About the book this book presents concise and comprehensive coverage of the subject with emphasis on applied aspects of physiology. The concepts are explained in a simple and clear language supported by numerous diagrams, flowcharts and tables, which help in easy understanding and quick recall. Presentation of the text is tailored to suit the needs of undergraduate medical students. New to this edition all the chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated and many chapters restructured to establish logical flow of information. Two new chapters have been added—autonomic function tests and physiology of yoga. Many important topics such as second messengers for cyclic amp, cyclic GMP, calcium and g proteins, properties of skeletal muscle, flow–volume curve, factors increasing or decreasing renin, dialysis and renal function tests, acid–base balance, physiology of aging, computerized spirometry and evoked potential have been either added or further elaborated. Numerous important tables have been added, for example, differences between myelinated and unmyelinated fibers, isotonic and isometric muscle contraction, red and white muscle, epinephrine and norepinephrine, etc. Many flowcharts have been added—gastrointestinal reflexes, role of sodium in renin, role of intrarenal baroreceptor in renin secretion, formation of angiotensin and taste pathway, to name a few. Several new diagrams have been added and earlier ones improved for a better understanding and clarity. Clinical cases are included to promote analysis and application of acquired knowledge of basic science and to have clinical orientation. Key features: Covers all topics in physiology, as outlined by the mci, with focus on basic principles and clinical correlations, well-labeled diagrams to clarify the basic concepts and facilitate learning, flowcharts and tables for easy understanding of various mechanisms at a glance, useful and relevant clinical notes explaining physiological principles underlying various diseases, provides an extensive question bank at the end of each section, which includes long and short answer questions, to facilitate large number of MCQs at the end of the book to help students prepare for entrance examinations, clinical cases, an ideal text for medical students.
