested in adopting this as a key text for ourcourse." "I particularly like the case histories which bring a clear sight ofapplication." "This book is excellent for the two new modules on anatomy and physiologyI am putting together." Review: "This textbook presents anatomy and physiology in a funand interactive way....It is divided into 14 chapters and the way the authorshave introduced the information gives it a modern twist. For example, insteadof titling a chapter 'The reproductive system', it is called 'From onegeneration to the next'. .....What works particularly well is the way theauthors have used case studies that reflect the reality of the changingpatterns of health and disease....This book provides a good foundation in clinicalapplication and it seeks to link theory to practice."

Masterful 2D and 3D head, neck, and brain dissections provide unsurpassed insights into head, neck, and brain anatomy An internationally renowned and beloved author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Professor Albert Rhoton has a special place in medical history. He was revered by students and colleagues and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern microscopic neurosurgery. A driving principle in his anatomy lab was the simple phrase, "Every Second." This was embraced in his philosophy that every second of every day, a patient's life was improved by a surgeon assisted by the anatomic knowledge his lab helped elucidate and distribute. Rhoton's Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain is the visually exquisite crowning achievement of Dr. Rhoton's brilliant career and unwavering dedication to the intertwined pursuits of surgical anatomy and neurosurgery. The atlas reflects the unparalleled contributions Dr. Rhoton made to the contemporary understanding of neurosurgical anatomy. Dr. Peris-Celda, with the collaboration of an impressive cadre of international multidisciplinary experts, worked closely under Dr. Rhoton's tutelage on this project. This book is the culmination of 5 years of work and experience gleaned from more than 40 years of surgical anatomy research and exquisite dissection techniques performed in Dr. Rhoton's laboratory. Special Features Each anatomic dissection meticulously labeled with English and Latin descriptors for easy cross referencing with other resources. Multiple views of the most complex regions of the head, neck, and brain provide a deeper understanding of anatomy. More than 600 anatomical images systematically organized in four major sections: Osteology of the Head and Neck; Face and Neck; Ear, Nose, Pharynx, Larynx, and Orbit; and Neuroanatomy and Cranial Base. Superb 2D images presented in a large printed format to optimize the viewing experience. 3D digital images fully realize the beauty of the dissections and enhance the learning process. Specimens injected with colored silicone provide better visualization of arteries and veins. Breathtakingly stunning, this atlas is certain to be a treasured reference for medical students, residents, and clinicians specializing in neurosurgery, facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and craniofacial surgery for many years to come.
Dedicated guide to the lumbar plexus provides invaluable anatomical and surgical insights Thorough knowledge of the lumbar plexus and its branches is crucial to achieving positive patient outcomes, especially with newer surgical approaches. Many of the nerve branches are formed within the psoas major muscle and careful dissection is necessary to free them during surgery to prevent damage. Moreover, the iliac vessels are medial to some of the larger branches of the plexus, such as the femoral and obturator nerves. In the retroperitoneal space, the kidney and ureter are nearby. In addition, due to the overlying peritoneal cavity and its contents, accessing the lumbar plexus presents considerable challenges. Surgical Anatomy of the Lumbar Plexus is the only book on the market devoted to the lumbar plexus and its branches, focusing on anatomy and clinical applications, pathology, surgery, and imaging. Internationally known authors R. Shane Tubbs, Marios Loukas, Amgad Hanna, Rod Oskouian and a cadre of esteemed specialists provide unique insights, clinical pearls, knowledge based on thousands of spine surgeries, and a well-rounded multidisciplinary perspective. Key Highlights Nine separate chapters dedicated to impacted nerves: subcostal, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, lateral femoral cutaneous, genitofemoral, femoral, obturator, furcal, and accessory obturator History and overview of dermatomal anatomy of branches derived from the lumbar plexus Anesthetic blockade of the femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, and genitofemoral nerves Tips for preventing complications and achieving positive outcomes for lateral transpsoas approaches to the lumbar spine and other procedures More than 100 novel illustrations provide clarity and understanding of a complex anatomical area as it relates to surgery involving the lumbar plexus and branches This one-of-a-kind resource provides crucial surgical and anatomical information on the lumbar plexus. It is a must-have reference for neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, and general surgeons. Reading it cover-to-cover will ultimately benefit patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery. This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.
