Students learn best when they can relate what they are studying to familiar issues, problems, and experiences, and Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology, 4th Edition does just that. With a clear and concise focus on anatomy and physiology, this new edition explains the normal structure of the human body and how it functions to maintain a state of balance and health — and covers need-to-know principles in an easy-to-understand manner. It focuses on how tissues, organs, and body systems work together to carry out activities such as maintaining body temperature, regulating blood pressure, learning, and responding to stress. Completely updated with a brand new art program, this engaging, user-friendly text clarifies concepts that are often difficult for various career-level health professions students to grasp through reading only.

    • The reader-friendly approach features a conversational writing style to enhance readability and comprehension.
    • More than 200 full-color illustrations with captions clearly demonstrate core concepts and reinforce important principles.
    • Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter provide an overview of the material that will be covered.

    • An extensive glossary provides definitions for all key terms, as well as many additional terms that may be unfamiliar.
    • Tools for Learning guide you through each chapter for a more focused study experience:

      • Quiz Yourself questions at the end of each major section allow you to reinforce and test your comprehension of key concepts.
      • Chapter Summaries illustrate how the topics covered in each chapter support the Learning Objectives.
    • Part captions — now integrated into the illustrations — clearly explain core concepts and highlight important principles demonstrated by the images.
    • An enhanced Evolve companion website offers additional learning exercises, including:
