I give 2nd Edition of this book -1 star what a rip off I own the 1st edition of the same text and give that one a 4star is not a very comprehensive physiology text but if you want a quick review of the physio is good and it can be read in 1-2 days as refresher.
But I have compared the 1st edition and 2nd edition and is the same book word for word only difference is new edition has 146 pages and old one has 147 pages, and this is because they have made the size of some of the images smaller this way more text fit in the page.
I got this book originally to be supplemental in my med school physiology course as other in the MRS series are great review books. This book, however, falls short for that purpose. The topics covered are very limited and really aren’t even covered in enough depth to be an overview before diving into textbooks. That said, the topics covered in the book are very clinically relevant and high yield for situations you will face in internal medicine, medical ICU, etc. I think this book would for that reason be a nice supplement during rotations, just not as a course supplement or boards review.
A brief, to-the-point presentation of the most important points in clinical physiology. Enables the reader to see cardio-pulmonary-renal physiology as well as immunology and other areas as a clear conceptual whole.
