Graduate Level Pathophysiology Text

This text is geared toward the needs of a graduate student in Pathophysiology, and may not be useful for undergraduate students. Somewhat laborious sections regarding minutiae - the case study text ('Clinical Applications') helps with a need to review case studies.

very pleased

I was very satisfied with my purchase. It arrived quicker than expected, and in perfect condition.

Excellent resoucre to complimnet the original text

This book had been very useful in clarifying large amounts of information specific to disease processes. I would recommend this text to anyone that is taking advanced pathophysiology. The book has case studies that include outlines that highlight the disease process, treatment modalities, and intial assessment of diseses.

Great for health care professionals

This book is fantastic. I had the privilege of taking undergraduate and graduate level pathophysiology classes taught by Dr. Brashers and they have been the most helpful classes in my nursing career. This book is so good that I gave a copy to my sister who is currently enrolled in another nursing program so that she can have the best resource available. This is not a huge textbook that one must wade through. The format involves taking a common disease or disorder then going through a systematic process of discussing normal functions, genetic components, patho, and current research. Dr. Brashers does an excellent job of staying up to date on research, even given the limitations of printing. The list of topics is not all-inclusive, but the applications are much broader. For instance, the HIV section teaches one about the immune system. There are a few characteristics of the book that make it particularly useful. First of all, she is very clear in her language, portraying concepts in words better than any other textbook or reference books have done. She also uses a number of graphs and pictures to help those who are more visually oriented. Finally, she includes case histories so that readers can better imagine a complete picture of a patient and how care for them might evolve.

A great resource!

This book is a great resource for those in health care professions who are seeking to better understand how to apply pathophysiological processes in clinical practice. It is also a excellent guide to examining some of the pathophysiologic alterations seen in specific disease states. The feature that I have found most helpful are the flow charts, which summarize a significant amount of complex information into a clear and concise format that is easy to comprehend. The case studies are practical and grounded in the latest research. I eagerly anticipate the next edition!
