Packed with vivid illustrations and a wealth of hands-on applications, best-selling FUNDAMENTALS OF ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, 4E is written specifically for learners in a one-semester introductory A&P course in the allied health field who have little or no previous knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Known for its clear approach to teaching, the text is widely praised for its ability to break A&P down into very simple, easy to understand language. Content is organized according to body systems, and focuses on the body working together to promote homeostasis. Improving both the quality and quantity of text illustrations, the Fourth Edition’s new art program brings text concepts to life with new figures throughout. Designed specifically for the needs of health care programs, the all-new Learning Lab’s interactive simulation program helps learners maximize their success.

The text begins with an introduction to the human body, explaining anatomic terms
and the organization of the body from the cellular to the tissue level, how tissues form
organs and how organs comprise the various systems of the body. The chemical basis
of life is covered in Chapter 2, explaining how elements bond to form molecules like
carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and nucleic acids, which are the building blocks of cellular
structures. After a discussion of the structure and functions of cells in Chapter 3, Chapter 4
explains how cells convert the foods we eat, via metabolism, into a new form of cellular
chemical energy, ATP. This chapter also discusses how cells divide by mitosis, how we
pass on our genetic characteristics by meiosis, and the structure of the DNA molecule.
After this thorough yet understandable explanation of how cells operate, Chapter 5
describes the anatomy and function of body tissues.

Having laid the groundwork for understanding the cellular and tissue levels of organization
of the body, the text takes the student on a journey through the various systems of the
body. Each system chapter has an introduction to set the stage for explaining in general
terms what the system does and the organs it contains. Each organ is discussed in terms
of its anatomy and physiology, beginning with the first organ and concluding with the
final organ of that system. Beginning on the outside, the first system discussed is the
integumentary system in Chapter 6. The skeletal (Chapter 7), articular (Chapter 8), and
muscular (Chapter 9) systems are discussed next. These systems operate closely together
to allow us to move and respond to changes in our external environment.
The nervous system (Chapters 10 and 11) controls and integrates all other body
systems. Chapter 12 discusses the endocrine system, which operates very closely with
the nervous system in the chemical control of the body through hormones, helping to
maintain the body’s internal environment, or homeostasis.
