Make essential pathophysiology concepts more engaging for your students (and easier to teach for you) with Understanding Pathophysiology, 6th Edition. With fully updated and streamlined features, this new sixth edition continues its tradition of delivering the most accurate information on treatments, manifestations, and mechanisms of disease across the lifespan, giving your students the fundamental knowledge they need to move forward in their nursing education and succeed in practice. Highlights of the new edition also include a new chapter on epigenetics, new content on rare diseases, a separate chapter for male and female reproductive alterations, and more simplified language where appropriate.

    • Introduction to Pathophysiology in the front matter section provides intro to the subject of pathophysiology and explains why it is important.
    • Consistent presentation helps readers better distinguish pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and evaluation and treatment for each disease.
    • More than 1,000 high-quality illustrations vividly depict clinical manifestations and cellular mechanisms underlying diseases.
    • Lifespan coverage details age-specific conditions affecting pediatric, adult, and aging patients in depth.
    • Algorithms throughout the text clarify disease progression.
    • Risk Factor boxes alert readers to important safety considerations associated with specific diseases.
    • Health Alert boxes highlight new developments in biologic research, diagnostic studies, preventive care, treatments, and more.
    • Quick Check boxes test readers’ retention of important chapter concepts.
    • Geriatric Considerations boxes and Pediatric Considerations boxes highlight key considerations for these demographics in relevant chapters.
    • Did You Understand? sections provide a fast and efficient review of chapter content.
    • Chapter outlines help readers find specific information with ease.
    • Chapter introductions explain why chapter content is important and how it fits into a broader health care context.

    • Glossary of selected terms familiarizes readers with the most difficult or important terminology.
    • Additional online resources on Evolve companion website offers access to animations, review questions, key terms matching exercises, and more.
  • NEW! Chapter on Epigenetics gives students knowledge and insight into key processes that influence normal and abnormal cell growth and development.
  • NEW! Streamlined tables and flowcharts make information easier to access.
  • NEW! Updated content throughout reflects the latest clinical findings and research across the full spectrum of pathophysiology.
  • NEW! Additional content on rare diseases gives students a more comprehensive understanding of conditions that affect the human body.
  • NEW! Division of Alterations of the Reproductive Systems chapter will now cover male and female reproductive systems in separate chapters.
  • NEW! 25 additional illustrations bring key concepts to life.
