This beautifully illustrated volume brings to life all the
excitement and challenge of the study of human anatomy and
physiology in one stunning resource! Characterised by its friendly

Summaries and Review- and Critical Thinking Questions. The volume
also boasts over 1400 images together with the unique underlying
themes entitled the 'Big Picture' and 'Cycle of Life', which serve
to emphasize the importance of the interrelationship between
systems of the body and how these systems are influenced, in turn,
by development and aging. Alongside this emphasis on
interdependence and change, comes a focus on homeostasis, which
enables the reader to see how the healthy body is one that is
carefully tuned and that disease can readily occur when internal
balance is disrupted. Anatomy and Physiology, Adapted International
Edition, has been fully updated to make full reference European
healthcare systems, including drugs, relevant investigations and
local treatment protocols. The also book comes with an extensive
