Pathophysiology Online for Pathophysiology for the Health Professions, 4th Edition
With modules corresponding to the material in Gould: Pathophysiology for the Health Professions, 4th Edition text, Pathophysiology Online demonstrates disease processes and disorders in a clear and visual way. A wide range of animations, audio, and other interactive resources enhance understanding of pathophysiology for any learning style. Case-based content is presented in small "chunks" for easier comprehension, and includes Clinical Correlations to help you apply concepts you've learned. Within each module, a set of lessons helps you understand, study, and review pathophysiology with self-assessment through Self-Check activities and Think About exercises. Developed for students in the health professions by Karin VanMeter and Robert J. Hubert, Pathophysiology Online is the perfect tool to get the most out of your book!
- Animations 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.
- Clinical Correlation case studies let you apply pathophysiology to the real world, with each including a case "patient," an electronic health record, and self-assessment questions.
- Self-assessment activities make learning more fun and challenging, including Self-Check activities such as image association, drag-and-drop, matching, multiple choice, flash card activities, and Think About short-answer exercises -- all with immediate feedback.
- Learning features highlight important material with a module overview, a lesson overview with learning objectives for each lesson, glossary terms, and a module summary.
- Additional photos and art not included in the textbook visually reinforce learning.
- Audio glossary offers quick, easy access to new and unfamiliar terms, with pronunciations and definitions.
