New Features

Each chapter has been thoroughly updated to stay abreast of the latest developments in science. Significant new science includes:

  • The high frequency of everyday DNA damage (chapter 4)
  • Updates in muscle physiology on the length-tension relationship, the size principle in recruitment, tetanus, fatigue, muscle fiber types, and smooth muscle caveolae (chapter 11)
  • New insights on functions of the spleen (chapter 21)
  • New interpretation of reproductive effects of the environmental endocrine disruptors (chapter 27)

    11 new photographs, including: intestinal mesentery (A.8), histology of the adrenal cortex (17.11), macrophages attacking bacteria (21.7), T cells attacking cancer cell (21.24), SEM of acini and myophithelial cells of the mammary gland

    10 new pieces of new art including a full-page summary flowchart of cranial nerve pathways (14.39) and a full-page summary figure of macronutrient digestion and absorption (25.31)

    A new table of the complete genetic code has been added as an appendix.

    Chris Gan (Highline Community College) joins Steve Sullivan (Bucks County Community College) as digital author on the 7th edition of Anatomy & Physiology.

  • Key Features

    Beginning of chapter “Brushing Up” makes it clear why a student must know earlier concepts in order to understand a new chapter.

    APR 3.0 icons in the textbook to indicate the correlation to APR 3.0. Saladin's stunning visuals are paired with Anatomy & Physiology Ӏ Revealed's acclaimed cadaver dissection photos, animations, and histology images.

    End of chapter Study Guide offers several methods for student assessment:

  • “Assess Your Learning Outcomes” is written in an “indicative format” that doesn't paraphrase the chapter's main points but indicates what key points the student should get out of the chapter.
  • Feature: “Testing Your Recall”, “True or False”, and “Testing Your Comprehension” all build on Bloom's Taxonomy to assess learning outcomes, test simple recall and analytical thought, and apply basic knowledge to new clinical problems and other situations.
  • Feature: “Building Your Medical Vocabulary” tests the student's knowledge of medical word roots and affixes. This feature includes 300 of the most commonly used word elements in medical terminology.

    Exceptional writing. Saladin offers the reader accurate content that is presented at an appropriate level of detail for the beginning A&P student. The author incorporates clinical examples, real-life applications, and “try this yourself” activities to make the content interesting to the student, but does so in moderation to keep the discussion focused on the main ideas. Students are better able to understand the difficult information provided without being overloaded with extraneous details.

    Superior art program. Saladin raised the bar on art programs in A&P! Saladin's art program features the highest quality of realism, 3D appeal, accuracy, and clarity. Digital files of the entire art program are also available for use by instructors to allow complete flexibility for lecture presentations and assessment.

    Effective clinical coverage. Saladin uses clinical examples and essays to show students the relevance of the concepts they are learning to their future career. Some topics Saladin addresses include: medical imaging techniques, gene therapy, carpal tunnel syndrome, Alzheimer disease, AIDS, Viagra, and hypertension.

    CONNECT for Saladin: A&P, 7/e

  • All CONNECT assessments are assignable by learning outcomes (LOs) and by Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) Los and include animation, interactive, classification, labeling, sequencing, and composition questions; all are tagged to Bloom's levels 1-5.
  • APR 3.0 icons within e-book launch APR through CONNECT.
  • SmartBook is an adaptive reading experience that transforms the way students read and retain knowledge.
  • LearnSmart Labs is an adaptive virtual lab with outcomes-based lab simulations.
  • LearnSmart Prep is an adaptive tool to help students prepare for college-level work, and includes a virtual tutor.
