With modules corresponding to the material in the Gould’s Pathophysiology for the Health Professions, 5th Edition text, Pathophysiology Online demonstrates disease processes and disorders in a clear and visual way. Animations, slide shows, and other interactive resources enhance understanding of pathophysiology for any learning style. A case-based approach presents information in small "chunks" for easier comprehension, encourages critical thinking, and helps you apply concepts. Within each module, a set of lessons lets you study and review pathophysiology — with exercises to allow self-assessment. Developed for students in the health professions, Pathophysiology Online is the perfect tool to get the most out of your book!

    • Clinical Correlation case studies let you apply pathophysiology to the real world, with each case including a patient with a pathology pertaining to a specific body system, along with an electronic health record and self-assessment questions.
    • Animations, slide shows, and audio narration demonstrate the more difficult disease and health processes, showing how, why, when, and the order in which abnormal physiologic processes take place.
    • Self-assessment activities promote learning with Self-Check activities such as image association, drag-and-drop, matching, multiple choice, and flash card activities, and Think About short-answer exercises — all with immediate feedback and source references.
    • Student-friendly features in each module include a lesson overview with learning objectives, glossary terms, and a module summary.
    • Audio glossary offers quick, easy access to new and unfamiliar terms — some with illustrations — along with pronunciations and definitions.
    • Additional photos and illustrations not included in the textbook visually reinforce learning.
