Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction is the first text to meet the needs of the undergraduate bioengineering student who is being exposed to physiology for the first time, but requires a more analytical/quantitative approach. This book explores how component behavior produces system behavior in physiological systems. Through text explanation, figures, and equations, it provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of physiological principles with an emphasis on quantitative aspects.
Features a quantitative approach that includes physical and chemical principlesProvides a more integrated approach from first principles, integrating anatomy, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiologyIncludes clinical applications relevant to the biomedical engineering student (TENS, cochlear implants, blood substitutes, etc.)Integrates labs and problem sets to provide opportunities for practice and assessment throughout the course
NEW FOR THE SECOND EDITION Expansion of many sections to include relevant information Addition of many new figures and re-drawing of other figures to update our understanding and clarify difficult areasSubstantial updating of the text to reflect newer research results Addition of several new appendices including statistics, nomenclature of transport carriers, and structural biology of important items such as the neuromuscular junction and calcium release unitAddition of new problems within the problem setsAddition of commentary to power point presentations
