McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle's Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrative Approach 3e brings multiple elements of the study of A&P together in unique ways that maximize understanding. Covering anatomy and physiology in each chapter, the text emphasizes the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of one system into textual explanations of how other systems work. All figures are carefully designed to support the text narrative, and they carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study tools. The text helps students apply chapter content by using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong in the body, crystalizing their understanding of the "norm." Mini self-tests at the end of each section assess students’ grasp of the material, and end-of-chapter assessments encourage students to apply and synthesize what they have learned. Career opportunities for A&P students are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter. Practical advice for remembering material is included throughout, and chapters end with a summary of available media tools.
